I've found that lots of the time it tastes worse after 1-2 weeks in the bottle than it does right out of the bottling bucket (flat). Seems like it takes another couple of weeks for the yeast to finish carbing it up, and soaking up all the bi-products-then the intended flavors really come through and it's carbed as well.

Default Can you better describe the taste?

Is it like sucking on an old tea bag? is it like vinnegar? depending on the taste of it there are plenty of explanations.
No matter how rich you are, you can still only drink 16 or 17 liters of beer a day.
