Stu McKinlay from Yeastie Boys holding the infamous Rex Attiude

From Stuff.co.nz comes a great write up on the Yeastie Boys latest effort, the much anticpated and debated Rex Attitude. They say is the world's first "whisky-beer", a golden ale made from 100 per cent peat-smoked, Scottish distilling malt.
 
Here's to the world's first known whisky-beer

It's said to taste like bacon, smoked kippers or medicine – so if you don't savour the world's first known whisky-beer, you'll definitely be spitting it out.
 
Wellington brewers Yeastie Boys have developed what they say is the world's first "whisky-beer", a golden ale made from 100 per cent peat-smoked, Scottish distilling malt.
 
"We thought we'd have a crack at it, and when we tasted it I knew we were going to have a winner," brewer Stu McKinlay said. "I didn't really think it would result in that – I thought it would be so intense it would be undrinkable."
 
Since then he and business partner Sam Possenniskie have heard the taste compared to bacon, medicine, coal tar and smoked kippers, and admit "Rex Attitude" won't be for everyone.
