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?

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
