What type of ethanol exposure do these results imply?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

ETG level does not correlate well with type of alcohol or even the amount consumed.

The positive test implies the alcohol was definitely consumed.

In a normal individual this has to be at least 3 drinks of hard liquor to produce that level.

Best wishes
