4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
White stout- it was only a matter of time. 500ml bottle. Diaphanous straw with a fine, well-fed white collar. Top, hop-smothered aroma; Fruit Salad chews, strawberry, tropical fruit, green herbs, flowers. Full-bodied, balanced and warming on the palate with notes of Fruit Salad chews, melon, Jazz apple, lychee, acetone and husky malt. Nowt but a hopped-up Transatlantic IPA I’d say; bright, tropical and flowery with a cask-like malt softness and the flavour to disguise the alcohol wickedly. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from Beer City, BB 04/2014.
Dorée/orangée, col blanc.
Arôme est houblonné et citronné en agrumes qui sont bien en avant.
En bouche, herbacé et amer fini sur une pointe de malt choco, palais citronné et épicé; agrumes et pamplemousse allant plus vers une petite APA anglaise, sur la fin je note une pointe épicée rappelant le cèdre et une certaine brasserie de Floride.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a large white bubbly head which dissipates. Looks surprisingly like a lager. Nose is malty and vinous. Flavour is more vine fruits, a touch of alcohol and white wine. Drinks really well. Finishes with a pleasant bitter buzz.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, 19.04.12 consumed at home Fri 20.04.12 Pours light gold with lovely white head. I’m not entirely sure what a white stout is all about but regardless this is a tasty beer. Hoppier than I was expecting, in fact really quite hoppy, resin hoppiness that sits at the back of the mouth and one that only just this stays this side of being unpleasant. Some sweetness is also apparent, I like this beer but seems more IPA than Stout. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.7

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden with a large off white foam. Aromas are white wine and gooseberry with lime. Kiwi with lemon and dusty yeast. Biscuit base malts with melon and spicy hops. Flavours are lemon and lime with dry biscuit malts. Floral with gooseberry and more hints of lime. Dry and fruity to finish with peppery alcohol. Decent but why claim it is a ’stout’?

200th Rating! 500ml bottle bought from Fenwicks in Newcastle, cooled inthe fridge for 90 mins before opening. Poured into a large tulip.Hazy golden body with a thick, rocky white head. Honey and farmyard aroma. First impression is of a barley wine, then a Belgian strong ale, then about 1/3 of the way through, the "stout" starts to make sense. The honey persists from the aroma, tempered with a custard cream smoothness and a hint of red licquorice. It’s full-bodied, thick in the best sense of the word and ultimately complex so that you keep sipping, because each mouthfeel reveals a new facet.Obviously, the ABV is noticeable, but thankfully does not overpower the experience; however, I wouldn’t want to drink a lot of it, or to drink it too regularly, but I feel like a proper connisseur having bought and sampled this fine and special beer for my 200th rating.
