This may seem strange but it smells funny too, I kept thinking I know that smell but couldn't place it. So I sit down at the computer and open a Milwaukee's Best Light and its the same smell.
Hope yours turns out better than mine.
I'm sure yours will turn out just fine too, fermentation has many interesting smells.
