Ok, disconnected one of the two kegs from the CO2 then purged the air from the keg. Took a sample, and DID NOT detect this same taste!

So, I guess this can be narrowed down to the beer lines...right? If that is correct, I suppose I should get some replacement 3/16" ID beer line. Any suggestions? I got this line from my LHBS which has been very good to me, so I assumed it was the right stuff...it says 1/4" Foxx Superflex PVC. Any thoughts?

This is a good discussion/test by Kal. I ended up using LLDPE tubing 3/16" ordered from Mcmaster, works for me but might not be the best thing for you

Maybe he means after 5 pints he can't taste it anymore because of his blood alcohol level
