I of course tasted beer before I bottled it all up and it tasted a little watery, is that common? It's a muttons nut brown ale

Uncarbed beer doesn't taste like the finished product. Don't worry.

When beer is carbonated it adds carbonic acid taste and bubbles of course so a beer that had been chilled and carbonated will taste completely different than pre bottle. Just give it time

Never judge a beer until it has gone through the entire process.
