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!

12 oz bottle. Pretty good pale. Has a little spiciness to it. Nice amount of hop, but not overbearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ober (2807) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2012
A clear amber colored beer, with a thick foamy off white head. The aroma of malts and fruits like orange and mango. The taste is fruity, some malt with notes of bitter hop. A little watery. The aftertaste is sweet with bitter.

The aroma is a citrus spice malt. Pours a dark reddish brown with off white head with descent retention leaving a descent lacing. Mild carbonation. Tast is a citrus spice Carmel very clean and medium body. Overall one of the better utah beers I have had. I could drink this all the time.

Hardly any smell. Sheffields called it a honey ale which made it hard to locate. Decent boring tasting lager. Nothing good or bad to say ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Originally reviewed: 5/11/09. This is one of the "smaller" beers that I’ve had, but it was also one of the best looking. This beer poured a deep copper gold with a billowing white head on top. Retention was superb, and there was a sticky, lacy mess all over the glass edge. Very nice. Smelled grassy and sour. Some hints of lemon in there on top of the grassy hops. Very tame beer right away, but as I continue to drink, this beer gets more hoppy and more enjoyable. Very well-balanced with plenty of biscuity malts in there, all mixing and jiving with the slight hoppy muscle. Drinkability is extremely high, as the ABV is very low. I could drink these all summer long. I was very pleasantly surprised by this "little" beer. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, but it showed me a thing or two...

BlackHaddock (3514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2012
12 Fl Oz bottle, drank outside Bryce Canyon on 6th May 2010. The bottle was obtained (along with some other choice brews) at Ruby’s Inn general store. The beer was poured into my plastic toothbrush tumbler, it is all I had to use in the motel. The beer seemed a whole lot better than the on-tap version I’d had a couple of days earlier outside Zion NP in Springdale. The pale amber body seemed thicker and richer to look at and the off-white head stayed longer. The aroma was hoppy and interesting and the taste was a good blend of hops and malts unlike the ’wishy-washy’ brew from before. A lot better experience than the tap beer, missed the good food though, only had a salad with cheese this time. Also had an on-tap one: n tap in Oscar’s, Springdale (outside Zion NP). An amber pint with a small/thin off-white head was brought to my table, it looked OK. The head left some lacing as I downed the beer. The beer had a mid-range (for the USA) hop bite both in its aroma and taste. It went well with my Sprimps and although the beer could have been sharper (cut throat, see what I did there?), I think the brewer has done a good job considering the handicap of keeping the beer below the 4%ABV Utah insists on.

Decent session pale ale. Good balance of sweet maltiness and bitterness. Nose is hoppy and color is clear red-brown ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
