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.

Fin (9214) - 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

MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2013
(bottle) Hazy, golden colour with a big and blond foamy head. Yeast-spicy and herbal, slightly grassy hoppy aroma with delicately fruity spots, hints of iodine and a strawy malty touch. Bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a modest carbonation. Delicately bready malty base with drying herbal hops from the beginning, lingering into the bitter and discreetly sweet malty finish with a dangerously muted alcoholic strength. Nice try as a hoppy & pale strong Ale, but the term “Stout” is a bit irritating. 26.IX.13

DuffMan (8940) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy lemony yellow with a generous white head that collapses to chunky flotsam and leaves messy lace. Aroma is white grapefruit, guava, and conifer that leans toward juniper. Fresh white grapefruit, guava, gooseberries (lots of gooseberries actually), herbal and woody accents. Nice malt structure here too. Intensely bitter finish. It is idiotic to call this a white stout when it is most evocative of a Belgian style IPA. A fantastic beer nonetheless.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
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

sebletitje (8789) - 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.

mR_fr0g (8056) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle at home split with Sarah from Beer Hawk. Slight hazed golden orange coloured pour with a lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly alcohol solvent, jammy fruit, grainy, grape, grain husks. Flavour is composed of strawberry jam, grape, grain husks, fruity esters, passion fruit. Not sure if this is a stout really. Palate is semi-sweet, moderate carbonation, medium bodied. Bit of a weird one. quite sweet.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, 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 (7686) - 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.
