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!

Bottle. Amber pour, with an off white head. Malty, light, caramel, light citrus hops, bread, and watery. Decent for a 4% made for Utah beer.

Darwenus (809) - Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2016
This just isn’t anything special, Uinta has far, far better beer than this. This pale ale pours clear amber in color, the head fades quickly. The aroma is slight, but there is some cereal malt quality and a little yeast. The flavor is thin, dull, and watery. Beers like this make me appreciate what a friend we have in Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

shrubber85 (9999) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Toffee malt and woody orange peel aroma. Amber with moderate head. Lightly sweet toffee malt and mildly bitter hay/orange peel flavor. Medium body. Okay but kind of weak.

Lemke10 (948) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2016
This pours a medium amber color with a frothy beige head. The aroma is weak with some malts and touch of hops. The taste is a lot more bitter than I imagined. Decent depth to the taste but there are without a doubt much better pale ales on the market than this one. Finishes with a sweet yet bitter after taste.

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
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)

ContemplateBeer (1925) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 31, 2016
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.

On draft at Spacebar. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Bready aroma. Flavors of toast. Crisp finish.
