Default my first beer makes me never want to stop drinking it

and it's a bad thing

i just finished my first beer and it tastes wonderful. The head is nothing impressive but it does maintain OK the aroma is pleasant and the color i cloudy like i can see through it like a lightly frosted mug but a nice beer color.

the problem was the finishing taste if is like a strong musty smell" but a taste". take another drink wonderful beer then horrible after taste

any ideas

I made a few can and a kilo type kits that had that really strong after taste, but I haven't had it in a while. Be extra careful about sanitizing all your equipment and keep your ferment temps down and I think you'll be able to avoid it in the future.

Wait until you pop one open in mid-August or so. Rule of thumb is, the best beer from a batch is the last one.

I'm keeping a few bottles from every batch I make to try half a year or more after bottling.
