Cut Throat Pale Ale

Cut Throat Pale Ale from Finch’s Beer Company, Chicago, IL, is a 5.6% ABV American Pale Ale, honey-colored, with peachy highlights that comes in a 4-pack of 16 oz. cans.  You can get it on tap too, but I did not.  It’s a bit hazy, and Cut Throat produces a single-layer splotchy head of random sized bubbles and truly artistic lacing.  There’s not a bit of carbonation visible, but it must be there.  The bouquet is hoppy with a good, sweet, malty backbone and just a hint of orange.  The hop initial bitterness is more pronounced than the bouquet would have you expect, but there is some balancing sweetness.  The salivary glands are definitely stimulated by Cut Throat, maybe because there is a note of sour green apple within.  The texture is a little thin, not watery, but just lacking a little body.  Overall an OK beer, but not one I would go out of my way for.

72/100 APA
