On tap at Sundance. Poured into a pint glass.

Pouring a pretty dark amber, Cutthroat Pale is all about the malt. Lots of caramel malts with a slight roastiness in the background, the flavor would suggest a higher ABV if it weren't so watery in the mouth.

A very drinkable session ale that seems to lack a unique character, but not a bad beer for sitting by the BBQ or watching a game.

12 oz bottle brought back from Utah by my girlfriend.
A-Clear Dark Amber, 1 inch head that dissipated quickly, Looks good
S-Grassy hoppy, slightly bready
T-Tangy flavor, watery, mild malt with slight roast flavor, mildly grainy
M-Thin and light in mouth
D-Nothing stopping me from drinking more but nothing jumping out at me making me want more.

Decent beer-girlfriend had on tap with a slice of pizza and was a fan, but maybe doesn't stand alone so well.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is malty with some fruit notes. The flavor is malty and grainy with a good touch of hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Good color, good clarity, lace etc. . . aroma was lacking, not back, just nothing.

Taste, a standard pale. Refreshing, but will seem pedestrian to a hophead (or big fan of their BW like I am). Good caramel, not enough hops. Maintains a light play on the tongue though, doesn't acquire that earthy heavy wood feel that some APAs will when they aren't heavily/appropriately hopped.

Easy to drink, won't be offensive to anyone, just won't be something exquisite at any time either.

On my trip across this fine land of ours I made my way through the beautiful state of Utah. Utah is not known for their beer, quite the opposite. When I saw a couple local singles in the fridge of the gas station I stopped at, I figured I give them a go.

This pours a yellow straw color. The aroma is part caramel, part wheatfield and slightly fruity with some citrus. Flavorwise, it has some subtle hops with some cereal oat. It''s a bit watery - my guess in complying with Utah's ABV% regulations.

It's likely one of the best beers you can get in Utah, but that's not saying too much.

Had a nice draft pint in the hotel bar during a recent stay in Park City. It was served way too cold, but you could still tell that this was a decent brew all the way around. Really got tasty as it warmed.

Generous head, even on a chilled glass (unfortunately). Inviting copper, gold and yellow hues.

Scent and taste had a nice base of caramel malt, bready and biscuity, and a nice floral top layer. Also a note of spices on the nose.

Smooth and easy drinking. Again, mine was served far too cold (and I didn't have time to wait for it to warm too much), so my judgement here might be a little off. Still had a nice medium to light bodied feel, slightly creamy. Appropriately bitter for the style. Pretty good.

Would have loved to have had another one (or the Kolsch they also had on tap). Definitely something to look for when in the beer badlands of Utah.

Tried a bottle at the Delta Crown Room in the SLC airprot. Pours a dark amber without much head. Nose is balanced between floral, bitter hops and a some light sweet malt. Palate is equally balanced, with the hops becoming more pronounced on the finish along with a subtle underlying smokiness. Medium body holds flavor well. Decent, but unremarkable.

Review dated 1/9/2009, from 12oz bottle.

Bottle in Park City. Amber color with decent white head. Nice hop aroma, somewhat citrusy. The flavor has caramel malt and citrusy hops. Medium-bodied, maybe a little more watery than I’d like, but hey...you know...Utah, man.

This beer seems to be all over Utah but instead of it being like a craft beer it seems more like a macrobrew in quality and taste. It has a decent clarity and gold color but upon opening the bottle up and pouring it the head was somewhat weak and the aroma smelled a tad skunky. Where it really seemed to fall flat was the taste. It had little character and drinkability was limited to one bottle. The malt came through but it had a soapy aftertaste.

when I first tried cutthroat it wasn't as appealing at first as it now is as far as taste goes. it took me a couple tries to get used to the taste it was a little on the bitter side hade a citrus taste to it . Great amber looks with a white head on it. Nice lacing down the sides. However Cutthroat is now at the top of my drinking lists for this month

I got this beer at a gas station in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Appearance- amber color

Smell- hops

Taste- hops, malt, nice flavor

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought this was a pretty good beer. Good session beer only 4% alcohol, I thought it was worth drinking again.
