Is it just me or does the beer 'becks' stink of weed when you first open it?

My friend said i'm stupid but in this one case I believe I am correct.

thats the hops. If you drink a really hoppy beer, it will smell even more like weed. Like a barleywine or something.
What?! There's a clean channel on my amp?!

I have heard this, and get where you're coming from, but if it did really smell like weed - it's really bad weed.

I'd agree and also add this to the fray:

I had a beer once that smelled and tasted like chronic. Probably Becks.

I've slit the throats of clergymen and governors
Those bloated swine...
May their screams unhinge a thankless crown

I've never had Becks, but I once had a beer that smelled like Fruity Pebbles cereal. Leinenhuegel's or something.

http://www.drugtext.org/library/books/recreationaldrugs/hops.htm
"Those with a green thumb, might be interested in the fact that the hop vine can be successfully grafted to marijuana root stock. What the grower ends up with is a hop vine loaded with marijuana's active resins. The crushed, dried leaves work as potently as grass when smoked. However, the plant looks just like a legal hop vine, keeping the curious from knowing what is being raised in the grower's garden of delights."

Not sure how well that specific part works actually, despite them being related. You should research it a little more. >.>

As I've also read this:
"One of the most persistent myths in marijuana lore concerns grafting Cannabis to its closest relative. Humulus, the hops plant of beer-making fame. The myth is that a hops scion (shoot or top portion of the stem) grafted to a marijuana stock (lower stem and root) will contain the active ingredients of marijuana. The beauty of such a graft is that it would be difficult to identify as marijuana and, possible, the plant would not be covered under marijuana statutes. Unfortunately, the myth is false. It is possible to successfully graft Cannabis with Humulus, but the hops portion will not contain any cannabinoids."

Eh I get it when I can't be bothered to go to a real shop, best I can get from the shop round the corner.

It's better than most cheap beers anyway, I used to a bud guy but I don't think I am anymore.

Anythings better than fucking Carling. If I wanted to drink cat piss, I'd pick up one of my cats and squeeze them hard over my face.

Only time I'd EVER drink that stuff is if it's chap and I'm low on dosh.

I figured this, but the tops wouldn't be the bright green they look for from helicopters, just grafting the tops could be perfect - people tend to top their plants anyway

its either because the beer has gone bad due to it being bottled in a green bottle and then imported (and is damaged due to being light struck), or because thats how its intended to taste. ive never been over in europe to try beck's, so i cant really say with certainly which is the case, but its most likely one of the two. having tried the american import of it, id be willing to bet its the former.

If you're talking about the skunky smell some beers have, it's usually because they're stored in a bottle that lets too much sunlight in which causes a reaction with certain compounds in hops.
