"Je n'ai jamais aimé le goût de la viande"

Can I use l'imparfait instead? : "Je n'aimais pas le goût de la viande"

'ne pas aimer le goût' is a past habit, has no clear begining and end, as well as expressing an opinion. Why can't we use l'imparfait?

Je n'aimais jamais le goût de la viande. -- I was never loving the taste of meat.

That's what it would sound to French ears.
