2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
As most of the ratings suggest, everyone gets stuck on the name. That creates confusion and prevents you from trying to appreciate the beer for what it is. This is not a stout in nearly any sense. Itís a strong ale, perhaps. Golden with a head of large-form bubbles. Sweet, some citrus, the abv comes through in the flavor. And as the alcohol kicks in in the mid-palate, a strong medicinal note emerges, with a sickly sweet finish. Not very good at all. (cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

Gravity at SRAF. Pale yellow colour, thin white bubbles. Lemon meringue pie, hint of white chocolate, light apricot, light fruitcake spice on the nose. Velvety smooth, lemon and vanillla, custard, resinous hops, crramy and sweet but still light. Dessert wine esque. Nice light bitterness on the finish. Really really interesting, Iím unconvinced by the whole "white stout" fad, but this is definitely my favourite of the ones Iíve had. Great beer.

Opening with a resounding pop of the swing top bottle, the immediate note is one of zest, Lemon or Orange, which unfortunately reminded me of some cleaning products. In the mouth the beer is initially very sweet so doesnít give many clues to the alcohol of the beer. It has a rather vegetal quality on the finish, with the coriander seed adding an earthy spice rather than the more floral notes one would get from a coriander leaf. Initially I though this had little to offer a first, but it grew on me. Not a stout, but worth a punt.

25 June 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is lemony and yeasty. Thin body and slightly fizzy. Really sweet, moderate alcohol, lemon meringue.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[750ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Launch of Dr Hornbook in 750ml swingtop bottles. Brilliantly clear lemon yellow beer, with a very quick-dispersing head. Leaves only a lacing almost immediately, together with rising carbonation. Sweet banana and toffee aroma Ė banoffee? Surprisingly thin for a 7%er, but itís very smooth in terms of mouthfeel, and hides the alcohol really well. On the flavour - orange, honey, glucose and maybe some of the added coriander come out. Itís pretty complex, and would no doubt be great after sitting for a couple of months (was only bottled seven days ago). All told, a really nice beer

75cl bottle. Pours golden, almost clear and with a nice head. The nose has pale malt, meadow flowers and a sweet custard note. The taste has more of the custard and floral notes and thereís just a little bit of pineapple in there too. The palate is great - a large but elegant structure, with a big creamy texture through the middle section and an elegant, gradually tapering away finish. Overall, I really like this, itís not a stout as we know it these days, an Imperial Blonde perhaps or a Belgian Blonde but using British yeasts. Great!

Cask, half at The Cloisters. Amber coloured body, filmy layer at the top. Sweet citrus fruits to the nose. Blended flavour of sweet orange fruits and caramel malts, noticeable alcohol. Good, however, rather too sweet and a bit heavy to drink (Edinburgh, 14.04.2012).

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a golden colour with a barley wine style aroma of caramel, candy sugar, pine and alcohol. Similar flavours with alcohol fairly present . Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Definitely made me think of a barley wine more than a stout.
