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.

Bottle 330ml.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted - caramel, moderate to heavy smoke, peat, wood smoke. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long long duration, initial just smoke smoke and smoke, wood and dry, later i did also get light yeast and fruit in the back ground. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Fun beer but to smokey to me ;O) [20120523]

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 28, 2012
On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is intense peat that imparts heavy earthy smoke, leather and a hint of bandaid. Flavor has heavy peat that gives a earthy, bog peat note with underlying leather, ashtray and smoked meats. A bit overwhelming.

Yestie Boy’s Rex Attitude made with 100% smoked malt. 7% served in a beer mug. When I think smoked beer I think dark beer, amber brown but this pours a crystal clear deep gold with a good half-inch of foamy head leaving behind decent lacing. The aroma is not-surprisngly smoke, specifically peaty but with some of that slightly chemical almost band-aid type of aroma. It has zero hop bouquet and in terms of smell is close to a whiskey or scotch. Medium bodied with a relative smooth or slightly slick mouthfeel the taste is woody, wood smoke, peat, charcoal briquets... basically you’re drinking smoke. It settles in the pit of my stomach in an acidic way. I should have brought this to share with people, 330ml may be too much for me to drink on my own it is an over-the-top beer. Interesting concept, drinkable but seriously 50-100ml is enough... probably if you enjoy whiskey you will dig this beer much more than me.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden and smallish white coloured head. Aromas are dominated by smoke but no where near as much as I anticipated. More medicinal than the smoking bacon I usually get with beers of this type. Flavour wise I dont get a lot. A little smoke comes through and there is a little light caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is relatively thin. Other than that not much else. No where near as over the top as I expected.

Holiest of holy crap what is this?!?!? To say this beer smells of chloraseptic would be an enormous understatement. I popped the cap and the smell filled the room, and the next room as well. After letting it sit for awhile, I was able to also identify heavily peated malt. It may just be safe to drink after all. I’d give it a try anyway as it is my adventurous nature. Cloudy amber, thick sticky head. Extremely ashy and peaty flavor, intense, within a lemony orange base. Clean, but in a clincally too clean way.. In a strange way, I kind of admire the boldness. Then again, it’s very gimmicky. I can see myself a few years from now craving this beer. For now, I think I’m good.

massive amount of peat an smoke from beginning to end. Unfortunately, as is common peat and light color ales dont mix well and this beer is no exception. Hardly detect the hops.
