Yeastie Boys Rex Attitude Peat Smoked Strong Golden Ale 330ml
Pours a brilliant, lambent, pale gold with a airy white foam. The first nose is shocking: campfire ash, medicinal, creosote, coal tar soap… Pulling back reveals a rich fruity undercurrent of jellied feijoa and hints of citrus. The mouthfeel is full, luscious, with a lingering weight and sweet malt. The earthy, almost swampy character is noted through the mid-palate before the hops lend a drying bittersweet finish to the beer. The smoke returns to coat the mouth in a tannin-like character reminiscent of heavily-oaked red wines. A great food beer - especially with subtle meat dishes (not smoked meat) or citrus deserts.
Rex Attitude is a great mid-90’s techno track from a French DJ named Laurent Garnier. Lovers of Islay whiskies (or other smoky west coast ones) seem to be the most excited. To pure beer lovers it is a real headspin… the jury is out in that department, especially to the classic hophead craft beer fan, but those who are open to esoteric beers are extremely excited by it. If you love beer and whisky, you’re probably in for a real treat!
