COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Cutthroat Trout is the state fish of Utah and believed to be named after Cutthroat Pale Ale, Utahís most popular craft brewed beer. (Ok, it is the other way around.) Uintaís flagship beer, Cutthroat Pale Ale is a traditional Northwest American Style Pale Ale. The Cutthroat trout is a species of freshwater fish native to western North America, and more specifically to the Great Basin and Rocky Mountain regions. The Bonneville Cutthroat trout is a subspecies, native to Utah and named after Lake Bonneville, a prehistoric pluvial lake that covered much of present day Utah. The Great Salt Lake and Utah Lake are two remnants of Lake Bonneville. Today, Cutthroat trout is the game fish of the west and Cutthroat Pale Ale the catch of the day!

Tap/Bottle. Considering that they are gagged by this stupid 3.2% crap they did a good job. Nice aromas of grapefruit and hops. Flavor has a nice hoppy bitterness but also some malts and fruit. The go to beer for me in Utah together with the Polygamy porter.

Very approachable pale ale. Great copper/amber pour. Good contrast of malt and hops thatíll keep you interested through the beginning of the night. Gets fruitier the deeper you get. To scottyw, from Palm Beach, Florida. They didnít sneak a 4% ABV beer into Utah. Utahís limit is set by weight and not volume. The limit is 3.2% Alcohol by Weight (ABW)... which makes this beer 4% alcohol by volume and legal to sell everywhere in Utah. Itís what you get when non-drinkers make laws for those who do, I guess.

Nothing really special, except somehow they sneak a 4% ABV beer into Utah. Nice appearance, decent aroma including light hops and slight citrus (grapefruit). I would call this a "light pale ale."

A nice bitter roasted flavor with a mildly fruity finish. A nice accompaniment to blackened fish or chicken dishes. Reminds me of Red Hook ESB.

Tap at Brian Head while snowboarding. Pours a deep copper color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malts, sweet malt, caramel, some citrus hops. Taste of some citrus, dark fruits, reminded me of an amber with some hop bite at the end. It was enjoyable and warming.

On Tap, in a bar, at the Salt Lake City Airport(Oct. 9th,2006). Amber color. Smell of malt, hops, hints of citrus, flowers and some caramel. Tastes of hops, orange peal, bread, malt, caramel and a nice, long lasting bitterness at the end.

This beer not only embodies what a great session beer should be, it captures the essence of a great English Bitter. Stylistic or not, this beer is incredibly approachable and one that balances a great malt profile with carefully orchestrated hops. Congratulations to Unita for creating such a great beer under Utah brewing limitations.

<12 oz. bottle via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a clear amber color with an average size off white head. Aroma is light hops. Nice lacing. Has a toasted caramel malt flavor with a nice hop background. Thin palate. Light to medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Richard.

Body is amber with not much of a head. Aroma is a decent amount of hops, some caramel. Taste is fairly hoppy, with the caramel, a bit watery, but itís not horrible, rating is a bit higher then it probably should be.

Very attractive color; an orange/copper color. Aroma mostly of malt. Taste was rather poor in my opinion. One of my least favorite pale aleís tried thus far.
