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 single can as Uinta Pale Ale, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Clear amber appearance with a frothy off-white head that eventually diminishes to a thin veil with light lacing. Aroma of toasted grain, earthy hops and a hint of resin. Similar flavor, grainy malts with mild hop bitterness. Light body with a crisp feel and ample carbonation. Pretty easy to drink but kind of boring overall. (Best before 05/13/16)

As "Uinta Pale Ale" with a drink by date of 5/7/16; from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons). Aroma: Caramel and lightly toasted malts balanced by a fruity/berry like hop character. Appearance: Pours a solid copper with soft carbonation holding up a sticky skin of bone coloured head. Flavor: Toasty malt undercurrent throughout with dry floral hopping initially; the hops take on a berry tea component more towards the fruity finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Obviously a recipe that’s been around for quite awhile, and while I’m all for appreciating the quality beers of the past, there are some beers best left there. This pale ale may be one of them.

What can I say, I love draft beer. On a short layover in Salt Lake City I ordered a Cutthroat. Keep in mind that Utah has session laws that prohibit tap beer from being over 4% alcohol. In the Pacific Northwest, or anywhere else for that matter, this would possibly be considered a light, watery beer. That being considered, I was pleasantly impressed with the overall fullness of this beer. It had the maltiness and mouthfeel of a solid micro beer. I ended up tasting a few other beers made in Utah and was impressed by how balanced most of them were considering the lower alcohol. Anyone could craft a decent 6-7% beer. Making a decent one under 4% is impressive.

Bottle: Clear, dark amber with a foamy beige head. Light caramel, bread-heel scent. Taste is a bit watery, caramel malt, bready ...... Very light......just ok, not memorable. No discernible trout flavor or aroma.......sorry, just had to.

355ml can. This is now just called pale ale i believe, feel free to move the rating. It is diacetyl-ridden. Comes off way more as a toffee like bitter or somethign like that than a pale.

Pour is a dark brown with a large white head. Aroma is a mild sweet malt with almost no hop presence. Flavor is pretty much all malt with again no hops showing up at all. This was way too light all around.
