Poured into a standard American pint glass.

A-Pours a borderline amber brown to medium amber with a thick off-white 2 finger head. The head stuck around for sometime and it left some sticky lace on the glass. The head eventually dissipated into a bubbly ring around the edges. It looks good!

S-Dominant malt character, with some citrus undertones. Not too much in the smell.

T- It's light, crisp, and flavorful for a pale ale. The caramel-toasty malt balanced the bitter hops in the aftertaste. For a lighter pale ale, it is quite balanced. There were also some light citrus notes that complemented the hops.

M-Light bodied beer with a full-bodied feel. Moderate carbonated feel, crisp and clean. A bit watery, but that is to be expected in Utah.

Overall, if your visiting the Rockies and you happen to be in SLC, try this ubiquitous beer. It is sold just about everywhere. It is one the best beers in the 4% ABV zone. It's a great brew for any time of the year, sessionable for summer/fall, drinkable in the spring, and warm in the winter.

I purchased this beer in Beaver UT while on the way to GABF.

A: This beer pours a deep amber with 1 finger very light amber head. The head did last an abnormally long time however, a left a good amount of lacing down the glass.
S: Nice aroma and flavor of caramel malt with a hint of citrus or British hop flavors.
T: Light notes of sweet caramel malt and a touch of citrus hops. Not bad for a low ABV easy drinking beer. Good session beer for sure.
M: Somewhat light body with a lightly slick but fairly watery mouthfeel. Carbonation is soft enough.
O: This beer is a good session beer with good flavor, low ABV, and not heavy at all.

Beer #5 in the great Utah Brew Hunt.

A very mild pale ale with minimal hop tones and influence. Had a sweet tone on there that seemed a bit much. The whole beer strikes me as less than memorable, especially in comparison to some of the other more heavy hitters that I had before and after this one.

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.

This is a Utah favorite. This is definitely my favorite brew from the Rocky mountains and the Great Basin :) Pours amber, copper head, taste of dry hops, and caramel malt. Great and if I had to drink one beer for the rest of my life this would definitely be it. Try it next time your in Utah!!!
