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.

It is easy to brew a strong beer by adding sugar to the copper. I do not understand the White Stout description of this beer. The taste is grapefruit with prickly carbonation on the roof of the mouth. I much prefer Durham Magus which at 3.8% abv is a superior beer.

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.

Wow. What a revelation! A white stout? It only has hints of stout and looks nothing like a traditional stout being golden and extremely lively. Very tasty but a bit too sharp.

Mich interessierte sofort das White Stout. Bis dahin habe ich noch nie von White Stout gehört, allerdings fand ich die Idee toll, ein Bier aufleben zu lassen, das den Ursprung des Stout-Bieres wiederbelebt. Denn es war ursprünglich die Bezeichnung für starkes Bier. Ich bin immer begeistert von den feinen Schaumporen der Stouts, allerdings fällt der Schaum beim White Stout schnell zusammen. Es riecht sehr alkoholisch, bananig und buttrig. Beim ersten Trinken fällt auf, dass dieses Bier stechend nach Alkohol schmeckt, ein bisschen nach Vanille und trotzdem unangenehm. Es ist sehr hoch vergorgen und enthält kaum Süsse. Die anfängliche Begeisterung dieses White Stouts verflog leider zu schnell.
