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.

snzcujo (282) - - NOV 14, 2012
Tasted from the bottle, bought @Dram shop, Sheffield, on 13/11/2012. Pours of slightly hazy golden color with a proper head. Aroma is big, having lots of caramel and lollipops. Taste is quite sweet upfront, lollipops&caramel again and unpleasantly tart in the end. The beer was quite warm and thus had a strong alcohol tone. Aftertaste is unfortunately awful, a bit sweet upfront, then tart with no bitterness. Not recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sulphursouls (40) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 4, 2014
This is a very pale, full bodied beer (using the famous Maris Otter malt and Columbus hops), which comes out very lively, rich and foamy and with a wonderful head. The smell is a sweet perfume, fruity hops with lightness. The taste is of hoppy floral bitterness, with only the lightest sweetness. It has a good body, is very easy drinking and hides its true strength. Great stuff.

berkshirejohn (4440) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
50cl bottle from the shop at the Hogs Back Brewery. A bright pale amber with a thin cream head; perfumed floral aroma with a trace of tropical fruit; full and lively in the mouth with mango and pineapple fruit and an immediate dryness; before a slowly building warm and biscuity finish. Impressive, and very different from most malt-led English Strong Ales.
