Your beer should lose quite a bit of that bitterness with extended conditioning. Forget about it for about six months then try a few and see how that works.

I just dumped a two-year old attempt at an American light lager.  It had a weird bitterness that did not seem to be from the hops (all Perle IIRC).  I tried extended conditioning, blending in the glass, etc.  Simply did not like it.  In the end, I needed the keg and there was only about two gallons left anyway.

It looked like great beer swirling down the drain, but I will not miss it.

Gonna try to let this condition in the keg as long as possible. If I need the keg and it is still tasting bad, I will dump it. Had a taste last night for the first time in a few days. Still bad but not as bad...haha
