COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Patterned after the rich, smooth, malty ales of Scotland, Stone’s Throw is dominated by caramel toffee, toasty malt, hints of cocoa, residual honey sweetness and just enough hops to keep this rock on the button. The perfect brew for someone new to craft beer. Cheers, skip!

Theydon_Bois (8310) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Can at Chateau Jackl, big thanks to Jacquiline for State tick #46, 13/08/14. Amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is light butterscotch, toffee, bready vibes, dark fruit notes. Taste comprises bready malt, bread pudding, toffee, dark fruit notes, light vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style and definately the best beer I’ve ever had from North Dakota!!!

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Can via trade. Light brown with a small head. Strong caramel, a bit of peaty cocoa, light raspberry chocolate brownie. The taste is actually pretty nicely balanced. Toasted brown bread and caramel. Accents of peppery hops. Glazed donut sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice.

Leighton (10780) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Can shared at Casa Lowrey. Pours clear amber-gold with a foamy white head. The nose has toasty bred, caramel, toffee, dried fruits. Medium sweet flavor with brown bread, toasty caramel, light smoke. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, further bready malts and dry toffee, some currants, slight earth. Not bad.

Scopey (6718) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Can at Castle Lowrey. It pours deep with a decent beige head. The nose is soft, fruity, caramel, dried fruits, light smoke and light spice. The taste is brown bread, earthy, dried fruits, mild spice, wood and leather very dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not a whole lot to it, but alright.

eaglefan538 (2886) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 2, 2014
From can. Orangey brown pour. Aroma of cocoa and toasted notes and caramel. Flavor followed with bready and nutty and vegetable notes all in there. Meh. Pretty not good. Mouthfeel was light and thin and watery. Bad overall beer and of the supposed style.

Ericular (603) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a medium brown with quickly fading head leaving nothing left and no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, nutty with wheat bread and honey. Taste is mild roast, mild overall. Not offensive, but nothing noteworthy going on here.

kbudd19 (576) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2014
Can from Dresden, thanks buddy! Dark brown butterscotch pour, nice hue go creamy white head. Aroma, light malts, and aluminum. Taste, fairly carbonated, bready grains, bit of soapy aftertaste. Overall, not sure what they were going for here but this is a pretty tasteless brew (other than the soapy finish), down the drain she goes.

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
Can, tasting at Matt’s
Brown color with small head. Smell of caramel and corn. Weak, some caramel flavor, vegetables, low bitterness.

mcberko (6311) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out some honey sweetness and light caramel. Flavour brings out some nice DMS, tomato soup, vegetal notes, and light honey sweetness. Finish leaves almost nothing but carbonated water. Really weak and boring - not a disaster, but what’s the point of this. Not good.

On tap at JL Beers, Grand Forks. Sweet, nice palate. An enjoyable little beer. Quite nice.
