On tap at Franklin's.

Pours a moderately-dark brown with a good off-white head and some light lacing. The nose carries a bit of lightly-roasted malt and chocolate. Some very light hops. Not too complex, but that's not something I'm looking for with this style. Some light malt and a faint nuttiness. Light body and good carbonation. Simple and easy-drinking.

Thanks to Deuane for sharing a growler on 12/26/10.

A - Emerged from the growler as a dark walnut brown liquid with deep burgundy hues and a thin beige head that reduced to wispy strands of retention and spotty lacing.

S - Malty nose with bread, toffee and caramel attributes paired with light hops, a hint of spice and mild licorice notes.

T - Typical bitter/mild ale flavor with lots of malty sweetness by way of toffee and caramel notes, as well as a twist of slight licorice. Hop presence is pretty subdued, but there is a hint of spiciness in the mix, which offers some deviation from the malty aspect of this brew.

M - Light bodied with mild carbonation and a watery texture. Finishes sweet with a tinge of bitterness and faint metallic bite on the palate.

D - Pretty decent dark bitter with a malty character overall. Mouthfeel wasn't stellar, but overall this wasn't a bad effort.

On tap at the brewpub today,

Very dark brown with mahogany highlights. Dense, creamy brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing. The nose is great. Mild hops, leafy and mildly earthy, along with a delicate malt char, rich and complex with coffee and cocoa. Dry and roasty, there's not much yeast. I usually expect a little fruity yeast character in an English beer.

The palate opens moderately roasty with a little caramel, coffee and cocoa and a definite hop char, especially on the finish with a little earth and leaf. Bitterness is low. Dry, roasty finish. Light in body but never watery, the mid-palate is great. Carbonation is a little high, but otherwise, this is excellent. Almost a cross between an English porter and a schwarzbier. The mild grainy acidity that's present on the finish further heightens the comparison to a porter. At $3.50 for a pint during happy hour, this 4% beer is very drinkable.

New beer from Franklin's -- from the brewer's description " English Dark Milds can be some of the most interesting and satisfying of session beers. They can have a rich and complex malt depth while still have a light and refreshing body. Stonehenge is no different with its deep ruby brown color accented by roasted malt lending a touch reminiscent of coffee and sweet finish."

Beer served on tap. Its brown and almost reddish / ruby at the corner, clear and lowly carbonated.

Aroma is caramel and kind of weak. It smells nice but the volume is a little low.

Beer is light in body and sweet but not too sweet. It finishes nicely and is really well balanced overall. Nice caramel, mild toffee, mild coffee, mild roast. Easy drinking no aftertaste, its a good beer.
