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!

tap at McStiff’s - This brew has a pleasant citrus hop aroma. It’s moderately hopped with citrus and caramel character. This medium bodied brew with some lingering bitterness in the finish is, IMO, better than the Wyld EPA I had right before it.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Initial spiced bread and hops, earthy caramel background. Clear dark amber color. Bittersweet bread flavor. Some toasty barley. Crisp start, soft papery finish. Too dark to be a pale ale. Beer of choice for the slopes.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from whole foods SLC. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Not much of the nose. Very malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Prefer my Pale Ales brewed to style.

Serving: from tap at Centro Woodfired Pizzeria. Aroma: none detected. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white, initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter, moderate cat piss-like hoppy initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good. Unique flavor.

This beer is not a notable example of an American Pale Ale; however it hits English Best Bitter on the head starting with its burnt sugar aroma to its toffee malt flavor balanced with a nice clean hop note. Finishes semi-sweet.
