Hmmm. . . another thread got me thinking.  What is the temp/pressure on the kegs?  Pushing with too much CO2 is fine short term, but long term it leads to over carbonation.  Over carbonation can kill aromas and if there is enough carbonic acid there will be a common off flavor in the beers.

Good catch. Especially with hoppy beers.
