My wife can be a very discriminating person. She is not much of a beer drinker but there are some she likes. So I'm ever trying different recepies till I find one she says she likes and will enjoy.

The other day we enjoyed a nut brown ale that I made. I cannont remember what we were eating with it but she had comments of praise. Not more that one day later the same keg of beer I pulled another pint and it was terrible. Is she crazy or can one's tastes varry (particularly when pairing with food) so drastically from one day to the next?
Tasted the same to me. Did I just not mind that it did not go with what we were eating? I realize my tastes are not that discriminating at all. Besides I made it & you bet I think it's da*n good beer.

Food can have a huge impact on beer and beer on food. The other day I tried to drink a mild brown ale with some vindaloo and I dont know what is was but one of the spices in the curry made the beer taste like chalk, after I finished my food the beer was fine so there are some strange beer/food interactions.

Food matters. Also, if you were plowing her at the time, that might have made a difference.

No it was with dinner, and the kids were all there and she doesn't ever drink much. It just surprises me that she can be soo particular and me not particular at all.

How old was the ale? If you had just carbed it, the taste can change overnight, as carbonic acid builds up. I have had brews where the taste changed daily, up to a point.
