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.

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.

New Glarus makes consistently good beer and Two Women is no different. Aroma is sweet, with faint maple. Pours a very carbonated amber with a pillowy off white head. Taste is very crisp and sweet with a light, malt finish. Very, very smooth on the palate with a carbonated bite. Overall, a very drinkable, solid lager from New Glarus.

sthlm (1231) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 [Bottle, thanks, Guerde!] Pours amber with a very small off-white head. Aroma is just barley, and...more barley. I really don’t get much else from it. Taste is basic, but as I would expect from New Glarus, free of any flaws. Just showcases the barley again with light bitterness and a subdued honey sweetness towards the end. Medium-thin mouthfeel, long finish. A very basic, but enjoyable beer. Not quite what I was hoping for when i read the rave reviews for the previous version of this beer, but still good, and would make for a very easy-drinking session beer. Maybe if I bought a case and drank it this summer I would up my score, but I just can’t go much higher at the moment. Thanks again, Andy!

Re-rate: Better than I remember. Still not great, but pretty good.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Moderately sweet, malty aroma. Amber - perfectly clear. Attractive beer. Very smooth lightly malted - extremely drinkable. There is no comparison between a quality lager like this when compared to the common macros that are the big sellers.

Aroma is bready, malt-forward with caramel and cereal notes, slight floral/spicy character from the hops, Pours a light amber, crystal clear, with an ample white head and great retention, lots of lacing. A light bitterness and touch of hop flavor lead in, followed by bready malt and some caramel sweetness. There is a bit of a metallic/mineral bite in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Nice sessionable lager, although I prefer Spotted Cow or Totally Naked as far as lighter offerings from New Glarus go.

Copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grains, bready malt, grassy hops and a touch of skunk. Taste of mild grassy/noble hops, bready malt, mild caramel and grains. A shade metallic on the finish.

Nothing special, but not bad either. Not as good as the old recipe but still not bad.

12 oz bottle from local grocer. Pours a reddish color; thin lead and slight nose. Been drinking a lot of APA and IPA’s lately...and porter / stouts...so this feels and tasts ’thin’....as I sip it, the tastes begin to come thru and it improves. All in all, a good lager from our friends at NG and their brewing friends at Weyerman.
