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.

The body has a very clear golden honey color with an average size, just off white colored head. The head fades to just a wispy thing layer of foam which makes no lacing on the glass. There is some sweet bready and biscuity maltiness with some leafy, slightly sour hop notes. It has a medium body with mildly sweet bready and biscuity maltiness with nutty husk like notes as well. The hops also add a touch of leafy bitterness to the finish. The palate is smooth and easy drinking with average balanced carbonation.

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 (936) - 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.
