"Although the occurrence of off-flavor formation in light-exposed beer was already recognized in 1875, the mechanism has not been fully elucidated to date. It is well known that LSF (light-struck flavor) is predominantly characterized by the formation of 3-methylbut-2-ene-1-thiol (MBT), which produces a foul smell already at concentrations of few ng/L. Formation of MBT, also called skunky thiol due to its resemblance to compounds occurring in the secretions of skunks anal glands, is unique to beer, as it is not present in other light-sensitive beverages such as milk, fruit juice, wine and champagne."
