On tap at Zion Lodge, Zion Canyon, Utah.

Appearance: Reddish brownish amber, clear, modest head. Served in a plastic glass.

Aroma: Lots of malty aromas married with a nice balancing of hops.

Taste: As in the aroma, a nice malty flavour with some chewy soft spiciness and a surprising amount of hop, giving some good bitterness. Tastes somewhat like a best bitter style with a north american freshness to it. Nice. You wouldn't guess that this is only 4% because of Utah state restrictions.

Mouthfeel: Medium, mostly remember it as refreshing because it was 38/100 degrees that day.

Drinkability: I'd have this again. An excellent example of how to get around the limitations of strength and still create a delicious beer.

This is my default session beer here in Salt Lake City. I'm finding a surprising number of local options here in this beer-strangled town, but I keep coming back to Cutthroat. This ale pours a deep, copperish red and has a nice, thick head. The taste, at least to me, is notably full and strong, with a really nice bitterness to it--but it can be too bitter for many. The beer's real strong point, however, is in its drinkability. You simply don't get sick of it. It continues to be a refreshing, interesting and livable taste all evening long.

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

Drank this at their brewery pub in Salt Lake. I really liked this beer. the Brew had great color in wonderful glass. The hops were just right and present in sufficient amount. Balanced pale ale results apparently from balanced malts and hops. Good finish.

This beer has a great copper hue.. A finger and a half of lacing.

The aroma is of pine notes and a bit of grain.

Nice firm hop bitterness, clean hoppy finish. Slight malt back ground. The hop bitterness lingers.

Mouth feel is great.

This beer is great on a hot summer day. This is one of my favorite pales out of salt lake.

I tried this brew on a recent trip to Salt Lake City. It’s a clear, golden-amber colored beer with a moderately sized white head. The aroma is of floral hops, with a nice backing of caramel and toasted malt. It’s a much better aroma than I expected. A little grassy, with some resiny, pine-like hops. The hops really stand out in the taste, which is refreshingly bitter. Slight, caramel sweetness up front. The finish is very clean, with a lingering grapefruit hop quality. This brew is very easy to drink, and would make an excellent session beer.

Picked up a sixer at Wal-Mart (UGH!) on huge sale at $5 a six pack. I couldn't pass it up . Stubby bottle, 10/13/2008 date on the bottle.

A: Light copper color with a cream head, not much retention. Crystal clear, very filtered beer. Excellent lacing on the glass.

S: Earthy hops, slight caramel malt bill, slight plastic smell, which is really odd, never noticed that before. Pretty standard pale ale smells, only a little lighter.

T: Follows the nose nicely, nice pale malt characteristic, and a light earthy hop flavor, lingering malty aftertaste, big time tea presence. Excellent light pale ale. Very well balanced, seems a little watered down, but not too bad.

M: Not as thin as one would expect for a 4% beer. Nice carbonation. Somewhat dry, clean finishing beer.

D: This is an excellent session beer. One of my favorites since moving to Utah. All around good flavors and low alcohol, have consumed many of these in one sitting. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a session brew.

This flag-ship pale ale exhibits an admirable copper color with a deep spicy floral aroma. The balance of flavors is created by combining a bold spicy hop character with a delicate, but not weak malt presence. I can see why this is the most popular beer from this brewery.
