Beer DOES taste different when you have to use the wrong arm

    Seriously it's true. Got out of hospital yesterday after a week being layed up with a totally fnuck'd wrist. Currently my right arm weighs about 2 ton, is stuck in a plastic cast and has more metalwork than a scrap yard sticking out of where I think my right wrist is/was.
    So last night Mrs Al poured me my first beer in over a week and therefore due to the enforced immobility of my right arm I had to employ the alternative limb, left arm, and to my horror, it tasted differently, same beer as always, but really YUCK.:confused::confused::confused:

    No it's true, it don't taste proper. I blame the effect of gravity being reversed by lifting the glass with my left hand. Well that's my excuse.

    Al, the answer to your failed flavour is swap watch over, drink in view of a mirror, arm ow looks correct, magic! Ps, hope your arm won't go septic, Al?

    Drinking straws are the answer.

    There must be other factors involved here..... I'm currently on my 2nd pint of Nastro Azzurro and I can't tell any difference. I have been up since 3am to catch the flight and altitude here is about 8000 feet so these may be affecting my lack of judgement. Hic....
