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.

Nice head. Crystal clear. Classic lager nose bready with malt in the background and some hops. Crisp and malty flavor with mild hops. Very clean flavor. Some bitterness on the finish.

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.

Pours a dark bronze with thin white head. Strong aroma of apples and I think I’m getting molasses as well. Tasting of plums and apples, very sweet. The plums fade near the middle and the apples come out a little more. Finishes very crisp with a little hopiness. If I had my own cold plate tap, I would put this through it and die happy.

A perfect balance of Bready Yeasts, Lemon Zest, Barley, Floral Hops and Malts make this a truly wonderful, crisp and refreshing Pilsener to drink.

Pours amber with a small white head. Smells of toffee and mild earthy hops. Taste is bready, toffee, and mild earthiness. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Glarus Two Women Lager finishes with a mild semisweet tingle.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear nut brown with a finger of white head. Aroma is bready and yeasty with a little sour fruit. Taste is light sweet. Bready and fruity. Light bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, pretty good. I could drink this one again.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2012 Edit: Originally I thought the recipe changed just a bit but I am convinced this is nothing like the original. Nor is this a pilsener. This is a hybrid beer somewhere between a maerzen and an exportbier.

Can believe this one hasn’t creeped up to level 4. New Glarus is well known for their amazing wheat and fruit beers; however, I think most people discount the amazing Pilsners they put out. Two Women Lager is o ne of those Pilsners. Pours a rich copper color that turns a beautiful, golden elixir with fizzy white head. Aroma is of rich grassy hops, bready malts, and a nose of fresh baked pastries. Taste is grassy hops, light fruit, toasted malt backbone and sourdough. The finish is sharp, yet remains well balanced as the tanginess is balanced out by the toasted grain character. Easy drinking and delish! I missed Edel-Pils big time, and this more than makes up for it! Dan, great job on this one!

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.
