COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said it couldn’t be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldn’t 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 Scotland’s west coast. Like the ’Auld Alliance’ it combines a little Scottish rogue with a dose of French je ne sais quoi. It is, as far as we know, the world’s first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt.


Don’t fucking sniff it and swirl... this is Scottish malt. Drink it.

This beer smells like a dirty soi in Bangkok, with a hint of Laphroaig. Although past smell, it is pure SUCCESS.

bhensonb (10983) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very hazy gold with a creamy off-white head. Wow. The aroma is very, very smoked malt. Med body or better. Flavor is quite smoked malt. I think there’s some hop bitter in this. But it’s godawfully smoke. Like BrewDog went to NZ. Crazy stuff!

Lubiere (9939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
A hazed golden blonde ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, suoer smokey malt with wood extract, molasses, phenolics, intense. In mouth, a smooth smoked up malt with wood extracts, phenols, intense yet restrained, pleasant, would be good with ham. On tap at Ginger Man NYC, Sept 21, 2012.

Scopey (6754) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, KL. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is heady, rich, peaty, earth, medicinal, mild acidity and big smoky laphroaig action. The taste is bitter, medicinal, earthy, smoked peat, toast, grain and dough with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation carbonation. As a fan of pleated whisky the nose blew me away, taste wasn’t bad either. Very good.

Drinks alright which was a surprise for me after hearing reports it was awful, loads of peat in the aroma with smoked ham in the taste.

pentaz (1238) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours unclear golden with a fully lasting and light lacing big foamy off-white head. Aroma is heavy wooden smoke, hay, peat, a little iodine, grass, candy, leather. Taste is medium+ sweet and light+ bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily/light sticky, carbonation is medium. Finish is sweet and the smoke lingers for quite a while. I expected the flavor to be way more earthy, but the sweetness and smoke took the stage. It’s quite easily drinkable, and I think would be great to put with food. An extra point for being so drinkable.

Rangi (573) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2013
I like this. It’s smokey, tasty and full of peat (obviously, useless statement). Not much else going on apart from the peat aroma and flavour. Little thin on the palate. Peat lingers in the mouth slightly but pleasantly. Beer over all is punchy, different, a little bit confronting but really it’s something interesting for a change.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 1, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Hazy and fraught yellow clear color, optimal bubbly presence and great creamy foamy head of lond duration and volume. Unusual smoked nose, little spiced and crisp; notes of smoked cheese, malty, honey. Fresh start in mouth, discreet alcoholic impact and realy prickly and lively taste. Very arid and bitter end with notes of ash and roast wood. Irregular but at the same time palatable.
