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.

Pours a bronze color with a foamy white head. Has a mild grainy aroma. The body is rich and malty with an initial flavor of grains followed by a taste of bread with a moderate carbonation and ending with a slightly sweat finish.

(12oz bottle) orange/amber pour, some soapy off-white bubbles on top. Nose of biscuit and cracker, and some mild astringency but smells nice and bready. Taste of fresh unleavened bread, low hop profile. Next to Upright’s The Clash, this just wasn’t as good. Wish it had more hops and was a bit crisper. Didn’t live up to what I hoped it would be.

Tried this beer at the Casanova Beer Cave Festival (2011), very nice taste to this beer.

Had this straight from a 12oz bottle, so didn’t get a look at color or lacing. Wasn’t sure either what to expect from this lager, and thought I might be disappointed. But it has great aroma, great flavor, and finishes well. Not too hoppy and no bite at the end. Clean and refreshing.

A thoughtful bonus from Jason I wondered how this would compare to the brewery only release of years past. As it turns out the tweaks to the recipe make it mildly more appealing. A nice sessionable beer that gives you enough flavor to be worth your time but not so much your palate is dead after one bottle I heartily recommend this to anyone who is looking for world class beers of a normal alcoholic level.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep coppery bronze body was warm with a gentle glow. Ebony head folded in itself over time until only a thin layer remained. The smell of stale rye bred and cold tea would normally be bland but for this style it does what it should - provides some flavor without blasting you in complexity.

Flavor / Palate - The rich malty start is succeeded by a tang of brisk hops. The two balance out nicely leaving a memorable finish that somehow isn’t wearisome even after the final sip. I suspect this may be one of those beers that is much better fresh but will hold some qualities for a few months. Even so if you get a chance to try it do so sooner rather than later.

12 oz. bottle from Verona Wine Cellar. This has a nice compact head that sticks around for some time. It has a dark copper color. Skunky aroma, with a bit of biscuit looming around. Strong Pilsner aroma. The aroma is fairly decent, but it doesn’t blow me away or anything. Bits of charred malts, and skunk are hitting my taste buds. It has this almost burnt/smoky malt flavor to it. Decent hop backing, but there’s not much to this beer. I don’t know why, to me, this just doesn’t seem that is has enough great dimensions to it, for it to be as highly rated as it is. Decent texture, but again, nothing special.

Bottle. Okay this is certainly different... I wish it were more the same as the R&D. The color is definitely more amber, frothy white sticky head. Aroma is nice and grassy hoppy but with a sweeter red apple biscuity malt base, very new glarus but now what I wanted in this pils. Flavor follows, more dominated by the sweet almost acidic red apple flavors... metallic. Not up to par.

Pours light amber with notes of malt. The taste gives a deep malt flavor with light German hoppiness. A good medium finish.

12 oz bottle from Drew. Thanks! The new version.. Skeptical. Pours a dulled darker golden pour, near transparent, well carbonation, crisp yet darker almost amber, with a moderate frothy offwhite head that cakes, stays a decent layer, laces well. Good retention. Aromas are interesting: crisp cereal grains, touches of toast, bread dough, a light floral hopping, touches of grass. Gentle, yet a distinct socky aroma, not necessarily stinky, but a detractor. Light, it gets a touch more biscuity and maybe even a bit toasty, the hops seem the bad part here, light grass and florals and that sockiness. Initial is heavier side of light bodied, some light soapy florals move into cereal grains, bread, and toasty, light and easily quaffable, a touch of pepper up front, some straw, and earthy hops are gentle, with a moderate blast of doughy bread, toast, and cereal grains, faint honey. Finish is lingering light doughy sweetness, faint bitterness and spice. Bubbly and fizzy on the palate. Ok, doesn’t remind me of the previous version though.

12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty pale malty nose with some fresh German hoppiness. Starts with a mild malty sweetness, a touch of maize and bittering hop balance before a fairly smooth and drier bittersweet finish. Nowhere near as crisp and balanced as the R & D version, but this seems like something that is marketed for another audience.
