I've had a couple really bad pints from a local brewpub, and I was wondering what might be causing it?
It started when I tried their blueberry wheat last summer. It tasted like I gargled with Dawn dish detergent.
It happened again a few months later, only it was supposed to be a cream ale! These two styles are different enough, I don't think it's just the one recipe or one ingredient doing it.
Any ideas from those of you "in the know" as to what causes this soapy flavor? Is it simply that they're allowing too much cleaner to remain unrinsed in their vats? Or is it an ingredient interaction thing?
