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.

Bottle- Nice malty body and enough hops to make this beer very nice, great session beer and interesting interpretation.

Pours light amber with a thin layer of fizzy head. Aroma is mainly yeast esters with some caramel and biscuit side notes. Flavor is very sweet with fruit, caramel and floral notes. The aftertaste is reminiscent of a sweet apple cider with slight nutty character.

Pretty unpalatable brew. Flavor is light grass and not very smooth at all. Would expect a bit more from this company.

I typically dislike Marzens. However, this one is okay. Nothing special, but a decent enough malt profile with subdued hops. Better than most for the style.

Emeister84 (861) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Aromas of bread dough, biscuit, light earthy hops. Orange-amber, mostly lasting white head. A touch of initial malt sweetness, biscuity, hops are clean and grassy. Light bodied, short clean finish with some residual malt flavors.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours hazy medium dark amber. Bready, malty nose. Malty sweet taste but offset nicely by the hops. I’ve never been a fan of Vienna lagers, but since I enjoy Heavy Seas beers I decided to give it a shot. I think it’s a nice beer, but probably won’t buy again.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2014
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear caramel orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head, reducing down to a light film and medium collar with poor runny lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet biscuit malt, mild herbal hops and an earthy doughy yeast with notes of caramel and toffee.

The taste was somewhat malty sweet and had a touch of caramel throughout, with the finish having a slight bitterness and a light toffee sweetness towards the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a nice crisp finish on the palate.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a carbonation that was just past soft in intensity.

Overall I found this brew to be light in body and taste, that being said it still does possess a decent maltiness and a nice sweet bitter finish, making it somewhat enjoyable and easy to drink... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

@ Party Town / Florence KY - Nearly clear dirty copper with a long head cover, tiny streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt with earthy spices lightly mixed in. Carbonation and a touch of hop bitters keep the balance. A decent brew with more flavor and complexity than many similar brews. Recommended.
