750ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Golden yellow colour, big foamy head. Cereal biscuit & tropical fruit aroma. flowery biscuit citrus flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not sure about the "blonde stout" or English Strong Ale classification. It is more like a Belgian Blonde. Nonetheless it is still a good beer. fonefan (49295) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2012

Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, citrusy, pleasant stuff. Flavour is fruity, floral, citrusy and quite dry notes. Pleasant citrusy aftertaste.
As most of the ratings suggest, everyone gets stuck on the name. That creates confusion and prevents you from trying to appreciate the beer for what it is. This is not a stout in nearly any sense. It’s a strong ale, perhaps. Golden with a head of large-form bubbles. Sweet, some citrus, the abv comes through in the flavor. And as the alcohol kicks in in the mid-palate, a strong medicinal note emerges, with a sickly sweet finish. Not very good at all.

Gravity at SRAF. Pale yellow colour, thin white bubbles. Lemon meringue pie, hint of white chocolate, light apricot, light fruitcake spice on the nose. Velvety smooth, lemon and vanillla, custard, resinous hops, crramy and sweet but still light. Dessert wine esque. Nice light bitterness on the finish. Really really interesting, I’m unconvinced by the whole "white stout" fad, but this is definitely my favourite of the ones I’ve had. Great beer. rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Opening with a resounding pop of the swing top bottle, the immediate note is one of zest, Lemon or Orange, which unfortunately reminded me of some cleaning products. In the mouth the beer is initially very sweet so doesn’t give many clues to the alcohol of the beer. It has a rather vegetal quality on the finish, with the coriander seed adding an earthy spice rather than the more floral notes one would get from a coriander leaf. Initially I though this had little to offer a first, but it grew on me. Not a stout, but worth a punt. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUN 25, 2012
25 June 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is lemony and yeasty. Thin body and slightly fizzy. Really sweet, moderate alcohol, lemon meringue.

[750ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Launch of Dr Hornbook in 750ml swingtop bottles. Brilliantly clear lemon yellow beer, with a very quick-dispersing head. Leaves only a lacing almost immediately, together with rising carbonation. Sweet banana and toffee aroma – banoffee? Surprisingly thin for a 7%er, but it’s very smooth in terms of mouthfeel, and hides the alcohol really well. On the flavour - orange, honey, glucose and maybe some of the added coriander come out. It’s pretty complex, and would no doubt be great after sitting for a couple of months (was only bottled seven days ago). All told, a really nice beer
