Abstract: We study a mountain pass characterization of least energy solutions of the following nonlinear scalar field equation in $\mathbf{R}^N$:

\begin{displaymath}-\Delta u = g(u),\, u \in H^1(\mathbf{R}^N), \end{displaymath}

where $N\geq 2$. Without the assumption of the monotonicity of $t\mapsto \frac{g(t)}{t}$, we show that the mountain pass value gives the least energy level.
