Availability: Spring

Notes/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.

Pours a fairly clear medium brown with copper tones and s frothy ivory head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Light floral hops, toasty malt, yeast fruitiness, and a slight metallic character form the aroma.

Flavor is dominated by biscuity malt, somewhat nutty and a touch sweet, finishing with toasted bitterness. The metallic character surfaces again, along with a slight fruity estery note.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation, and light alcohol warmth. There's a bit of slickness present.

Very drinkable brew. Malt character is pleasant. If the estery and metallic notes weren't present, this would score higher.

Good year-round beer: not too heavy but still has some depth and character. It seemed like this beer was all about getting the balances right: there are the biscuit/bread flavors from the malt and yeast, but it's not overly sweet. There is enough hopping to balance the malt, but it's not overly bitter. This is a great beer to have with food - I would have this with an entree salad instead of bread.

Would definitely get this again.
