3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
