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.

cloudy light orange,solid head/lacing. I fucking sniffed it,my bad and it was spearmint/evergreen/bandaid smoked bugspray with campfire with some slight sweet fruit. Taste is some sweet malt,with weird smoked tones like someone just threw their whole campsite food and tents into the campfire and bbqed it. Finish is tobacco ash linger Like a weird night where you accidentally drank a cig but in a can of beer weird... but better. If you camp and smell your clothes the next day, this is what it tastes like in your mouth after drinking it for a while.

Bottle from Taylor’s Market, Sacramento. Pours murky golden with a rocky off-white head and a smoky aroma. There is an equally smoky peat malt flavor. This one is not for the faint of heart. It’s real smoky, but should appeal to devoted single malt scotch drinkers.

bhensonb (15079) - 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!

Great idea but the execution could have been better. Big peatiness but too much ash battling the smoke.

I like the thought, but the beer is just a little too peaty. I love my islay scotch, and you dont tend to get that ash tray taste, but with this beer thats whats left in your mouth after each sip.

Tmoney99 (14365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted smoke malt and peat aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy peat smoked flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Don’t f-cking sniff it and swirl...this is Scottish malt. Drink it.

Sample at the festival. Really peaty, smell like gauze, smokey, blonde color. Strange beer

Bottle, bought @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cph.
Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is heavy peity smokey, crisp and light doughy malts. Medium carbonation, dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has a lot of smoke, peity, fairly crisp malts. Quite citric and grassy bitter finish.
