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.

The aroma doesn’t impress me, kind of artificial or chemical?. That said, it pours a nice dark gold amber with a white brief head and some lacing. The taste is quite good, a nice balance of malt and hops. The finish is agreeable with a little toastiness. A pretty good lager that I would try again. I wish I would have tried the previous recipe since the consensus seems to be it was a little better.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a soapy off white head that fades to a wispy film. Aroma is grassy fruit and malt. Taste is malty grain and grass with bitter finish. Palate is thin and bready with a dry crisp finish.

DalzAle (2011) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to MatSciGuy! Amber brown pour, decent carbonation and a biscuity aroma. Flavor was caramel, some nuts and earthy and a little weird funk on the aftertaste. Loved the 2010, but not a huge fan of this one.

bhiner41 (187) - Darien, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Not the best lager. Good color, golden almost amber, no head, slight white ring. Malt front, lemon notes but not hoppy, funk after taste. Tastes like grolsch, smooth then rank after taste on the palate. Average at best.

joeneugs (4305) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
500 ml bottle thanks to Deyholla! It pours a golden yellow color hazier than I expected with a smallish white layer of foam. The aroma is lightly sweet with grains and cookie like malts. Maybe a hint of lemon, but not much noble hop character. The flavor is full with sweet graininess and hints of lemon with only a whisper of earthy hop balance in the finish. Full bodied for a lager but still manages to have a watery palate. I love New Glarus, but this was a disappointment.

tmoreau (2993) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Shared 12 oz. bottle at a monthly group tasting. Poured to a sampler with a deep orange/gold color, a layer of soft white, creamy head foam, and light spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma was light grain, light noble perfume, Pils malt, and a hint of maize. A typical lager nose. The flavor added soft hop bitterness, a light body, and some finishing dryness. A no nonsense, basically satisfying, Czech Pils. Recently shared another bottle, and noticed a hint of light fruitiness as apricot in addition to the other comfortable notes.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Amber pour, light head. Aroma of caramel, pils malt, crackers. Flavor is malty, lightly hoppy, some biscuit notes...not a bad lager. Last years version was better.

jake65 (2901) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle: Chestnut pour with a modest beige head. Not much to the aroma, just some aromatic florals and light lager maltiness. Tastes smooth enough with lots of malt and a light bit of grassiness.

Bottle. Lager style, but oddly creamy and thick. Finish lasts. Not bad but just off for the style.

Tmoney99 (12053) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured a clear dark straw color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet dry finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.
