Might be a strange question but if someone reeks of liquor and seems drunk and they tell you itís beer (Coors lite is what they drink), are they lying? I am not an expert but what I smell seems to be vodka or whiskey and they deny it. So either Iím wrong and they smell the same or he is hiding it somewhere.

Beer definitely smells different than vodka or whiskey.

Beer typically smells sweet. Definitely a different smell.

Alcohol doesn't have any smell. It's the hops, barley and other "stuff" that you can smell on your breath. The besy way to avoid smelling of hops, barley etc is to drink a clear spirit such as vodka or gin, especially if you drink them neat.

According to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), vodka is an odorless, colorless, tasteless spirit, and among cocktail enthusiasts it has earned a reputation as the de facto drink of choice for those who don't like the taste of alcohol.
