Not a lot to write about this one.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass. Very pretty, copper colored, crystal clear, very carbonated. Outstanding head retention and lacing.

Smells plain. Slight grassy, earthy notes on the nose and palate. Typical sulfur notes like most lagers. Really refreshing, better than most lagers. Not very remarkable otherwise. Not bad by any means, great summer beer.

From a 12oz bottle into my Darkness snifter for effect.

Pours a surprisingly dark gold, almost amber. Pilsner? Not so much. Crystal clear. Produced a very nice two-finger, eggshell white. Great retention and lacing.

Wonderful malt profile. Toasted bread/biscuit, a hint of caramel. Well done hop backing lends an earthy/grassy quality. Very nice smelling lager, one of the best I've seen.

Follows the nose. Layers of toasty malt and cooked cereal notes. I love the noble hop backing that adds just enough depth and a hint of bitterness, but the all malt profile is what stands out here.

Surprisingly light in body for the color and amount of flavor. It is like a Pilsner in body, but an Amber in taste. Great carbonation, and super drinkable.

Overall I find this to be an exceptional lager, one of the better I've had. It's not a Pilsner, but it's not an Amber either. This is what a good lager should be. Drinkable, but with a few layers of flavor. Many lagers are very one-dimensional, but not Two Women. I'm not a huge Pilsner or even Amber Lager fan, but this one kinda changes that. I would definitely drink this one again; would love to try it on tap. Recommended to any who can get it. Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass
A: Pours a copper orange with a thin head and quite a few bubbles.
S: Rich aromas of toasted malt, caramel, and a bit of grass.
T: Again very rich with toasted grain, caramel, and a long bready finish. Quite tasty.
M: Medium-bodied, crisp and a nice amount of carbonation.
O: This is really tasty and very well made. Definitely enjoyed it a lot.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Color is a nice copper and head is medium thickness but has staying power.
Odor is pretty grainy. Can smell the malted barley.
Taste is relatively light and refreshing overall. Only a little hops. Mostly malt.
Mouth feel is light and carbonated.
Overall, a classic lager beer. Pretty well done.
