COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They said it couldnt be done, that it would be undrinkable, that we couldnt 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 Scotlands 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 worlds first beer made from 100% heavy peated distilling malt.


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

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.

330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesnt know its actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though.

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 (38) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2014
Yes, its 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.

Ferris (13161) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
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.

redknob (36) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2014
Tastes like someone dropped an Islay malt in a lager. Briny, heavy peat flavour but with thin texture. Smells like stale hobo sweat, like fermenting body odour. Points awarded for creativity and experimentation but it?s challenging to get through a bottle. Still worth a try.
