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.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2006 [Bottled] Deep golden, buttery aroma. Sweet and caramelly with clean, hard mouthfeel. Dominated by crystal malt in sort of a pastisch of the style. There are some nice flavours, but a Märzen needs to be softer to be enjoyable.

daknole (9415) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Draft at Taco Mac. Medium brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty plain...malty and light. Flavor is pretty decent, with some good malt and sweetness. But I expect a bit more flavor and body in an Octoberfest.
