    My APA tasted good after 2 weeks, but after 3 weeks beer changed color and taste stale. Could be oxidation? And why did it appear after 3 weeks?

    Yes, it definitely sounds like oxidation. The color change (darker I assume) and stale taste are telltale signs. It may have happened during packaging if the beer was exposed to oxygen or splashed when transferring.

    Is there a way to fix it? Will aging change anything?

    Unfortunately, with age, oxidation will get worse. Drink them fast if they are still palatable.
