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!

This beer not only embodies what a great session beer should be, it captures the essence of a great English Bitter. Stylistic or not, this beer is incredibly approachable and one that balances a great malt profile with carefully orchestrated hops. Congratulations to Unita for creating such a great beer under Utah brewing limitations.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2007 Poured a rich ruby/amber color with a creamy off-white head. The nose was of toffee and caramel malts, but mostly citrusy, piney hops. Taste was toasty with big caramel notes. Generous amounts of cascade hops waft above to balance with nice floral and citrusy esters. The finish was again hoppy but with more citrusy zest. The hop profile is big but not overpowering. A top notch and very drinkable session pale ale.

Nice amber color. Had a cold so I couldn't smell any aroma. But the sweet hop flourish and biting finish was good despite the cold.

Very approachable pale ale. Great copper/amber pour. Good contrast of malt and hops that’ll keep you interested through the beginning of the night. Gets fruitier the deeper you get. To scottyw, from Palm Beach, Florida. They didn’t sneak a 4% ABV beer into Utah. Utah’s limit is set by weight and not volume. The limit is 3.2% Alcohol by Weight (ABW)... which makes this beer 4% alcohol by volume and legal to sell everywhere in Utah. It’s what you get when non-drinkers make laws for those who do, I guess.

Redish amber color. Very adequate pale ale in all respects. Not as good as Squatter’s Full Suspension - but better than most ales.

Uinta Brewing Co. puts out some of the best beers I’ve tasted. Which is no small feat considering the 3.2 restriction in Utah. Cuthroat is a great pale ale, very hoppy and very bitter. Be prepared for the hops to bite you back if you try this beer. The beer is a light amber color, with a creamy white head that leaves a trail of lace down the glass.

Originally reviewed: 5/11/09. This is one of the "smaller" beers that I’ve had, but it was also one of the best looking. This beer poured a deep copper gold with a billowing white head on top. Retention was superb, and there was a sticky, lacy mess all over the glass edge. Very nice. Smelled grassy and sour. Some hints of lemon in there on top of the grassy hops. Very tame beer right away, but as I continue to drink, this beer gets more hoppy and more enjoyable. Very well-balanced with plenty of biscuity malts in there, all mixing and jiving with the slight hoppy muscle. Drinkability is extremely high, as the ABV is very low. I could drink these all summer long. I was very pleasantly surprised by this "little" beer. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, but it showed me a thing or two...
