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!

Malty, sweet, caramel and nuts. A distinct hops comes through into the finish. Not horrible, not a standout.

Bottled. Not much aroma. The plate is full body and sticky. The big floral hop taste. Not much other than that.

I did not like this and I am a big fan of anything Uinta. Not hoppy enough, off flavors, almost like a pilsner, but not even a good one of those. I do not recommend this.

BB date of 11/05/16. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was an attractive glossy amber color with a nice transparency about it. A moderately thin white foamy head quickly dissipates to a cap just over the top of the beer. Thin ring of lacing clings to the sides decently. The aroma takes on the malts first, some caramel and toffee and seems to rub against a light tobacco edge. Grassy hops with a light touch of pine try to play but really stay in the background. The flavor brings the malt sweetness to the foreground and allows the hops to once again try and play in a bitter fashion, but really doesn’t. Malty to tobacco aftertaste with a quick crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides low enough to allow gentle stickiness. Overall, as a pale ale, well, it’s almost an English styled one due to how the aroma, flavor and feel plays out. Maybe again, nice to try, if anything.

Not bad, actually, I guess. Perhaps more a bit’o hops than less than malt? Long distance aftertastes though are memorable, so savor a few swallows and go fish.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear Ber with a thick, creamy beige head. Tastes like bitter grassy hops, musky straw, some corn, and some citrus. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like grassy hops, straw, some citrus, corn, and bread.
