Yeastie Boys Rex Attitude (330ml Bottle)
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.
The classic smoked beers hail from Bamberg in Franconia, Germany. These are made using malt that has been smoked over beechwood. The insistent smokiness may be applied to any lager style. In North America, the same technique has been used to make smoked porter. Whiskey malt beers are made using peat-smoked malt.
