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.

New Glarus Two Women Lager, 12 Fl. Oz.

Get ready for more pompous, overblown gasbaggery. Here comes the label copy: "Four thousand years before Christ, Sumerian women created the divine drink of beer. Viking women brewed in Norse society. European Ale Wives were so successful as cottage brewers they were taxed. Artisanal women lost their domination of the daily ritual of brewing during the Industrial Revolution. Today's brewing trade is controlled by men. The collaboration of two Craft companies both led by women, New Glarus Brewing and Weyermann Malting is unique. You hold the result "Two Women" a Classic Country Lager brewed with Weyermann's floor malted Bohemian malt and Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. A tempting and graceful classic lager found…Only in Wisconsin!"

This history of the role of women in brewing,leaves out one that still continues, and that is the brewer of sorghum-based homebrew in Africa. Let South African songbird Yvonne Chaka Chaka tell you all about it. (I hear this song about twice a night whenever we host African DJ events at the Blue Nile, which happens at least twice a month.)

Alright, enough, let's open and get to it.

Clear, amber coloring. Large, lush off-white head.

Classic Lager nose, cereal grains, low bitterness, small sweetness. All-malty goodness.

Taste: Clean, dry, and lightly malty. A hint of sweetness, gone in a wink, wrapped up with subtle hops. Slightly fruity, again, appearing for a minute, then whisked away. Quaffable, indeed. Simple, straightforward, with just enough flavor, to make it worth drinking.

I won't be returning to it, though. Not for me. I won't turn down a good "Classic Lager", but I won't go looking for any, either. My feelings on lagers have already been made plain.

Poured into a Pilsner Glass

Appearance - Bright Clear Orange with quite a bit of carbonation and a slightly brown 2 finger head. Spotty Lacing

Smell - Yeasts, Bread, Barley, Slight Lemon, and Malts. For a Pilsener, this one really doesn't have a grassy/earthy scent to it. Smells crisp and pleasant nonetheless!

Taste - Bready Yeasts, Lemon Zest, Floral Hops and Malts. The grassy aspect is in the flavor but not in an over-encompassing sense. Very balanced flavor and quite tasty!

Mouthfeel - While it's medium bodied, it's quite heavy for a Pilsener. Carbonation levels are perfect and give it a crisp and refreshing feel.

Overall - An excellent tasting Pilsener. If you're ever in Wisconsin, pick this up; You will not regret it

12 oz bottle, no bottled on date, poured into a nonic pint glass. Thanks to BFro for hooking me up with this.

A- Pours a clear amber color, topped with an inch of creamy white head, leaves tons of great lacing.

S- Nice floral hops, bready malt, has a bit of sweetness.

T- Sweet pale malts, a bit bready, floral hops, has some nice grain flavor and some bitterness.

M- Light bodied, good carbonation, smooth and slightly crisp feel.

O- A pretty nice pilsner, very drinkable, good choice for an easy drinking session beer.
