Default So, what can you do with infected beer?

I have a beer with an infection that gives a sour taste and an after taste of plastic when you belch. What can I do now? Just drink it myself?

Here is a great reference to off flavors in beer: http://www.howtobrew.com/section4/chapter21-2.html

As for what to do with the beer...I think we all get in to this hobby because we are tired of drinking crap beer...so a beer that doesnt meet your standards and has off flavors should just be thrown away!
