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.

Overall an enjoyable beer. Amber in color, light in taste. Could have multiple of these in the summer. Crisp and clean

Golden amber with thin off white head. Mild caramel and mild floral aroma. Mild caramel, malt dominant, and German hop notes. Lite bodied, nice tongue tangling zing, and mild bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a amber orange with a white head. Nose of malt some grain. The caramel malts come on too strong and eclipse the crisp hoppiness that resides underneath. Less cara and sweet malts more of that simple two row to let those floral hops speak for themselves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark bronze with thin white head. Strong aroma of apples and I think I’m getting molasses as well. Tasting of plums and apples, very sweet. The plums fade near the middle and the apples come out a little more. Finishes very crisp with a little hopiness. If I had my own cold plate tap, I would put this through it and die happy.

A very nice pilsner. Aromatic, smooth, then a pleasing kind of pilsner finish.

Nice head. Crystal clear. Classic lager nose bready with malt in the background and some hops. Crisp and malty flavor with mild hops. Very clean flavor. Some bitterness on the finish.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 Aroma has a certain breadiness to it with some very mild spiced overtones. Appearance is sort of a deep copper. It’s a nice off white head to start but falls off quickly. It’s medium bodied with a medium texture that sticks slightly to the glass. Carbonation dissipates fast and leaves just a slight lacing down the glass. Slightly bitter on the finish. Not a bad lager, but I wouldn’t put this in my top 5 New Glarus brews. If it wasn’t in the variety pack, I wouldn’t seek it out on it’s own. Re-rate: I tried it again just to make sure I wasn’t selling it short. Unfortunately I had the opposite reaction and lowered some of my scores. Maybe I just don’t enjoy style and that factors into my rating. But for me, this just tasted like a run of the mill lager. Nothing special and I’ve had much better. It’s too bad. Sounds like the few years prior might have been a better beer according to people on here.

Big thanks to BeerFMAndy for getting a nice box of New Glarus out to me. Served in a New Glarus tasting glass. Pours a somewhat-dark golden color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries some bready malt and a very faint hop presence. I pegged this as a non-adjunct American lager, and was disappointed to see if called a pilsner. The hop presence in this is quite subdued, and instead there’s a bit of light bready malt. Body is a bit too heavy for a pilsner without the refreshing dryness.

Thanks to JMack for the bottle. Pours a nutty brown with a thick white head. Big noble hops, earthy and a touch of sweetness in the aroma. Taste is smooth big malt, clean with a touch noble hop bitterness. Well balanced and very tasty, excellent lager.

12 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. The aroma has caramel and bready malts, mild herbal notes and light touches of fruit, spicy hops and yeast. The flavor has a moderately sweet caramel malt backbone with light fruitiness, yeast and fruits. The flavor seems to fall off a bit at the finish. Not too bad.
