COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recipe changed in 2011. Four thousand years before Christ, Sumerian women created the divine drink of beer. Viking women brewed in Norse Society. European Ale Wives were so successful as cottage brewers they were taxed. Artisanal women lost their domination of the daily ritual of brewing during the Industrial Revolution. Today’s brewing trade is controlled by men. The collaboration of two Craft companies both led by women, New Glarus Brewing Company and Weyermann Malting, is unique. You hod the result "Two Women" a classic country lager brewed with Weyermann’s floor malted Bohemian malt and Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. A tempting and graceful classic lager found... Only in Wisconsin.

Had this on tap at the Paddock Club in Elkhart Lake, WI. The beer looks really nice, deep dark golden in color with a well-formed white head and good lacing. The aroma has bready pale malt and maybe a hint of toastiness, with a decent grassy hop note. The flavor is decent but not as good as the first batch. Pale malt, toast, slight caramel, and moderate hop bitterness. Fairly dry and crisp with medium-light body. Good for the style, but yeah, I like the old recipe better.

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured dark reddish/brown with a beige head. Very much a lager from the aroma all the way through to the flavors. New Glarus seems to make standard Lagers very well, and they should being from the mid-west. Some malt tones, but otherwise, clean and easy drinking. Very much German.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of TheGuy. Thanks! Opened 6/23/11. Pours a clear golden brown color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of pale malts, some breadiness, apples, faint toastiness and a faintly hoppy finish. The taste is toasted malts, earthy and herbal hops, caramel. Medium bodied. Dan Carey makes some out of this world lagers. This isn’t one of them, but its still a good beer.

vyvvy (3603) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pours brownish bronze with a decent sized light beige head. The aroma has smooth toasty lager malt with some nuttiness and a mild noble hop character - very nice and clean. Medium body that gets a little crisp after the initial taste with mild carbonation. The taste starts with toasty lager malt that’s on the dry side, hazelnuts and dark caramel. The finish has some spicy and grassy hoppiness added. Really nice lager that has a simple taste, but lots of subtitles to make it interesting. New Glarus has German style done in America down like no one else.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle pours deep gold with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty simple with notes of fresh baked bread, light honey, and some grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with some additional vanilla and light floral notes. Overall it’s pretty straightforward but not quite as impressive as it was in the previous version.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Caramel-orange, off white foam. Aroma is crackery, toasted malt, light caramel, some herbal hoppiness, grainy. Taste is more toasted malt with a light fruitiness, caramel apples and just enough of an herbal hoppiness to balance. All that said, it is just a little too malt heavy for my personal tastes.

Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color with a thin white head. Smelled of hay, pale malt, subdued honey, and grassy hop. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. Grape candy, grassy hop, subdued caramel flavors. Decent.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Pours a clear old gold with a 2 finger, creamy light beige head that has great retention and leaves nice sheets of lacing. Aroma is cereal grain, light toast, spicy and light floral hops with a touch of dry sweet hay thrown in there. Flavor is sweetish cereal grain, toast, light mineral notes, spicy, herbal and floral hops. Mineral notes, cereal and spicy hops to the finish. Palate is light, but full bodied with a fairly neutral feel throughout and moderate carbonation. Finishes a little sweeter than I would like, but is otherwise a damn fine pilsener. Granted it doesn’t seem quite as spectacular as last year’s version, but at less than half the price per ounce I can deal with it.

BMan1113VR (7786) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle thanks to SS. Pours with a clear and very dark golden body (near amber) with a lasting, rocky, off-white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are huge with hallertau/noble hops (spicy, earthy and light fruit-pear, pulot), grainy and bready malt notes. Light salinity and sulfur, but otherwise very clean. Aromas are lightly fruity, hoppy, with a strong malt backing: bready, light cereal (slightly soggy), grainy, hints of melanoidins. Very clean. Rich malt on the mid palate with a dry finish. Lively bubbles. Crisp, dry and clean. A very nice lager!
