    no, only happens with bottled beer. and it never happened with other kinds of beer.

    the strangest thing is that the smell stays in the first glass if I pour it in a 2nd one, and the 2nd one is ok (with glasses from the same cleaning batch). like if this smell only develops after pouring a beer in particular conditions (temperature, time after opening, shape of the glass, etc).

    anyway now I have my "how to" to get rid of this smell if it happens. but I wondered if there was an explanation behind this.

    thanks to this discussion I now also know everything about my defective OR6A2 gene and aldehydes ;)

    Stink bug males aren't the most romantic blokes. A courting stink bug male will touch the female with his antennae, working his way to her nether end. Sometimes, he'll head butt her a little to get her attention. If she's willing, she'll lift her hind end a bit to show her interest. If she isn't receptive to his overture, the male may use his head to push her bum up, but he risks being kicked in the head if she really doesn't like him. Stink bug mating occurs in an end-to-end position, and can last for hours.


    During this time, the female often drags the male around behind her as she continues to feed.
