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!

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.

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.

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2016
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.

vyvvy (5857) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2016
The beer pours reddish bronze with a beige head. The aroma has earthy hops, toasted malt, pine and a bit of berries. It has a fairly light crisp body with mild semi sharp carbonation. The taste starts with dry woodiness, pine, crackers and mild fruit. The finish is quite dry and has lots of dried grass. Good.
