Pours a clear amber to deep gold. A solid pour forms a dense rocky head that leaves a significant amount of lace behind with each gulp. I say gulp because this is a very quaffable beer. The aroma is quite simple; fresh malt and maybe some grass hops. The taste reminds me quite a bit of Bohemian lager more than a German Pilsener, something perhaps like a Czechvar...but upon further reflection it is also reminds me of a Wurzburger Pils which I suppose is what the brewer is really trying to emulate. A touch of caramel malt, some toasted malt, some very fresh (almost worty) malt flavor is present here with a touch of bubblegum and mild graininess. Maybe I just worked extra hard today, this is very quaffable, with the right amount of hops to make me wish I picked up a case of this stuff.

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!
