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!

beerbill (3274) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with bitbucket. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through to the end of the glass and left lace all the way to the end that held up very nicely. Pleasant aroma of malt, hops, and some faint nuttiness. The flavor is malt up front with some mild hops bitterness towards the finish. Some dryness at the finish as well. Pretty standard fair for an APA but enjoyable nonetheless.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Bottle (Thanks to my sister who got a bottle from Utah, which coincidently was the same week they legally began distributing in NY. Funny and true story!) Pours a deep rusty copper with near perfect clarity and a thin off white head. The aroma is Fresh toasted malts with a nutty hint and some mild caramel. The hops are very subdued, just giving an extremely subtle citrus note. Has a light feel on the palate, with a malt dominated flavor. Lots of toasted pale malts, a hint of mild caramel and a nutty character comes through when it warms. The hops are detectable, however they’re very subdued and seem restrained, only offering an orange note in the background. Not bad, it just needs more hop character.

Amber beer with attractive looking creamy to tan head. Aromas promising maltiness and tropical and slightly piney hops. Beautiful balance of caramelised malt and reassuring fruit/piney hops. An APA for any weather maybe.

Found this one bottled at a grocery store in Syracuse, Utah. Hazy, deep amber pour with a thick tan head, citrusy hope, pineapple nose, good hoppy character with a bit of smoke and bitter chocolate, pretty nice.

Bottled, thanks gws57! A crisp hoppy nose, decent hops and mild malt on palatte. Refreshing, nicely sippable.

Bottle, poured a deep amber color with fairly nice head. Smells of roasted malts, hops, and fruit. The taste is dominated by hops and sweet, roasted malts. The brew finishes with a lovely malted caramel flavor. One of the better pale ales I’ve tried, mostly because the flavor is dominated more by malts than hops, which I enjoy.

Ibrew2or3 (6530) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2008
12oz bottle (4% ABV) pours clear deep copper with thin off white to tan head. The mild aroma starts with spicy noble hops followed by sweet to crystal type malts. Like the aroma the taste begins with a quick sting of spicy hop bitterness. A solid roasty to sweet malty note quickly takes over and becomes more and more crystal and caramel as the taste progresses toward the finish. The experienced ends with the addition of a mild floral hop note. This beer seems light on the hops for the style but has plenty of malty goodness.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap a the Zion Pizza & Noodle Co, located in the heart of Springdale Utah, gateway to Zion National Park. Pours clear dark gold with a lacy white head. Medium body and light carbonation. Citrus and peach nose, and a soft peachy quality to the taste, which sits nicely beside the bread and citrus. A refreshing and super-sessionable beer for hot days.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2008
Foxy-amber with a yellowish head. Toffee and faraway hops, a bit nutty in character. Nutty again in the taste, bready, but with a watery finish, falling flat. Bit spritzy, but also a bit empty. Ho-hum, not really great.
