Just plain good. As far as my personal tastes go it's nothing super exciting, but what it is? A good go to in my home town (state really!) when I'm stuck at a bar without any real good beers otherwise. It's a bit light, quite smooth, and has a nice taste to it. It's Fargo's flagship beer and it deserves to be, the simple fact almost no one I know hates it shows why it's managed to be good without being exciting.

A solid beer, overall, and one I regularly consume when in Fargo so I can have it on tap (this rating is a full point lower for the canned version, which is mediocre). However, it isn't really a Scottish Ale in the traditional sense. It has more in common with a typical amber ale--I've always though this was Fargo's effort to make something that tasted like Fat Tire. More toasty and biscuit-y than smoky and malty. Still, a good beer.

This is one of my favorite beers from Fargo Brewing. I'm sure i'm biased because it's made in my city, but when a bar or restaurant doesn't have anything new or exciting for me to try I always go back to a Stones Throw.

Sorry I don't have much discussion about the flavor right now as I don't have one in front of me to taste as I write.

Drinkable, but definitely not a good example of its style. Tastes a lot like Shiner Bock.

I drank this straight from a can while in a fishing boat. I purchased it north of Bemidji. This is good stuff! This is one of my favorite styles of beer. I'd never seen it in the Minneapolis area. I will seek it out when I go back there.

12 ounce can into pint glass, purchased at the brewery on 11/13/2015. Pours crystal clear deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, plum, apple, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malts; with light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, plum, apple, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, plum, apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malts; with light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/silky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very nice Scottish ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malts; and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering, and extremely well done for the style.
