Relatively dark, golden bronze bodied with a healthy ivory dome that laces well even as it fades fairly fast.
The nose is greeted with a apple-tinged breadiness and pangs of spicy, grassy hops, augmented with a drop of lemon oil.
It begins through the mouth with a toasty breadiness that blossoms into a suggestion of crusty apple pie, emphasizing the crust more than the fruit, though traces of the latter appear. Brisk and lagered clean through the middle. Hops bring tempered grassy herbs, dried floral bitterness, and just a squirt of lemon.
Medium+ bodied with a carbonation that fades fairly quickly. It's by no means heavy or cloying, but it lacks a bit of crispness and drinkability for the style. It's a bit like Staghorn's skinnier little brother. And that's not a bad thing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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!
