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.

Doesn’t seem to have typical pilsner characteristics. Pour is brown with an average white head. The hops and malt are well balanced. To me, this seems more along the lines of a dunkel. But it is a very good dunkel indeed. Great beer!

12 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a translucent gold color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a fine film. The aroma is mild with sweet malts. The taste is similar to the aroma with sweet malts, molasses, biscuit and some spicy hops on the back end. The palate is clean and crisp with lively carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Overall: Very tasty, solid session beer, brews like these are regrettably uncommon.

On tap at Johnny Del Monico’s in Madison, WI. Notes only. Red lager. Semi bitter. I kind of liked it, which is unusual for this style.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with a clingy white head. Aroma and taste of caramel and corn husk. Good for a pils, but just not my thing.

tap and bottle samples-pours lite coper with a really small fizzy/soapy whtie head. nose is grainy, lightly toasted carmel malt lite german lager character-pretty good smell! lots of carmel toasted grain flavors with a splash of herbal/spicy hops. mostly malt forward on this one though. long sweet carmel finish with lingering malt husky tones. a very well put together and clean amber lager here. pretty straight forward but still very pleasant even though there isnt much to write. reminds me of edel pils but with more carmel malt character.

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.
