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.

Pours a dark orange color, some carbonation, small head, nice lacing throughout. Scents of sweet hops. The taste is hoppy with a little bitter end in the aftertaste. Medium body. Very drinkable, makes a great session brew. Have not had that many Uinta Brewery stuff so far.

Pours an dark orange-red color with lots of bubbles streaming up and a creamy, tall, sticky off-white head. Good lacing.

A nice fresh, hoppy nose.

Taste: not much. Some grainy maltiness followed by woody, piney hops. Very clean finish (i.e., not much taste in the finish), with some grain husk showing up.

This is not a good beer. Very watery, very little flavor and what flavor there is isn't very pleasant. This tastes like water flavored to taste like an APA. I'm surprised this beer has gotten such high marks.

Had the Cutthroat Pale Ale at the Hungry Moose in Park City.

Had a dark amber-copper color. Smelled like a typical APA. Good smell though, definitely some hops in there. The taste was decent. Maybe a little watered-down. Needed some more hops. Good mouthfeel though and easy to drink. Overall, a pretty good 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.

This beer poured a golden color with hues of yellow interlaced. One finger of head fell to top off the beer nicely. The nose was a light grapefruit hop with a touch of light caramel maltyness, though overall, a touch light. The flavor has some good hop lingering around a caramel base. A nice flavor. The body could use just a hint more in there to give it the thickness I want in a beer. Overall, this one drinks very easily and smooth. A good offering from Uinta.

Big disorganized froth flails about this dark red copper brew. Smells strongly dry yet rich cereals, like oats.

Taste, too, is toasty oats and rich, dry cereals, with some moments of hop dryness. Light body and carbonation, reasonable drinkable. Not wildly exciting.

Sampled from a 12 ounce brown bottle purchased straight from the brewery. Bottle carries a best buy date marked as "August" Beer's listed content is 4%

Aroma is toasted malt with a highlight of a spicy hop aroma.cutting through a sweeter impression.

Flavor is brisk with a CO2 enhanced hop bitterness riding all over a medium malt body with just a few toasted caramel notes to it before it takes over the finish and holds on till a growing aggressive mineral character dries the tongue completely out and makes you hunt down the next ship.

All in all a good light weight pale ale. I'd prefer it with a smaller mineral load.

A rather good session ale, however, I still prefer Uinta's stronger version, Angler's Pale Ale. Whatever. This version, 4%, pours a rich amber with a creamy off-white head. Smell is of slight toffee malts, but mostly spicy, piney hops. Taste is much the same. The hops are a little overpowering, so a little more malt would help alot, but that's why there is Angler's. A tad slight on the body as well.

Dark Brown color. Small head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A full bodied pale ale. Malty and very hoppy. Big bold flavor. Caramelized slightly sweet malts and very spicy hops. Good taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

I, like many people here in the NW were under the impression that Utah was a vast wasteland of cheap flimsy beer. I have been enjoying a couple of 6-packs that a customer had sent back with his sister and my opinion is quickly changing. The ones I have tried (barring the Polygamy porter) have benn rock solid beer that has held quite true to style. This Cut Throat Pale is no exception. Very well balanced, good deep copper color. The head could have been a little better but the flavor was great and not over hopped for a pale. The judicious use of Cascade hops made for more of the floral notes instead of the citrus/grapefruit flavor. Well done pale ale.

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.

Copper hue, thick head, attractive lace. Dry - hopped Cascade nose, along with light yeast fruitiness in aroma. The toasty malt flavors are accompanied by a firm hop bitternss. Medium bodied for a pale. Citrusy hop flavor. Dry, crisp flavor. An above average & drinkable session pale ale.
