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 served in a lager glass. Pours clear amber-gold with a thin diminishing head. Lots of honey in the nose along with some bread crust and a bit of noble hop herbalness. The flavor is more like a light bock than an o-fest. Very malty, doughy flavor that screams Munich malt, some honey, and cracker. Despite the malty flavor it is actually fairly dry and crisp but sweetens slightly toward the finish. While I wouldn’t call it 100% true to style it is fairly close and more suited to my palate than a lot of American made festbiers.

Nice and quite amber too. Thin shape but great taste. Awesome to drink with the flight at the bar.

joejames (454) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours cloudy amber, One finger near white head. No lacing, scant retention. Aroma of toasted malt. Tastes sweet, nicely balanced with earthy hops. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of caramel, biscuit, earth, toast and slight skunk. Classic example of the style. Not bad.

GSH1976 (284) - Delaware, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a little head. Aroma is somewhat sweet but not much going on. Taste is bread and caramel with a slight bitterness in the finish. Overall the flavors are lacking and this tastes watered down. Light to medium bodied. This is a very bland beer.

Cutlass is an okay beer. I couldn’t really distinguish this from other amber lagers, and I might just be learning that amber lagers aren’t my thing, but this beer is pretty weak in terms of flavor or mouthfeel.

solidfunk (6772) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Not a lot of aroma here other than faint barley. Pretty much a pale lager in terms of experience. Golden pour. Some mash sour finish. Tap at Rosslyn brewpub.

This is a lager as it should be. Very smooth and light yet possessing a kick. Sweet aroma and sweet taste with caramel and sugar. The beer is thin as it should. Light bodied and extremely drinkable. These ratings are skewed towards the heavier beers. Thank god for the style percentages. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 4 oz pour from draft into sniffer at 42 degrees. A little flowery (lilac?). Maybe a little yeasty. Very smooth. Great body.

5/1/15. Happy International Tuba Day! Clear red pour with a small khaki head, almost no lacing. Sickeningly sweet aroma, cloying, caramel, biscuit. Very sweet flavor, caramel, toffee, biscuit, bread... really not my thing.
