Can you post your recipe and fermentation conditions? That will help diagnose what's going on.

And that's my point...standards and tastes change over time and differ from person to person. Maybe those kings/pharaohs expected beer to taste a way that we wouldn't find acceptable now.Then we agree. I just don't think we can assume that we'd hate them or that they were bad, someone around today would probably like them, maybe even you or I.
I think standards were very different back then. Probably a lot of their food would be infected and sour, but since that's the way everything was, it didn't generate much notice. Add in the fact that even if infected, beer was safer to drink than water and hey, it had alcohol!Yeah, but who says sour is automatically bad? Not lambic brewers, that's for sure.
