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 (6734) - Kristiansand, - 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.

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2017
500ml bottle. Golden amber with a thin, frothy white head. Aroma of apples, distinct strong hoppiness, and grain. Blast of alcohol on the palate, along with bitter grains. Extremely fine carbonation; very smooth.

19Oracolo78 (225) - ITALY - MAR 11, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2017 Birra dal color giallo paglierino con riflessi dorati. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. All’ olfatto sentori di frutta, miele, caramello e una nota speziata. Al palato morbida con note di frutta sciroppata, mielata, con un finale speziato ed erbaceo. Nel finale rimane amara senza mai far sentire i suoi 7,2 gradi. Una birra stout (forte) che nonostante tale appellativo riesce a scendere giù molto velocemente. Una buona birra molto beverina.

rand (1820) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle 500 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Golden amber beer with a nice ivory head and active crackling. Fruity and spicy aromas, herbs and touch of honey. The taste is soft, honey-toffy, floral also, creamy with hints of herbs, grass and roasted, then dry with earty and resinous hop, trend IPA but with more honeyish sweetness.
