Default Taste Difference

So I did my first brew it was a brewers best American pale ale. Everything went good we recently bottled waited a week and couldn't help but try one. Tasted just like I thought it was and considered it a success. Waited another week and popped one of the 22oz bottles today at the 2 week mark and it tasted completely different and not good at all. Any differences between the 12 and 22 oz bottle that would cause this?

Nah, it was probably a sanitation issue. Hopefully it was just that bottle.

Your beer is green. Expect it to change. It's going to take at least 3 weeks to carb properly, and even then the taste will continue to change. I think the bigger bottles take a little longer to carb, as well.

There is certainly a difference in the size of bottle as one will carb faster then the other - however - not THAT much.

As tgmartin said - it will change over time. I've had beer that is horrible but 2 months later it's great. And vice versa.
