Recently had a small tasting with my buddy, so we'd been drinking the same stuff all night and eating pretzels / crackers in between brews to cleanse the palate. We had room for another at the end, but the two Narwhals we opened we both agreed tasted smoky and, to be frank, like drinking bacon. I've had the beer a number of times before and never had that experience, and my friend's wife also couldn't taste or smell any smoke (she'd not been tasting with us). Knowing that we both had the same taste come out of two bottles of beer led me to believe it was because of the foods / particular beers we'd been tasting prior. Is there any food I should purchase before our next tasting to serve as a palate cleanser? I was thinking about sorbet (lemon?), but wondering if anyone else had suggestions. Thanks!
