    I keep a keg online at the house all the time for almost 5 years....I've drafted Blue Moon, Bud Light, Guinness, Monk's Ale, Widmer and tons more.

    3 things cause beer to taste bad out of a keg

    1) Dirty Lines as was stated
    2) Carbonation as was stated
    3) The keg has sat in there too damn long....a keg will start to go "off" after about 45 days

    And too.....dirty glassware......the beer can be awesome....the glass you drink out of....not so much LOL

    It's probably because of the sugar content in the beer. (the headaches, that is)

    Most light beers are diluted and the sugar content is lower (hence lower calories).

    The main reason wine gives people a banging headache is the sugar. Same with light vs. heavy beer. The more calories in it (a 20oz Dos Equis has 236 calories in it and 17.5gr of carbs -- most of which come from sugar) the more likely you'll get a headache.

    As for the draft vs. bottled/canned debate, I dunno. Maybe you drink more or faster than you would out of a can. Or maybe you guys are just pansies.

    This. If your beer tastes soapy, you might have gotten a soapy glass. Especially if you drank others that tasted fine.

    thats pretty much every factor to different tasting beer, also if they dont "run" the line to get the beer that sat in it over night will give it a bad taste too, since its not being stored at the right temp. if the beer is too cold or the glass is too cold it will cause it to foam up more. Everytime our beer guys came i made sure they cleaned the lines :rolleyes: pretty sure they hated when i was bartending
