UPDATED: APR 5, 2011 lost rating....500ml bottle. thanks to drew for sharing this at the time... pours a mostly transparent light golden pour with medium white head to top things off... soft grains and a fair grassiness incorporate the aroma....flavors followed suit with an added hoppy herbal floralness. light to medium bodied falling closer to the former. clean easy drinking. i enjoyed this and iím not even a pilsner fan. canít wait to try the new batch (thanks drew)

original rating: New glarus two women lager. 500ml bottle shared by Andrew... Pours a mostly clear golden orange brown with a thin white head... Grassy sweet aroma, not too grainy as most pils are. Almost a semi fruitiness there... Flavors are much of the same without that much sweetness. Some of that honey and fruit tones that makes it stand out. 7/4/8/4/15

The label suggests that the art of brewing beer was created by, and dominated by women for thousands and thousands of years. It says that only since the Industrial Revolution of the past 200 years has beer been turned over to the hands of men. This beer is an ode to women brewers, tastes better than any man Lager Iíve ever drank. Good work ladies!

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2011 500ml botte from Discount Liquor Milwaukee. Pours a crystal-clear, haystraw-yellow color with a white head. Aroma is light, sweet, a little malty. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, crisp, light, malty, with a light, bitter hop finish. Excellent.

12 oz bottle from my buddy up in Wisconsin. Thanks! Poured a dark clear brown, with a nice fluffy head that lasted for a while. Aroma of ceareal, nuts and roasted malts. Taste is crisp, malty. Mouthfeel is perfect, medium with a nice lingering aftertaste. Overall a well done brew, one of my favs in this category, and another great brew by New Glarus.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 500ml bottle that cost 8$. Pours a nice crystal clear, deep gold. The head it foamy and bright white and rises above the rim. It stays for a good while before receding and leaving some nice lace. The smell is very grassy, with some fresh cut hay and lemon. Under that is some herbal goodness and grain. The taste brings a bit more bread to the game, along with tangy noble hops. Dan clearly knows how to temper the noble hops like real Czech pilsener brewers. Most American breweries tend to overhop thier pilseners. This one has a nice balance. Some malt sweetness creeps in as it warms. There is also a nice mineral water taste in there too. It truly tastes authentic. The mouthfeel is a bit dry, but the carbonation is pretty good. It has a nice rich body, nut still pretty light. I have to discredit this one somewhere though and Iíll go with drinkability. It is solid, it is authentic tasting, but I can get a 12 pack of Pilsener Urquell for the price of this bottle, granted this is better than the import version of Urquell but still, it is overpriced. Solid, solid Czech pils though, buy it and try it once, until they make it a regular for a cheaper price which they should because it is one of their best beers. They now sell it at discount for a more reasonable 5.99 and it will soon come in 6 packs for about 7$. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-11-2010 23:35:05

Pale straw coloured pour. The nose is great. Clean, pale malt. Fresh and light with a bit of soft noble hoppiness. A little bit bready and lightly yeasty as well. Itís tough to say why this is so good - but itís very damn tasty.

Pours a dark straw with a loose white head. The nose is herbal and grassy, noble hops. Taste us grainy, biscuity - like most pilsners. A bit on the light and thin side for a true Bohemian pilsner, but an excellent version of the German style.

Thanks to John for this.. . Pours a yellow caramel , with medium foam and great lacing .. . for being close to a year old this is still a fantastic lager, light floral notes with some fresh hay and grain .. . Is it true that thereís a point on a manís head where if you shoot it, it will blow up?

500mL Bottle. Thanks Kevin! I dreamt about pilsner last night. In my dreams I was going from bar to bar in a rather well-populated urban center, failing to find any respectable renditions of a well-lagered, lightly hoppy, crisp and crackery pilsner. It was frustrated. So to slake the thirst of my dreams, Iím pouring this hallowed beer tonight. While I am fully willing to acknowledge that this 500mL bottle Iím drinking is not as fresh as it could be, honestly, it doesnít seem that much worse for the wear. It doesnít suffer from that soppy, wet cardboard oxidized pilsner malt flavor that so many brown bottled European pilsners suffer from once they get to the states. No, this is lively, rich with pale honey, cracker, wheat germ and fresh bread flavors, nicely backed with a light, light hint of hops. Juicy in the finish. Ah yes, this was what I was searching for in my sleep.

Pours gold with a lasting, bollowy white head. Smells of earth, some grassy hints, noble hops, touches of wildflowers. Tastes spicy with up front semi sweet pilsner malt, some light citrus, earthy finish. Some minerally notes as the beer begins to warm. Excellent! I wish more pilsners were as flavorful as this one.
