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.

leaparsons (10137) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Bottle. Golden with a large off white foam. Aromas are white wine and gooseberry with lime. Kiwi with lemon and dusty yeast. Biscuit base malts with melon and spicy hops. Flavours are lemon and lime with dry biscuit malts. Floral with gooseberry and more hints of lime. Dry and fruity to finish with peppery alcohol. Decent but why claim it is a stout?

Fin (9947) - 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. Im 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

allmyvinyl (9842) - 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

DuffMan (9755) - 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.

MoritzF (9582) - 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

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2012
50cl bottle from Beer City, BB 04/2014. Dore/orange, col blanc. Arme est houblonn et citronn en agrumes qui sont bien en avant. En bouche, herbac et amer fini sur une pointe de malt choco, palais citronn et pic; agrumes et pamplemousse allant plus vers une petite APA anglaise, sur la fin je note une pointe pice rappelant le cdre et une certaine brasserie de Floride.

jmgreenuk (8440) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich malt alcoholic woody resin hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. More like a bubbly Belgian strong ale.
