What's wrong with that? I meant a new loaf of bread. I guess one cannot say
it like that in English?

OK, that has to be _good_, sorry, _to taste_ is a verb of perception which
of course requires an adjective not an adverb. I blame this on German: we
don't make any distinction between adjectives and adverbs, so both is _gut_
in this case.
