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.

imdownthepub (11122) - 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 (141) - 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.

hay with a bit of whiskeyness, amber gold colour with a frothy white head, quite sweet with a slight citrus tang. basically just a strong bland pale ale then?

Bov (10123) - 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 (213) - 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 (704) - 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.

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.

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
