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.

Poured an amber-gold with a nice lofty head and a very slow fade to substantial lacing. Aroma was of malts and corn/adjuncts. Funny, but it reminded me of Old Milwaukee’s aroma. Taste was of a typical American lager - malts and corn/adjuncts on the front-end with a fade to mild hops, with a slight bitterness. Mind you, the hops here are of superior quality to the ones in macros. Palate was decent but not expectional. Overall, a solid lager, but I can not justify going into the 3’s with this one.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Bottle from CanIHave4Beers. You rule, Andy. Pours a deep gold, getting close to brown, with a ever-present thin white foam head. Nose of sweet grains, white bread, mild grassy and floral hops. Bit of honey. Hay. Similar taste. Clean and fresh. My first sip or so said "boring," but it’s just so perfectly clean and fresh.

Pours a nice brownish-copper color with good, medium-sized head. Some floral, grassy scents mixed in with the malt and hops. Flavor is very smooth and emphasizes the maltiness of the beer over the hops. There’s just a touch of sweetness to the finish. A very drinkable beer. I’d think it would go well with food.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2011
12 oz. bottle brought down from Madison by my aunt-in-law. Pours a nice clear amber color with a small off-white head that manages to stick around for a while and leave some minor lace. Aroma of toasted malts, sweet dough, cereal, and light grassy hops. Maybe a bit of brown sugar, too. Flavor is also pretty malty- cereal, sweet, dough- with dry grass and grains, and some faint hops. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Really nice beer that paired well with dinner and absolutely hit the spot for me.

spilledpint (345) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2011
12 oz. bottle from somewhere. Notes stashed away on my computer from around the time of the release. Ar: Bread, caramel, malt-centric. Mild grassy hop aroma. Ap: Pours a pretty clear copper with a 1" white head. Mediocre retention. T: Lovely. Malty, bready, caramel. Finish is extremely clean and very mildly hopped. P: Medium body, medium carbonation. Sessionable. O: This is very well done. I still wish I would have been able to try the original, but this is an excellent lager.

badgerben (4395) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Dark gold color with a small head. Buttery Munich malt aroma. Oddly no sizeable hop aroma. They definitely show up in the flavor. Very herbal and floral bitterness. Solid malt base. Dry finish. Lovely.

MikeMoriendi (72) - Boynton Beach, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Very clear copper color. Small white head but does leave some good lacing. The nose is grainy, bready and malty. Some very subtle hop presence. The taste is really a whole lot of the same. Crisp and clean finish. Pretty standard lager.

sherm1016 (1139) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is malty, cereal, bread. Medium body on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, crisp, with a light, clean, bitter finish. Not as good as the original Two Women Lager (R&D Series), but still another excellent beer from NG. Reviewed on 03/31/2011.
