Deep, clear amber gold color with good white cap and lacing.

Aroma of caramel, toffeeish malt with a clean wisp of floral hops.

Nice malty flavor upfront sprinkled with a touch of hop spice. Very even malt flavor that manages to be deep like it contains some darker malt yet is completely absent of any roasted malt bitterness. Hops play a part but it's a diminutive role being present without asserting itself. Clean finish with a dry resolve.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Good effort here and a solid score. Rich malt is the main thing and it remains on tract without branching off into sweetness or roasty bitterness, very straight forward and true to course.

June 14th, 2015 - New Glarus' Two Women is one of the tangiest and most yogurt-like beers I have ever had. Even on the nose it has clear notes of greek yogurt and tzaziki sauce. And on the flavor the bacillus tang is we;; defamed. with a light palate and a crystal clear and quenching body.

Seems more like a Marzen than a Helles to me, but clearly a well made lager regardless. Pours a clear, dark golden color, almost amber, with nice white head. Crisp and floral at first with a nice malty sweetness in the finish. Reminds me of Hofbrau's Oktoberfest. Wish I could get this outside of Wisconsin because it would probably always have a place in my fridge. Cheers New Glarus!

Pours a nice golden color. The head is 1 finger, white and frothy. The retention is average.
The nose is slightly sweet. A bit malty. Some floral.
Taste - Really tasty. Nice floral flavor. Slight tart. Slight sweet.
Body is quite good, and the beer does linger on the palate.
This is a solid offering from New Glarus, and if you can get it (go to Wisconsin or trade) do so.

Got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 1/5/2018. Pours slightly hazy deep golden/amber color with a 1 finger dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aroma of big cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent Munich helles! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Nicely rich clean Pils malt showcase, with solid noble hop presence/balance. A very enjoyable offering, and perfect style example.

Another decent offering from NG. Here goes:

A: Very good. Pours a clear copper color. Leaves a lingering head and substantial amounts of lacing. Really love the clear copper color.

S: Pretty one-dimensional. Bready biscuit from the yeast. Maybe a tinge of amber malt. Overall light scents

T: Follows the nose, but much more robust. Biscuit with caramel malt. Very, very refreshing. Dangerously drinkable.

F: Best thing about NG beers is their mouthfeel. Very smooth and crisp. Perfection on the palate.

O: Good beer. Liked Spotted Cow more, but this one is also good.
