Try cleansing your palate with some lemon sorbet, or eat some cheese with your beer. Some things are best tasted together.

Non-smoker. I've tried palate cleansing. Sometimes they taste-buds just ain't happy no matter what.

Guess it could be meds interaction. I'll have to check the side-effects again.

Kind of Sucky thing is I love beer and I love hot spicy foods, but I inherited GERD.

Neither of which are good for it. Ah well, I'll have another pint!

Food changes beer tastes for me drasticly. I very rarely eat and drink beer at the same time. Usually just have a coke with dinner and beer before and after.

Yeah, me too. Fexofenadine. Mold, grass, dust, pollen, cats, dogs, everything gets me. And I have cats and a dog.

You just need a bacon sorbet to cleanse the palate before drinking!

Hey, Zymurgrafi, did you grab your DDBC pint glass when you left? I forgot to remind everyone to take them home with them.

I understand where you are coming from. My perceptions of flavor change wildly. One way I have noticed it changing in regards to beer is my perception of sweet, malty and bitter. One day I will try an IPA I brewed and it will seem lacking in hop flavor. Next day I open another bottle of it and it is taste adequately hopped. Last year I brewed really malty brown ale. Some days I could hardly taste the malt. I bought a pack of Avery’s Brown ale, which is pretty malty, and I experienced the same. That was when I realized it was me. And I’ve done the palate cleansing thing, as well (and I don’t smoke). When it is on, I amaze people. Because of this I never do tasting notes on my recipes until almost all the beer is gone.
