I've been sampling beer every few weeks and my tastebuds are finally coming back around I think. I can drink Red's Rye PA and Centennial IPA without my mouth and face contorting.
My wife picked up some Bud last night and I tried that too... believe it or not, the first couple of sips there is actually taste the hops, they're floral... then they're gone, lost in the rice or something.
Anyway... I'm able to drink a few now and again... again.
