Pours a huge, dense, white head. Huge aroma of grassy hops and a bit of sweet malt behind that. A gorgeous dark gold color. Starts with a nice grassy hop bitterness that builds into a medium bitterness. It sits at this bitterness for a few seconds (which is unexpected). A huge wave of malt begins to well up, and takes this into a smooth bliss.
This is a really, really smooth lager. It has a fair bit of hop bitter in the front, and the malt finish is superb, but I find the middle to be a bit lacking. I prefer the profile of Totally Naked or Blonde a bit more. There is a good hoppiness and maltiness, but the transition between those two elements is just not up to par with typical New Glarus offerings.
Don't get me wrong; this is a VERY good brew. But it's not New Glarus's typical level of stellar.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired as part of the variety twelve pack that my mom gave me from a trip to Wisconsin. My second review of a beer from New Glarus Brewing Co.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a crisp golden amber colored body with just under two fingers of foamy off-white head. Leaves behind some thick moderate lacing. Looks very nice.
S - The smell is pleasant, bright, and appealing - floral hops, lightly grassy, herbal, light spice, and some citrus. The Bohemian malt is apparent. Average, but very nice.
T - Taste follows the nose - grassy, grainy, floral, herbal. Again, the bready Bohemian malt is apparent.
M - The feel is smooth, crisp, & clean. Easy drinking, light-bodied, with excellent carbonation. Lightly dry and bready on the finish.
Overall, an exceptionally smooth and classic lager. Very easy drinking with a moderate 5.00% abv. Would definitely drink this much more often if it was available to me in Illinois.
New Glarus Two Women ---4/5.
