A : A two finger off-white head leaving a milky hot cocoa-like appearance on top, a centimeter thick. The body is honey-amber colored and 40% opaque.

S : Rich, roasted malts and pale hop with a hit of crisp green granny smith apple. The volume in the nose is medium to strong.

T : Bready and fruity. Grains rush up to meet the other flavors, giving a slight grit to the otherwise yeasty profile. The apple comes in at the end with a rich pucker and slight sweetness, and a bit of tartness from the skin. It almost finishes like a Redd's, but not overly sweet. It ends fairly bready. Belches are again, halved apples.

F : Light to medium bodied, with a crispness and light but appropriate carbonation. It ends clean.

O : I'd like to have a few more of these before knocking Hauenstein out of my top spot for #1 lager. It's not quite as refreshing but it is more flavorful. New Glarus has never made a beer I didn't like (yet). This is a fine lager. Why someone would drink a macro swill over this is beyond me. At least #2, if not #1 lager I've ever had (and I've had a lot).

Update : Gold color, wet hay aroma with cantaloupe rind. Flavors are of wet hay, caramel malts, a touch of faint green apple skin on the finish. Kind of a chalky feel, a nice semi-dry feel throughout. Overall, maybe a six pack would be in order this week. Not much more.

Why New Glarus would put Two Women Lager and Naked Lager in the same sampler pack is beyond me. There is so little difference between these beers and they aren't special in the slightest. There is far better beer in Wisconsin. Three Sheeps for example. They do different, tasty, special brews that pop. New Glarus is getting by on reputation, undeservedly.

Reviewed 8-1-15. Threshold beer glass. Failed to note bottle stamps, but no date.

Appearance: Amber with a little head and no visible carbonation. Nice ring of white lacing as it drinks down.

Aroma: Nice toasty (pilsner?) malt. Not much hop aroma to speak of. Talk of noble hops had me excited, but I'm not getting it.

Taste: There is something in common with spotted cow here, slightly sweet, less so than the Spotted Cow. Slight sweetness, with nice bittering at the end; lingers slightly.

Mouthfeel: Midweight; significant, perfect carbonation.

Overall: Nice; I like Boston Lager a little better. This is clearly well-crafted, but just kind of plain.

Malty sweet. Surprising more depth of malt flavor than a pilsner. Definitely drinks like a much darker beer than it really is. There is some not so pleasant sour on the finish.
