Big white head. Slightly hazy coppery body. Sugary floral aroma with herbal notes, fairly faint. Dry-sweet peppery dried fruit taste with licorice and spice notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry fruity spicy peppery aftertaste with oily coriander notes. White stout? More like a Belgian trippel. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Aroma: fruity, some grain malts, citrus. Appearance: clear gold, large, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: fruity sweetness making room for some bitters quickly, citrus and grapefruit. Overall: quite a nice Strong Ale, nicely balanced. Pint at GBBF 2015, Kensington Olympia. jookos (7202) - 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 (7091) - 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. luttonm (7077) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2016
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.

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. berkshirejohn (6813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
50cl bottle from the shop at the Hogs Back Brewery. A bright pale amber with a thin cream head; perfumed floral aroma with a trace of tropical fruit; full and lively in the mouth with mango and pineapple fruit and an immediate dryness; before a slowly building warm and biscuity finish. Impressive, and very different from most malt-led English Strong Ales. Holmen1 (6745) - 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.

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.
