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. (270 characters)

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. (632 characters)

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. (402 characters)

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 (272 characters)

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. (658 characters)

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. (274 characters)

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. (294 characters)
