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.

Cakes (383) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 12 oz bottle. Nice looking beer. Great bottle. Then downhill. A very light nose. Nice first taste, then it kinda flattens out. I can taste the caramel and the nuts, but not much here. "Thin" for a Marzen. Nice looking but a bit high on the carbonation,

bartzluke (124) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 4, 2015
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.

drowland (6636) - Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2015
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.

Christpuncher (1733) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2015
This beer somehow got a silver medal. Not sure about that. Very yeasty and sweet for a lager. Smells like fruit. Pours yellowish orange in color with a thin white head. Sink pour for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3801) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Pours clear amber, a little towards the dark end, with a thick - if not persistent - eggshell head. Crisp, malty aroma has a fruity hint. Flavor is crisp, malty with hints of pear and apple, typical but pleasing. Mouthfeel is about average in both fizz and viscosity departments. Could be a good gateway beer to wean people off macro-brewed swill.

rjplumer (606) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2015
Mild toasted caramel aroma. Light amber body. Sweet caramel taste with a mild roasted malt background. Feels fuller bodied than it looks. Sweet and wet to the finish.

rdixon77 (1410) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Old rating. Pretty nondescript marzen type beer (which is not my favorite style anyway). Amber color. Toast, sweet, caramel malts. A little hop bittering. Completely forgettable.

12oz bottle from somewhere... Copper pour with a thin white head and loose sheets of lacing. Aroma of toasted, bready, toffee. Tastes of sweet toffee, grass, floral, herbal. Background juicy vibe. Ok.
