We BeerAdvocates often talk of our white whales/whalez/wales and I suppose that this CAN is one of my white buffaloes. Y'see, I first became aware of its existence when I scored a CAN of JP's A Capella Gluten-Free Beer for The CANQuest (tm) & realized that there were others in the series. I would still like to get the Hefeweizen & the Red Ale, but for now, I am happy to lay Casper to rest.

From the CAN: "Stand Apart"; "Adventurous brews with a twist"; "CANs [-] Infinitely recyclable".

I Crack!ed the CAN open & began a gentle Glug into the awaiting glass. I have to go to work later & I do not feel like cleaning up an inadvertent mess. The first thing of note was its color - instead of the usual inky blackness, it was actually solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity! Wow! I briefly had a finger of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head, but it faded quickly, perhaps due to the increasing heat & humidity of the day. Nose had an odd sweetness, like vanilla. In a Stout?!? Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, just above watery, but not by much. The taste was really different - crackery malt, vanilla and milk chocolate. It really put me in mind of a white chocolate-covered pretzel. Chew on THAT for a second! Man, it was just SO different! Here in Lancaster (Co.), PA, we have a LOT of pretzel manufacturers & people have their favorite producer, but most people are not fans of any sort of chocolate on their pretzels. Not me! I like the balance struck by the baked pretzel dough, the saltiness of the finished pretzel & the sweetness of the chocolate. I generally disdain sweets, but the salty doughiness helps to offset the sugary chocolate. Now, imagine that flavor combination in a beer. It was just SO different! Finish was in that twilight zone between semi-sweet & semi-dry. It was interesting, but also fulfilling. One was enough for me.

While there isn't really much written on the can or packaging about the make of the beer, I don't think this is actually a stout. At first smell, you do get similar notes of sweetness that you would from a vanilla porter, but it has the same bite going down as a lager, and I'm fairly certain it's a flavored lager. Doesn' t deserve to have the name "stout" on it's can, which is the confusing reason i purchased this when I saw it. Overall drinkable, but definitely not a stout alternative.

Soooo good. THIS is what a cream ale is all about. It literally tastes like a cream soda. Butterscotch, vanillia, amazingness. Must try it.

Pours hazy, light yellow. Foamy, short, white head that fades fast.

Smells sweet vanilla, malt, hints roast.

Tastes like cream soda. Interesting flavor. Too sweet for a beer but still good. Vanilla and light roast mostly. Finish is semi sweet vanilla. No linger. Lighter body and higher fizzy carbonation.

Wow! Very surprised I guess a stout doesn't have to be dark. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice thick white head. A nice sweet smell and an awesome yes white chocolate flavor. Good carbonation easy going down with no aftertaste. Will definitely buy

JP's Casper Nitro legitimately changed my life. From the moment I took my first sip, I have been seriously comtepmplating the meaning of life and whether or not the human existence should be dedicated to tasting the amazing flavor of JP's. Personally I believe that you have not lived until you have had a JP's Casper Nitro, and many others can corroborate this fact. Every night I cry for those who are less fortunate and do not have the means to drink JP's, and I pray that everyone may one day be able to drink JP's every day for the rest of their lives. This beer is that good, folks.

"White Stout", what a load of B.S. Its a solid yellow beer, low carbonation, little head and not a lot of lacing. It smells like vanilla cookie dough. It tastes like a cream ale with some vanilla hints. The key flavor of a stout is roasted barley, not a trace of that here. Mouthfeel is rather full and cloying. Pretty much garbage.

It tastes okay it's just a bit odd. The added flavors are most likely the culprit.
