Fargo Brewing Stone's Throw Review

Name: Fargo Brewing Stone's Throw
Style: Scottish Ale
ABV: 4.5%

It's been a few months since I've reviewed anything from Fargo Brewing, a brewery that opened its doors recently in Fargo, ND. For this review, I have their Stone's Throw Scottish Ale. With an ABV of 4.5%, this puts this smack dab in the middle of Session Ale territory.

Stone's Throw pours a clear dark brown color with no visible carbonation. The head is takes on a thin khaki colored appearance and some mild lacing.

The nose starts out with a fairly strong buttery biscuit scent, caramel & toffee maltiness,  light yeasts and some light roastiness. For a Scottish Ale, it has a bright sweet characteristic.

The flavor has a pronounced roasty flavor along with some chocolate maltiness, and a bit of mild bitter hoppiness at the end. The aftertaste consists of some mild bitter hoppiness and light chocolate maltiness.

For what it is, this is actually pretty good. The flavor profile is very robust and is a textbook example of how to do a session ale right. If you so happen to stumble upon this, be sure to check this out!

Fargo Brewing Stone's Throw - 8.5/10
