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.

Beer5000 (5866) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Delirium, Brussel. Clear, deep golden body with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma has malt, bread and grassy hops. Flavor is smooth malty, biscuit, toast, light fruity and medium bitterness. Medium body with sweet and bitter aftertaste. Decent, but I don’t really find anything close to a stout here. Like a strong golden British ale with good bitterness.

reebtogi (5594) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
500ml bottle pours golden in color with a 2 and a half finger white head that retains well and eventually leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is flowery and earthy with some cereal grains. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with a generous amount of carbonation leaving a nice sensation on the palate. A nicely balanced and tasty English strong ale that is recommended to try, but is certainly not a stout in the current world of beers.

altonbrownd (5546) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle from malting pot. Clear gold body w puffy head. Nose is malty, wheat with hops. Taste is sweet, bitter and citrus gets spicier and warmer in the finish. Then bitter again. Enjoyable.

jookos (5401) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Light orange, hazy. Nose is like a amarillo/cascade apa: peach, citrus, resins, floral tones. Body is bitter and a bit thinnish, dry. Harsh. Some caramel, yeast residue, staleness. I presume this is a flovery apa-style ipa. A bit hard, not in balance.

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - 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.

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle at home form Filrd, cheers! Pours pale honey blonde with sweet malt aroma with redcurrants. Throws up a fluffy cream head but soon dissipates. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation, sweet custard malt and quite high residual sugar. Fair amount of dry bitterness in finish but the high sweetness is just a bit off-putting.

Holmen1 (4754) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2016 Fra flaske på Cardnaltreff sep-13: mye såpeskum her! Gylden strågul. Lite humlearoma, men snev av alkohol. Bitterheten balanserer alkoholsødmen og -styrken, men denne ølen mangler egensmak. NondeScript ville kanskje en engelskmann sagt. "Massive floral and resinous caracter" iflg bryggeriets egenmelding. Tørr ettersmak. Kanskje verdt et nytt forsøk. Nytt forsøk på Mi2, Cardinal feb-16: lett syrlig, frisk og god. Den fine bitterheten er preget av appelsinmarmelade og mandler. Opp fra 2.7 til 3.2

Samo Pivo, Belgrade. Bad problems with foam on this keg. Hazy white-yellow, tall foam. Sweet plum aroma, body is very creamy and rich and a bit shocking for the color. Sweet plum sake. Intriguing, not bad, but also not for me.
