Currently ranked #8 in the German Pilsener category here on BA. Thanks for sending this one, BeerFMAndy!
Served in a shaped glass.
A: Poured a crystal clear, peppery orange brown color with a robust finger to finger + head that clung to the glass as the beer was siphoned.
S: The German malt was particularly strong here, with a bit of a sweet, tomato juice quality that was strange but seemed to work to my mind.
T: Lots of layers here: Initially, I got sourdough bread, after a few sips, it got a bit sweeter and sticker, then, at the end, a yeasty, almost carrot juice component kicked in, followed by a twang of bitterness. Really nice.
M: Just the right amount of sweetness, which was spaced out nicely by the moderate carbonation. Mild, splotchy lacing.
O: Definitely one of the stronger entries in this style class that I've tried. New Glarus does it again!

12 oz bottle poured into a New Glarus pilsner glass.
A - Completely clear dark golden yellow, almost amber-ish, Two Women has a dense white head with great retention, plateauing to a centered pile of foam that leaves lace shrouding the glass.
S - Opening with a touch of coarse grainy malt, Two Women mellows out to a slightly nutty, biscuit-like bready maltiness that's complimented by a gentle touch of Noble hop spiciness on the finish.
T - Crisp and clean bready malt flavor leads into a subtle Noble hop floral spiciness that finishes dry with hard mineral water.
M - Two Women has a smooth malty entry that immediately feels a little flat and lifeless from lack of carbonation before drying the palate out with a light mineral finish.
O - New Glarus' Two Women has a great story behind it, representing two craft beer companies run by women in a male-dominated industry but I think with all his talent, Dan could do a little better with this beer. Balanced hopping brings the tasty malts to a very clean and drinkable level but, I find the lack of carbonation to give the beer a somewhat slick and flat feel; it's not quite lively enough which would coincidentally reflect Deb's personality well!
