12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Thanks to storminspank for this.

A: Medium copper color with great clarity. One finger white head with ok retention and some lacing.

S: Very grainy. Lots of malts. Some corn and yeast.

T: Again, very grainy and malty. Some big lemon notes. Corn and yeast.

M: Light body. Medium high carbonation. Crisp. Slightly dry.

O: It's alright. Not a style I like. There's nothing bad or off about it.

Pours light copper with a two finger white foam head which does not last very long. Smells of cooked corn, yeast, grain, and hops. Smells slightly sour which is off putting.

The taste has corn, yeast, grain, and is somewhat sour. The sourness is not as bad as from the smell, but is still unwelcome.

Light bodied, high carbonation, has a sour aftertaste. Not much to my liking. too sour, and the yeast smell and taste are a bit too strong. I will pass on this in the future.

Picked up a single of this brew across the river recently. We've sampled some very good lagers lately, & New Glarus makes some fine brews. Winner? Let's hope so. Split the 12 oz. bottle with my wife, who is watching "Say Yes to the Dress." I believe I've lost 5 IQ points that I can't spare just by being in the same room as these, ah, people.

Anyways, the beer is a nice copper piping, before it's ever seen a torch. Nose it almost 100% yeast - this might be the yeastiest-smellin' brew ever. OK, not quite all, there's a bit of spiciness present too. Ehhhh.

Two Women Lager is better than the nose would lead one to believe. The yeast lends a nice spicey shot, twining with the hops to make them indistinguishable. Bready, grassy, with fleeting melon. Finish is clean & bright, like a good green apple. Crisp & fine as a pils ought to be, & goes down like water. Which it mostly is. Duh.

This doesn't make me want to roll in it, but a nice pils & a good beer. I would, & have, ordered this in WI when it was the best thing on the menu, & would be pleased to do so again. A well-crafted lager.
