COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said it couldnít be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldnít use more than 5% heavy peated malt in a beer. So we carefully considered their advice and decided to try 100% instead. Rex Attitude is inspired by French techno and the whisky of Scotlandís west coast. Like the íAuld Allianceí it combines a little Scottish rogue with a dose of French je ne sais quoi. It is, as far as we know, the worldís first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt.


Donít fucking sniff it and swirl... this is Scottish malt. Drink it.

Unlike any other beer Iíve tried and not at all what I expected. The nose is quite awful really but I donít think itís meant to be sniffed. Upon drinking I was greeted with a mouthful of smokey dirt. It reminded me of the burnt bits left in the pan after roasting a chicken. If you havenít experienced peat before this probably isnít a good start as itís quite unforgiving. If youíre a fan of peat then youíll love this beer. Itís ironically quite light in colour.

tdtm82 (1017) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle; Ale House; Chelmsford. 21st March 2015 Iodine aroma, peat, TSP. Golden pilsner base. Very clean. Really interesting use of whisky casks. Finish is alcohol and fruits. Itís fascinating. Just not a fan of this but it is well-made.

Golden Ale, supersmoky - like drinking a BBQ. Amazing Discovery - Love it. Rare find though

Bottle at home. Pours hazy pale yellow, nose is peaty, medicine, light fruit, taste is similar, dry, a little thin.

Big peat smoke aroma that to me is like band aids. Flavor redeems things with a more scotch whiskey character.

anstei (226) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesnít know itís actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though.

mcberko (8725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is all Islay, with tons of smokey whiskey. Flavour is intense, with nothing but smoky Islay. What a monolithic beer. Not exactly good, but a cool beer to try.

PetesBeers (37) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2014
Yes, itís peaty... hello?! Easier with a blocked nose, like mine, but still... Perfectly drinkable, and I like the unique, smoky after-taste, so there.

Bottle share. Thanks Amanda! Cloudy yellow. Aroma is earthy peat, straw, honey. Taste is sweet. A bit thin but really interesting and great aroma.

Bottle - Sweet peat, smoke and BBQ. Clear gold with a decent white head. Just like it smells, lovely peat, a total smoke bomb. Love it long time.
