12 oz. pour at Holy Grale. Called "Pays d’Auge Cidre" without the "du Lion" business. Aroma: Slightly musty apple skins; moderate bittersweet apple juice; light oak. Appearance: Hazy light caramel color with a sticky bone head (Head! In a cider!) that eventually settles into a skin. Flavor: Mustiness from the nose less noticeable; bittersweet apple juice frames most of the taste; the finish is mostly dry and oaky. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: My highest rated cider yet; maybe I’m just a cider noob, but I would have liked to get a little more from the other varieties of apples at play, especially some more acidic/tart qualities.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Hazy straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of light floral notes, apples. Tastes of apples, light floral notes, subtle tartness. Light body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty tasty French cider.

Pour on tap at Town Hall, clear golden pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of creamy fruit, apple, some slight bready notes into a bit of earth, some spice notes with more apple skins. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, some earth into some creamy vanilla, apple comes through with some sweetness, finishing slightly sweet.

Bottle. Hazy golden color, champagne bubbles. Nice aroma of barnyard funk and apple skins. Taste is tarty, peppery apple. Tasty.

Draft sample. Poured hazy dark amber color with a minimal white head that diminished slowly with good legs. Moderate aroma of sweet apple. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium floral apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, mildly tart apples, apple skin, floral notes, a soapy feel, a bit better than I expected.

phaleslu (7536) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Draft at Dutch’s, served in a snifter. Good thing a couple others already rated this from here because searching "pays d’auge" brings up way more than I anticipated it would. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a small, barely off-white head. Notes of mild, sweet apples - not really tart at all - with a Sprite-like soda sweetness, florals, and light musty funk. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet, barely funky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good sipping cider.

b3shine (6570) - Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent gold with very thin white head that quickly dissipates entirely. Smells solid; good apples with a well-balanced touch of sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel and a touch of tartness. A good cider, especially for not being dry.

DrSilverworm (8540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s... 1st pour from the keg. Totally hazy orange color. Pours with a big off-white head, that quickly fades to nothing. Cool bright sweet yellow apple in the nose. Something funny and floral about the taste, but it’s pretty pleasant overall. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice vanilla notes, apple skin, light mustiness. Moderate sweet taste, nice light bit of tart. Great, refreshing cider! I enjoyed it much more than I expected to, more my style.

Tap. Very slightly hazy light gold pour with a small head. Apples but not very tart at all. Soft on the palate. Light funk. Decent cider.
