Wikipedia Article About White miso on Wikipedia
White miso is called shiro as well (白) - rice, sweet white, fresh
White miso is not really white, but more yellow. It is made from soybeans that have been fermented with a large percentage of rice. The actual resulting color can range from white to light beige, and the miso has a definite sweet taste. It's best used in condiments like mayo or salad dressings, or in light sauces.
