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.

sebletitje (8124) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.

downender (7253) - 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.

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

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2013
Big white head. Slightly hazy coppery body. Sugary floral aroma with herbal notes, fairly faint. Dry-sweet peppery dried fruit taste with licorice and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry fruity spicy peppery aftertaste with oily coriander notes. White stout? More like a Belgian trippel. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)
