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.

12oz bottle. Very lightly hazy amber color. Not that much head. Toasted bread, a little dried cherry, and a good dose of cardboard in the aroma. Lightly sweet toasted malt flavor before a finish that just falls apart into paper and a tingly metallic bitterness. This is just getting to it’s best by date, but this is already pretty much done for. Seems like it would be a very nice beer fresh though. The components are there, but oxidation is ruining everything.

Aroma: Toasted malts with hints of skunks yeast aromas. Appearance: Clear amber with rich tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness straight through. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: A bit too sweet for my taste. Not bad, though.

Pailhead (5024) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate fruit, light caramel, brown sugar, toasty notes, and a hint of apple. It pours a transparent amber with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate toasty caramel with a touch of brown sugar and fruit. The finish has light apple with a touch of roast and earthy bitterness. It’s medium bodied with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this one is a little too sweet for me.

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.
