Based on the Mild Ales made popular in England, this brown ale is Mountain Sunís first true session beer. The slightly sweet and nutty caramel malt profile is balanced by earthy British hops. At under 4% ABV, this traditional ale provides a full flavor without a sedative effect.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vine St. After the bartender told me it was a low alcohol session beer I had to order it. Dark reddish-brown with a very grainy smell, almost reminded me of the purina factory here in Denver. The flavor was kind of bland but did have a decent malt flavor. The drinkability was pretty good because the abv was so low. Iíd rather have a low alcohol hop monster than this but it was a good effort at a style I never see much of.
Serving type: on-tap

sample at Mountain Sun on 4/9/10... deep copper pour with a small white head... lacking in aroma... very subtle bitter nose... light body which is water like... some caramel malt lingering in there... light finish... way to light for me.

southern sun/ medium dark toast/brown colored body. spicy and rough rye and sandpaper barley malt. heavily toasted caramel malt and overly caustic malt edges; deplorable malt texture. extremely unpolished and hinting at an uncontrollable or exceedingly high fermentation temperature - they should not have allowed this beer to be served.
