Pours a glassy, clear coppery bronze color, with copious bubbles and a snapping, crackling head of sea foam whiteness.

Nose is fresh, fresher, freshest, the kind of aroma you'd find in any given glass of fresh German pils at any good German pub. Simple, grain-leaning, earthy, with a slight hint of sweetness and a small but supportive mineral presence.

Simple of flavor, and authentic too. Slight shades of caramel and herbal tea, earthy/grainy in focus, biscuit-like core, generous green apple flavor, and a super, almost grape candy-like sweetness that gives the beer more depth than your typical tossed-off U.S.-brewed German-style pils.

Smooth and even a little sticky, while staying buoyant and energetic thanks to pleasantly prickly carbonation.

It's way solid. Two Women is yet another quality addition to the large and usually very impressive New Glarus roster. I like when they get more experimental than this, but they also do sessionable, traditional beers the right way 99% of the time.

I think bottle is still from a trade with sonoma01 Thanks!

Pours a clear dark gold with a big pillowy off white head with good lacing and retention.

Tons of biscuity malt in the nose with a little bit of hop spice.

Lots of nutty biscuity malt in the flavor too before finishes with spice and pepper on the back end.

Very light and refreshing with good carbonation.

Yet again NG delivers on a traditional style. I wish the hop bite were a little crisper at the end, but still a good example that lighter beers can have flavor too.

I visited a friend up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and of course during the time of my stay it was mandatory to drink ONLY Wisconsin-brewed beers. This one was among a standard New Glarus mix-and-match twelve pack, and I would have to say it was decent but not among the best of the pack.

I would rank it higher than the Spotted Cow but lower than the Fat Squirrel, but I think that it really because I am more of a fan of darker brews anyway. With that being said, there are some good things Two Women has going for it - chief among them being its smoothness.

It is pleasant-tasting enough that you can almost not notice that you have drank 10 of them in just about an hour’s time. I imagine if you are a big lager fan then this one would hit the spot nicely.

Poured a crystal clear amber with nice head. Aroma of toasted bread with some floral-ness from Hallertau hops. Well balanced flavor of malt complexity toasted grain with a hint of sweetness from the malt. Just enough bitterness to balance. Very smooth, a great session beer!

Poured into a pint glass, the beer gave a generous white head on top of its gold color. A mild aroma was present which would best be described as malty. The initial taste was slightly hoppy with a smooth but slight wheat flavor. Made in the style of a pilsener, there is not going to be anything to knock the socks off of most beer drinkers aside from the smoothness. It is a gateway type beer for non-craft beer drinking. It is certainly better than a macro. The middle of the road feeling I get from this beer makes me miss New Glarus Stone Soup.

poured into a pint glass

appearance: dark amber with a 1" white foamy head

aroma: soft nose of cider/apple and yeast

palate: oh so smooth. light carbonation, milky sweet and medium bodied. goes down very nicely

taste: great pilsener flavors with some light fruity backgrounds

overall: honestly, im not a huge fan of pilsener styles, but i can recognize quality when i come across it. this is a great brew and a solid choice at any time. goes down very easy, but enough flavor to satisfy. another great one by NG!
