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.

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 16, 2011
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 (7820) - 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!

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Breeze Thru liquors in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a thick off-white head that quickly disappears to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light biscuit and floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, some floral and citrus hops with a touch of yeast. Finish is neutral with a crisp and light malt aftertaste. A touch less body than the R&D version.

GT2 (8163) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 11, 2011
355mL thanks to Ughsmash. Pours a Vienna amber with a towering buttermilk head. Good retention and giant swathes of lace remain. Nose is quite macro lagery: sugar overload, sweet cherry, grenadine....not what I was expecting. Sorts of starts out like basic lager from South America/Asia/Africa but doesn’t devolve to chemical notes or metals. Taste is sweet, a bit suddy and soapy. Pretty sweet and very macro lagery. Really doesn’t remind me of the R&D batch at all. This is not doughy, not yeasty, not sharp, not hoppy. In blind taste...well my stupid palate would probably Sam Adams Light or something else abominable. So...not the ultimate session lager after all. :-(

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Nice golden pour with a touch of amber. White head with minimal lacing. Smell of malt and hops. Smooth and refreshing taste with sweetness from the malts and citrusy hops. Good beer!

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark gold with a medium white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, grass and slight yeast. Biscuit and slightly sweet flavors up front with a nice bitter finish...very drinkable and damned good. Wish I would have bought more of this!

HonkeyBra (3247) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Hazy burnt orange pour with thick white head. Aroma of floral hops, mild crackers, some sweet malt. Flavor has a fairly nice bitter hop presence but retains an odd sweetness. Malt notes of biscuits, crackers, bread. Definitely, it’s missing out on the crispness and dryness of the R&D version. It seems the mouthfeel differs to, because what I remember as a effervescent and lively mouthfeel is muted and bordering almost on soft carbonation. It’s a great beer, don’t get me wrong. It’s just disappointing as the R&D version was absolutely excellent.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 6, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden color with a large white head and some strings of lacing. S: Nice bready malts on the nose with plenty of sweetness. There is a nice yeasty quality to the nose and some floral and earthy hops. There is a bit of sweet apple and biscuit malts. T: Bread and biscuit malty base give the beer substance and sweetness. The same sweet apple is there on the palate as well. Floral and earthy hops with a very slight bitterness. M: Light in body with a medium carbonation. O: A really clean and delicious lager. Great stuff.

happyfunland (5) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2011 does not count
Lost a little when going to large production from the early batches in the larger bottles but still my new favorite beer. Living 4 miles from the brewery that makes my favorite beer is wonderful! This should not be classified as a Pils. It is not German style Pils at all. It is a Bavarian style farmhouse lager, so anyone who drinks this based on the category listed here and says "well, this doesn’t taste like a pils"; well, it shouldn’t, because it isn’t. It is a much maltier creature without being sweet, somewhat like an Alt but with a more hoppy start.
