you will get are because of one of two reasons...
1. You didn't distill to high purity ( >93%). You're looking for
neutrality i.e. for doing vodka or schnapps. Flavour it
artificially later, if you wish. Don't try to bring flavour over in
2. Beer contains hops, and when concentrated (distilled over) will
make your distillate taste bitter. Remedy is, see No 1.
