Not to bad... Not to good... Kind of sweet and sour at the same time. I taste the honey but I also taste apples? Huh?

It's young... Only two weeks old.

What should I be looking for?

Another two weeks of shelf life. That off-flavor should drop out fairly shortly- how was the carbonation? Kyle

Apple flavor = acetaldehyde, one of the intermediate products yeast go through between maltose and ethanol. given time the yeast finish converting it to ethanol. Let the bottle sit where it is warm for another 2 weeks and then chill one to try. Then leave the rest where it is warm for another 3 weeks so the dark beer matures. Then you will have good beer.

Sounds good! Looks like I'm off to the bottle show for something to hold me over.
