COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This malty lager is our most award-winning beer: it took gold, silver, and bronze medals at the Great American Beer Festival from 2006 to 2010. Cutlass Amber has a toasted, biscuity character. The slight sweetness comes from Crystal malt. Vienna malt contributes a remarkable smoothness and Munich malt gives an amber color and delicate aroma. Tettnang hops infuse the beer with a slight earthiness. Formerly named Heavy Seas Märzen, Cutlass Amber is our second best-selling beer. In 2012, Cutlass Amber won a silver medal at the World Beer Cup in the Vienna Lager category.

21 nov 2013, tap. Amber, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is sweet malt, toast. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes of copper malt. Very fizzy and crisp, and this obscures the beer a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear light golden pour with filmy near white head. Grainy nose with toasted vanilla. Flavor is a little butterscotch and corn and honey. Pretty meh.
Earlier Rating: 11/27/2009 Total Score: 2.9
Pours a very clear pale copper with fair ring of offwhite head. Nose is weak and a bit corny, but not unpleasant. Flavor is a bit doughy, a bit floral, with a caramel, toast, and citrus bite. Medium soft body with fair carbonation. Decent offering for an american take on the style.
