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.

thb (735) - Alberta, - JAN 24, 2013
Clear bright yellow with average lingering head. Citrus, orange, grapefruit, dough aromas, with some floral/tropical bits. Some earthy yeast. Taste runs the spectrum from a brisk, bitter opening before it warms up a bit to a rich, complex sweetness, bread, honey. Bitter, balanced finish. Alcohol rears its head a little too much. Like an amped up golden ale.

Bov (9979) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - pours a hazy dark blond beer under a persistent white foam leaving a beautiful lacework; aroma of honey and flowery hops; full-bodied, tasty and with a fair yet subtle carbonation, gently bitter, earthy and spicy hoppy finish with light fruity and honey reminiscence

weordie (204) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Pours a cloudy copper with a nice, thick, foamy white head. Aroma of caramel and grass. Taste is strong of grass with a bitter aftertaste. A nice strong beer, not what I expected at all really.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
I was expecting this to be a pale beer that tasted like a stout, although it is explained on the bottle that it is not that. Bottle - golden with a sizeable frothy white head which stays around a good long time. Aroma of grass and caramel malt. Taste of grass, passion fruit, pineapple and some deep caramel malt. Medium bitterness and nice sweetness to finish. Medium body, high carbonation. I very much enjoyed this - full of loads of grassy hops and rich malts.

gunnfryd (11587) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, coffee, yeast. Flavour is fruit, malt, hop, coffee, grass, herbs, yeast. Medium body. OK beer.

yngwie (14630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle, at Cardinal. A lightly unclear, golden colored beer with a finger-thick white head. Pale malts, some fruityness and a touch of yeast in the aroma. Some herbs and grass too. Pale malts and fruityness in the flavor, it’s not too sweet, the bitterness is suitable, and there’s also a grassy touch in the flavor. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish, a tad much on the malty side perhaps. Anyway, it’s a pretty decent one, but not the kind of beer I feel an urge to repeat. 140726

Sebilinz (695) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden body with white head. Aroma is fruity with some sour hints and some alcohol. Taste is mild alcohol with malts some hints of yeast. Aftertaste is bitter with some alcohol and malty sweetness. Nice one.

Cimbasso (320) - - DEC 14, 2014
Clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Rich, boozy aroma. The taste is a little like a Belgian Strong Ale, with hints of apple and hazelnuts. Good bitterness. A very classy beer with rich flavours.

AshtonMcCobb (3291) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Appearance - golden with a thin fluffy head. Nose - light pine, custard (maybe funky). Taste - dry biscuits, green apples. Palate - medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a dry finish. Overall - this is gnarly and not very generous, considering the alcohol.

500ml bottle from the brewery online shop, shared ashtonmccobb. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas are cheesy hops, resin. Taste is green apples, chewy hop resin, booze hit. Finishes bitter. Nice, but gnarly. Bit green

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask at GBBF 2012. Poured a clear, deep golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of fruity aroma, with some grassy hop and strong malt notes. Smooth malty flavour, with tinned fruits and some bread. Finish was bitter resin, passionfruit and caramel.
