I got this 12oz brown bottle as part of a build your own 6-pack of New Glarus beers for $10. Unfortunately, New Glarus doesn't export their products outside the state, so if you want to try one of these you'll have to go up to Wisconsin to get one.
The beer poured a clear copper color with a 1½-finger white head that lasted about a minute. Very little lacing and no freshness date.
Wonderful smell of baked bread and rich caramel and roasted malts.
A delicious lager. Lots of bready flavor and toasted malt. Sweet caramel is also noticeable but the sweetness is tamed with a hefty dose of Hallertau hops which gives it just a touch of bitterness. Well balanced and very tasty.
Light to medium body withy crisp carbonation.
This is one of the best lagers I ever had. Another winner from New Glarus.

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!
