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!

<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.

(08/2006. Draft). Too bad this beer isnít bigger than 4% ... it deserves to reach a fuller potential. Aromas are very light, though there are definitely some hops back in there. Appearance is a murky orange-amber that makes you think twice about delving in (a lot oí yeast in there, mother!). But the flavor is wonderful: full, malty, well-balanced with hints of citrus in there too. Overall, a much nicer quaff than one may have expected -- but then, as beer drinkers, we all know "donít judge a book by its cover!" Too bad its cominí in at 4% ... this would be GREAT at 5 or 5.5. But, at 4%, it is an easy drinker and a great session brew, showing again the UT brewers do a fine job with their restrictions.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Clear and bright amber body with a small, filmy beige head. Minimum hop aroma for a pale ale. Smells like caramel and dark bread crusts with significant toastiness. Flavor continues with the strong, toasted Munich malt qualities. Lightly oxidized, papery finish with substantial bitterness. Unfortunately, the character hops are dead here.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Smells pretty good. So is the tate. Not much hops to start, but it becomes pretty dry and hoppy at the end. Quite nice for a low alcohol APA.

Pours a medium amber orangish color. Aromas of mild malt and citrus hops. Nice hop flavor is balanced with a smooth malt taste. Good dry hop finish and aftertaste.
