Currently ranked #8 in the German Pilsener category here on BA. Thanks for sending this one, BeerFMAndy!

Served in a shaped glass.

A: Poured a crystal clear, peppery orange brown color with a robust finger to finger + head that clung to the glass as the beer was siphoned.

S: The German malt was particularly strong here, with a bit of a sweet, tomato juice quality that was strange but seemed to work to my mind.

T: Lots of layers here: Initially, I got sourdough bread, after a few sips, it got a bit sweeter and sticker, then, at the end, a yeasty, almost carrot juice component kicked in, followed by a twang of bitterness. Really nice.

M: Just the right amount of sweetness, which was spaced out nicely by the moderate carbonation. Mild, splotchy lacing.

O: Definitely one of the stronger entries in this style class that I've tried. New Glarus does it again!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep copper golden orange color with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that recede into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A bready malt and grain driven aroma with subtle spice. Bready malts with good hints of biscuit, yeast, hay, crackers, and cereal grains. Subtle hint of apple fruit. Also some lemon. Fairly grassy and earthy with some noble hops providing some spice. A solid crisp Pilsener aroma.

Taste: Nicely crisp, malty, and spicy like the smell hints at. Toasted malts with a taste of biscuit, crackers, hay, yeast, and cereal grains. Notes of apple and lemon fruit. A decent Noble hop backing adds some spicy earthy and grassy tastes. A very good and balanced classic Pilsener taste. The apple taste is a nice touch.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very crisp and smooth with a fairly drying finish.

Overall: A very good all around take on a Germain style Pilsener. Good bready malts with a nice soft fruit kick and hop spice.

Review from notes, had on tap at New Glarus.

A: Two Women was a light golden straw color, rather clear with a foamy white head on top. Decent retention with thin lacing down the sides.

S: Light grainy malt, a bit of sweetness, apple, lemon, and some earthy hops.

T: Light fruit flavors, lemon and apple, with some grainy and bready malt.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking and smooth.

O: A solid pilsener, always a fan of these easy drinking and tasty lagers.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium dark amber with 1/4 inch white foam. Almost see through. Very light malt smell - like a an ale trying to fight through the lager. Maybe mild corn too. Very mild light flavor, with a light hop. Everything in moderation. Flavorful lager, simple.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a crystal clear lighter amber color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger long at all. Just a little lacing. The aroma is nice: a little musty, bready, malts and biscuits. The taste is pretty good. Bready, some malts, touch of bitterness and dryness. Another good beer from them!

12oz bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours a translucent reddish golden amber that's a little bit on the darker side for a pilsener. Thin layer of white head that dissipates fairly fast. Fairly low carbonation, but consistent rising bubbles.

S- A little bit of bready malts, a hint of tea leaves and herbal hops, about average aroma strength. Smells like a typical pilsener. Not my favorite beer aroma, but smells pretty good for a German Pilsener.

T- Decent amount of bready malts mixed with some light herbal hops, finishes with a slight tea-like taste and some light hop bitterness. Tastes like a typical german lager.

M- Fairly light, easy drinking, nice carbonation, goes down easily.

O- Pilsener's aren't my favorite beer in the world, but this one was very well done for the style. For the style there was a decent amount of flavor and aroma and is much better then most of the mass-produced pilseners that tend to dominate the style. If you like lagers I definitely recommend trying this out, but not going out of your way to seek it.
