Default can I get a tastebud transplant?

Because I would love more stable tastebuds!

I have been noticing lately that depending on the day or hour, or what have you my beer (or even commercial beers) taste different. Different in a bad way!

My Pale ale as an example. Some days it tastes pretty darn good; a few flaws, but enjoyable. Then there are times when I think it is undrinkable. Example a few days ago. I tried my APA and thought it was awful, after enjoying it the day prior. I then tried a bottle of SNPA as a comparison. It too was pretty bad.

Bitter in a not good way. Coincidence?

Anyone else experience this?

I have noticed that beer/coffee etc all taste differently if I eat/drink different things before hand.

Well that would probably solve the problem Bird. Everyone knows carnivores have no taste!

I find carnivores rather tough and overly gamy.

Perhaps I just have passing supertaster tendencies...

I've noticed that my allergy medication (Allegra) really changes my perception of taste.

Everything tastes better after a hard day's work.

If you were a woman I'd say hormones. They screw everything up!
