Poured from a bottle into a tall glass.

A: Very clear, and a darker orange color than usually seen in pilseners. Moderate amount of head, with some nice foam residues on the side of the glass.

S: Light smell, with some citrus and grain flavors coming through.

T: Malty finish. Nice and light. Slightly spicy.

M: Light-to-medium on the palate; heavier than most pilseners.

O: Very tasty beer - one of the better pilseners I've ever had.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsener glass.
A: Pours a clear yellow amber with moderate carbonation producing a 1/2 inch white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Soft and sweet caramel malt, toasted malt, and soft floral hops.
T: Very pleasant! Soft and subtly sweet caramel malt, nutty (hazelnut?), toasted grain, and a hint of floral hops.
M: Soft, smooth, and slightly oily feel. Mildly sticky sweet and mild hop bite. The carbonation persists, giving this a nice effervescence.
D: Very nice, especially for style. Excellent session brew.

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.
