Murky and lightly carbonated. Bright peach and apricot flavors. Crisp and spicy finish. This beer is surprisingly lacking in aroma. I get basically nothing on the nose It reminds me heavily of whirlpool with the citrus turned down and the spice turned up. I think both of these beers would benefit from some residual sweetness.

Can poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Fully opaque yellow brown color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is pretty good and a full finger of lacing is left.

4.5 S: Very interesting. This comes out extremely herbal - chrysanthemums predominant then wildflowers and something along the like of lemongrass. That telltale earthy spiciness that rye does so well. Pithy grapefruit and orange peel. Excellent and complex.

4.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Big herbalness with all the flavors mentioned above - chrysanthemum, wildflower, lemongrass. Solid earthy spicy rye accompanies biscuit malts. Mild bitterness. Various fruit peels.

4.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Frothy creaminess and supremely smooth.

4.5 D: Really nice beer, I wish I bought more when I had the chance.

The One Claw Rye is a solid beer. It poured a pale yellow with white that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries enough pine and citrus to make it interesting. The taste is evenly balanced and easy to drink. The rye helps the beer to leave the pallet clean. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall I thought this was really good and could session the S out of this. Definitely worth a try.
