First brewed in 2011, Rex Attitude is an annual release that can be best described as the Islay whisky of beers. Bright gold and deceptively bold, Rex Attitude is the world's first heavily-peated single malt golden ale. Rex Attitude is a deceptively innocuous looking beer but that all changes when you realise it is, quite possibly, the smokiest in the world. Undoubtedly the most polarising beer we've ever made, it is actually very delicate and beguilingly drinkable for those who get past the initial shock of its peat-smoke intensity. Pale gold, with a very light natural haze, Rex throws a sweet and heavily smoky aroma. Peat fires give way to underlying fruit aromatics reminiscent of feijoa the classic kiwi backyard crop and clean pale malt flavour with a gentle bitterness. The dry smoky finish lingers on the palate, like a daytime alternative to Islay whisky.
