Your beer may taste like green apples (maybe cidery) if it's still, for lack of a better word, "green." Let it age a bit and that flavor will probably go away, leaving a wonderfully tasting beer.

Check out How to Brew Chp. 21 for more in-depth info.

Don't worry about it....Open one again in 3 weeks and it'll be fine...:)

Here's some threads with great info for new brewers and Mr beer users. You'll find the answer to why your beer taste funny right now...and why it'll be better in a few weeks.
