(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear golden brown body with a thick beige head of cream that is supported by strands of bubbles.

S- The clean aroma has light hint of toasted malt

T- The slight toasted malt note leads to a tart hint in the finish but is otherwise very clean.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a creamy fizz finish.

O- This beer is very clean with hints of malt and hops but not much else.

Prior to posting this I read there was 666 ratings. Oooh, scary!

This pours a rich caramel color with generous foam. It has a light malty-sweet caramel aroma that gives way to a delicately bodied slightly sweet ale with a hint of caramel. Two Women is a pleasing session ale. I did not think of this as a pilsner while sipping, however.

12oz bottle into a tulip/pint glass.

Pours a dark copper color with a big 2 finger head with great lacing. Looks morelike an IPA than a Pils. Real attractive pour. The smell is big on crisp malts and hops, definitely showing this is not an IPA! The taste is very malt forward and crisp, but the Noble hops show up too on the back end. Very clean and easy drinking. Real enjoyable pilsner with floral and herbal tones. Lighter side of medium bodied, mild carbonation.

Overall a superb pils. One of the best I've ever had.

A: Pored into a standard pint glass it was poured with about an inch of head on it, but it quickly receeded and left a light chunky egg shell colored foam around the edge and sides. The liquid a briliantly clear light copper color.

S: Strong spicey noble and earthy hops plume off the top with an underlying malty bready grainy malt aroma.

T: Flavor is on the malt side but the bitterness is noticable and distinct. There is a sweetness that is coming through in the form of a muffiny flavor. The hops come though in the end with the noble spicey flavor and leave the palet with a clean finish.

M: Very light body with low to moderate carbonation.

O: A crisp, clean, hoppy german lager. NG does the style well, but personally I like the sweetness to be a little more subdued. Its not over powering by any means, just a personal preference on the style being more balanced.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Clear, light brownish yellow, with some more yellow highlights. Darker than expected. Frothy white head sticks around a 1/2 finger and produces some good rings of lacing.

S- Crisp straw malt. Bit of a spice. Smaller bit of skunk.

T- Really clean and very subtle straw malt flavor, with a bit of a grassy hop character.

M- Light body and the finish is very clean. A beer made for quaffing.

O- This is a solid lager. No characteristics make it stick out as amazing, but it was a good drink.
