COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Cutthroat Trout is the state fish of Utah and believed to be named after Cutthroat Pale Ale, Utah’s most popular craft brewed beer. (Ok, it is the other way around.) Uinta’s 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!

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Initial spiced bread and hops, earthy caramel background. Clear dark amber color. Bittersweet bread flavor. Some toasty barley. Crisp start, soft papery finish. Too dark to be a pale ale. Beer of choice for the slopes.

Bottle from whole foods SLC. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Not much of the nose. Very malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Prefer my Pale Ales brewed to style.

This beer is not a notable example of an American Pale Ale; however it hits English Best Bitter on the head starting with its burnt sugar aroma to its toffee malt flavor balanced with a nice clean hop note. Finishes semi-sweet.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Best before 5/16/13... Mostly clear darker amber orange color. Nice thin off white head, leaves good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Nice malt profile - good amount of caramel malt, some toasty, biscuity malt. Light spicy malt / hop. Little earthy hop, but this is much more malt forward, thankfully the malt profile is pretty interesting. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter, light spiciness. Pretty solid pale ale, especially considering how unfresh it is, and the light ABV. The complex malt profile carries it.

Pint poured at Gordon Biersch in Salt Lake City Airport. A light and crisp pale ale with mild caramel and pine flavors. Finish has some bitterness to it.

Friend brought this back for my from Utah, thanks John! The aroma is malty, caramel, cardboard, with a bit of hoppy grapefruit coming through. The flavour also starts out with solid malty caramel, grain, candied orange, grapefruit. Simple, solid, interesting, enjoyable, great session beer.
