Off flavor question

I’ve had a couple beers that under attenuated and they both have the same off flavor that I didn’t notice in the beer until I kegged. Samples before that didn’t have it. To me it seems solventy or medicinal maybe. I believe these both didn’t finish (1.071-1.020 and 1.056-1.016)
Wondering if there’s an off flavor associated with under attenuation. Both beers aerated with pure o2, pitched at 63 and fermentation held at 68.

The only off flavor I can think of that’s associated with under attenuation would be an over sweet flavor. Medicinal/solventy flavors are usually caused by chlorine and pH. I hve also heard that bacteria can cause medicinal/solventy off flavors.
