How do you know the first batch was infected? You could miss your mash temps or add too many short-chain fermentables and dry your beer out to where it tasted like apple cider.
If it were Acetobacter, it WILL taste and smell like malt vinegar, so I don't think that's what you are experiencing. Can you post your beer recipe and process?
