12 oz. bottle.

Medium copper body. Clear and clean. Half inch of creamy, off-white head. Some lacing. Bready, biscuity malts mix with honey and grassy, slightly herbal, hops.

Toasted malt up front. Sweetish, biscuity bread malt settles in. Moderately bitter, grassy, noble hops blend in smoothly. Hint of honey near the clean, crisp finish. Lingering vegetal hops and biscuit malt. Moderate body, with a nice, crisp feel. A very well-made, easy drinking lager.

A: Clear copper in color. Forms a small off white head that quickly reduces to nothing but a thin ring around the edges. Some very light lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly malts: whole-wheat bread, toast and a little caramel. Some light, grassy, European hops.

T: Very nice. A blend of light caramel malts and a very smooth toastiness. Very mild sweetness and a pleasant nuttiness. Light, but noticeable, grassy hops on the finish. Very nice.

M: On the lighter side of medium with appropriate carbonation and a light bitterness.

O: The flavor on this one is stunningly good. Very easy drinker and a far better than average beer.

The bottle of Two Women Lager pours a very dark golden to copper color with a big cap of foam. The aroma is a nice mixture of malts, like a basket of bread. A little metallic twinge is mixed in. The beer is smooth, but still light on the palate. The bread malt mixes with a hint of caramel to produce a very pleasant flavor. I really enjoy the way that the different malts in this beer combine to produce grainy flavors. The bitter, earthy hops at the end provide just the right amount of balance to the malt. Another well made beer from the folks in Wisconsin.

Thanks to Crossovert for this one

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a DFH shaped pint glass.

The beer pours a crystal clear dark straw color that borders on copper. An average pour yields a huge foamy white head that recedes very slowly, leaving behind a small white cap that lasts the remainder of the session, and a respectable amount of lacing.

The nose is a nice mixture of bready, grainy malts and a nice noble hop aroma. The hop use is fairly close to traditional examples of the style, not heavy handed like many American versions of the style tend to be. The nose is fairly clean and straight forward, not overly complex; exactly what you would expect from the style.

The flavor is very much like the nose. Clean and crisp, restrained use of the hops, just a tinge of bitterness on the back of the tongue. The malt profile is bready and grainy with just a slight sweetness. Moderately carbonated and light bodied, this is a very easy drinking beer

Overall, I am quite impressed with this beer. Very easy to drink, and just flavorful enough to keep you interested, terrific summer beer.

Poured a medium brown into my glass, with a healthy head, and a pronounced pilsener aroma: Hoppy and bright. It is darker than I expected for a Pilsener.

The flavor is not overly complex, with a little bit of grass and grain coming through. This is what your dad thought a good beer tasted like.

A very drinkable, if unremarkable beer.

Clear and bright, golden brown and a short, quick head , leaving behind a very slight bit of lacing. Cut grass, herbal essence and wet paper in the nose. Taste is grassy with a pinch of salt, biscuit-y and sweet briefly and then sudden sharp dryness of the hop oil...finishes with a nice bitterness. Mouth is slick, carbonation is there, creating a smooth coating.

This is a very nice pilsener that went down very easy. I could and will have a session with a half rack of these in the summer. The label is cool too. New Glarus hit another German style out of the park!

12 ouncer into DFH shaped pint. Thanks, Chris!

A: Pours a darker than expected clear copper color with three fingers of off-white head that faded into a thick film. Decent lace.
S: Dominant notes of lager yeast, clean grains, and spicy, peppery hops. Bready and crisp smelling.
T: Bready like the nose with grainy malt flavors and clean flavors of peppery hops. The finish is a touch on the sweet side and has a hint of caramel and honey.
M: Crisp light bodied with a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Carbonation is ample and bubbly.
O: Easy to drink but a little bit sweeter than my favorites. A great drinking beer though, thanks again Chris.
