Default harsh throat dryness

made a true brew canadian ale kit...followed the instructions
racked to secondary after two weeks in primary
bottled after 2 more weeks and it has conditioned in bottles for 2 weeks
it has a very dry throat feel...otherwise it aint bad
anyone know how this happened?
what could give it this harsh bite?

what was your final gravity? Can you explain this harshness any better?

I guess let it sit in the bottles for another 2 weeks. See what happens. I am not sure I can discern what you're tasting.

Dryness is due to the alcohol content?
I think it would be better if you let it age for about 2-3 months. Some of the harshness should disappear.

hope so, a friend said it was undrinkable
on the contrary i thought it was really hoppy and dry it also had a 2" slightly off white head that left a nice lace in the glass...i guess it needs some time to smooth out
