On Tap - Overall The Mountain Sun produces some mediocre beers at best in their general rotation IMO (They really do a good job on the stouts and the smaller batch stuff in all fairness).They never seem to be consistent,possibly to the constant rotation of brewers,don't know,

At any rate had the XXX tonight and it was really just an awful beer.
Most (and only) notable,the DMS that was present.

Enough said,really not worth a review of a beer that tastes like creamed corn...

kind of a weird pale ale. pours a golden yellow color mostly clear with an average white head on top. smells quite hoppy, definitely a big american pale. flavor is sharp hops up front followed by a mellowing pale malt roundness. nothing too distinct here, except that it feels much stronger than the typical pale ale. no abv was offered at the pub, but i would have to imagine this one being up over 7% somewhere. feel is fine, bubbly and crisp, with a lighter medium body. one knock against this one is that it got pretty gross as it warmed, losing all its carbonation, and taking on an unpleasant flavor. drink this one while its ice cold!

On tap at Vine Street Pub (& soon to be brewery) over lunch. Served in a pint glass.

A - A slightly hazy golden body with a 1/2 finger white head, decent retention and lacing throughout.

S - Earthy hop character, mild sweet malts, hints of spice.

T - Mild to medium bitterness with earthy, piney hop flavors. Mild sweetness with hints of the alcohol. Fairly straightforward.

M - Lighter end of medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

O - Solid brew, nothing spectacular. Still good. I'd order again
