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. Todays 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 Weyermanns floor malted Bohemian malt and Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. A tempting and graceful classic lager found... Only in Wisconsin.

Bottle from a trade, lost in my memory. Thanks, ticker! My impression, alas, seems consistent with most others in finding this to be quite a step backward from the first version. Darkish pour, looks like a Vienna more than a Bo pils. Nose is grainy and not sufficiently dry. Taste follows suit and is sort of generically malty lager-ish with just a sprinkling of pert dryness. Bummer.

12oz bottled 347th day of 2011--Dec. 12ish? from coharahawk--thank you Cole! Clear medium amber with a half finger light beige head, fair retention. Aroma has some sweet biscuity malts with some lightly herbal grassy hops behind. Flavor adds some light hay, otherwise the same lightly sweet biscuit malt. Not crazy hoppy, but enough for a nice balance (plus I didnt drink this as early as I could have). Bitterness peaked at a 3 in the dry finish. Light to moderate pillowy soft carbonation with a medium body. I prefer the old version, but this is still way drinkable, and if I was in WI this could be one of my go-to summer beers.

A pour into a tulip glass reveals a clear amber color, topped with a full two-fingers of fluffy and creamy white head. The head sticks around for the party with good retention and tons of lacing. Clean and crisp. Very nice balance between bready caramelized malts, lager yeast and some hops. Theres a little bit of both with a sweetness that may be more dominate. Maybe just a subtle hint of honey sweetness and citrus. Soft and subtly sweet caramel malt, nutty, toasted grain, and a hint of floral hops. The malts really pop at the front, with just a hint of sourness lingering around the edges. The hops take over in the second half, providing some acidity and just a gentle bite of bitter at the end. Made in the style of a pilsener, there is not going to be anything to knock the socks off of most beer drinkers aside from the smoothness. Balance, balance, balance. This is the one weakness I could find in this beer. Fairly benign mouthfeel; it has reasonable crisp but lacks a certain flair. It also seems a little thin. Finishes clean. I would have liked a bit more carbonation and body. Well New Glarus managed to knock me over with a feather again. Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of the style. Another fine session beer with flavor and substance. Again, me only knock would be the thin mouthfeel.

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

Golden amber with thin off white head. Mild caramel and mild floral aroma. Mild caramel, malt dominant, and German hop notes. Lite bodied, nice tongue tangling zing, and mild bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a amber orange with a white head. Nose of malt some grain. The caramel malts come on too strong and eclipse the crisp hoppiness that resides underneath. Less cara and sweet malts more of that simple two row to let those floral hops speak for themselves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark bronze with thin white head. Strong aroma of apples and I think Im 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.
