4.1/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
A: Pours a deep gold with a huge off white bordering on light brown head. The beer is brilliant with very nice active carbonation. The head is a little too big/lingering, and then falls apart completely.
S: Bready and very mild with just a hint of noble hops. Maybe a little estery. Could be bolder.
T: The hops also come through in the taste for sure, giving the beer a good bite, but there is a solid bready, slightly sweet and caramelly malt backbone as well. Mild intensity, but flavorful and complex. As I drink more though I get a little acetelehyde maybe?
M: Light body but smooth and creamy, perfect carbonation.
D: Highly drinkable, though maybe the to-style carbonation is too much for me to have to many.

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!
