Style | ABV
Vienna Lager |  5.40% ABV

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.

I did the 1st review and I'm not quite sure if this is an American Amber Lager as most of the ingredients are German. Feel free to change to proper style if I didn't classify it correctly.

Appearance is very clear copper color with lots of carbonation. Fizzy head to start but then it settles in for a nice 2 finger head and decent retention.

Very disappointing smell of sulfur and malt. Not much else.

Taste - Almost an adjunct like metallic and grain taste. Some crispness in the finish. Not tasting the Noble hops nor the various German malts that are claimed on the label.

Mouthfeel - Respectable for the style.

Overall - An ok sessionable lager beer, but flavoring is not up to Clipper City's usual standards.

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

The pour was a clear caramel orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head, reducing down to a light film and medium collar with poor runny lacing.

The aroma was of a sweet biscuit malt, mild herbal hops and an earthy doughy yeast with notes of caramel and toffee.

The taste was somewhat malty sweet and had a touch of caramel throughout, with the finish having a slight bitterness and a light toffee sweetness towards the end. The flavor lasted only a short time following the swallow, with a nice crisp finish on the palate.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a carbonation that was just past soft in intensity.

Overall I found this brew to be light in body and taste, that being said it still does possess a decent maltiness and a nice sweet bitter finish, making it somewhat enjoyable and easy to drink...

3.04/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, caramelized malts, some fruit and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and honey. Then a thin malt character and lager yeast breadiness comes in. The hops presence is very mild and there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little smooth and quite watery, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.
