Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bubseymour on 04-30-2013

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.

A good beer but nothing jumping out to rate it any higher. Amber color with a decent head and a good malt flavor.

A big Thank You to Shroud0fDoom for this brew, my first entry for NBS BIF #1. 12oz bottle with a best by date of 5/2/15. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a clean, clear medium light amber color with just a thin cap of off-white head that had low retention and no lace.

The aroma was mostly grain and biscuit, but there was an earthy/grassy undertone. The flavors featured the same basic "beeriness", lots of biscuit, with just enough hops to offer a decent counterpoint.

The body was a step or two on the light side of medium for the style, and had a slightly sweet finish. Drinkability was good, the beer was gone quickly, and I suspect one could slide several of these down in short order. Overall, a solid, if unspectacular, example of the style. Worth trying if you see it.

Oddly estery, finishes thin and fizzy. Some hard water, Burton-on-Trent feel. Little hop character on either end.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Tons of malt & near perfect sweetness. I getting a touch of banana/peach on the tongue. Not much head or lacing but I really like this & at 5.2% I`m in for the long haul.
