COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Stout is the ultimate beer in our "White Range". While the word "stout" has come to mean a dark beer, the original meaning was strong and true. Before the porter brewers commandeered the word to mean a stout, or strong, porter it referred to any strong beer. We have rehabilitated and improved the genre. White Stout is a very pale, full bodied, strong beer. American columbus hops are used throughout to give massive floral and resinous character. At a strength of 7.2% this is a true stout. Indeed, few modern stouts of any colour are true to the word for strong.

Idiosynkrasie (4809) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of gooseberry, pear, strawberry, a spicy touch of celery. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, fruity hoppy overtones, mild bitterness, a floral touch; strong, full body. OK.

JorgeLee (1408) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle from Beer Hawk. I quite like this style of beer so I’m probably biased. There are some fairly idiotic review comments here, or maybe the brewery expected the beer geeks to be a bit geekier than they actually are! Rich, slightly (quite!) boozy, nice pale ale malt character, then quite a big hop bitterness. Definite C hop character, maybe a tad incongruous? Or maybe more refreshing? I quite enjoyed this!

Hazy light copper, decent off-white head. Aroma is light and yeasty. Flavours of pine, citrus, caramel, a little tropical fruit. Unsurprisingly boozy. Decent.

imdownthepub (11291) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Dirty blonde with off white head. There is a big, fruity, alcohol hit early on, apricot and plummy notes, some malty sweetness, some caramel, boiled sugar notes. Quite a hefty beer but reasonable.

mario_giri (162) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Leicht trübes mittleres orange. Sehr fester extrem langanhaltender strahlend weißer Schaum. Fruchtige Hopfennoten und leicht süsslich nach Honig. Im Antrunk etwas bitter, sehr schön aufgefangen von einer milden süße die etwas am Honig erinnert, würzig! Das Mund Gefühl ist mittelvoll eine feine und doch recht starke Karbonisierung. Der Abgang bleibt malzig und ein wenig bitter, die Früchte bleiben auch bestehen. Fein, aber wenig kantig.
