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.

downender (6293) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/7/2012. Deep gold in colour with a thin white head. Sweet, summer fruit aroma with a tropical kick. Fairly heavy and syrupy in the mouth, with plenty more fruit, some caramel and a dry finish. Fine.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2012
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.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2012
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.

dogbomb (944) - ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
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.

Fin (7482) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
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

leaparsons (8102) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
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’?
