The Cider Lab Royal Gala Apple Cider

The Cider Lab Royal Gala Apple Cider is the last of three ciders in their range. As the name sug­gests, it’s made with Royal Gala apples, an apple known for its mel­low sweet­ness and pop­u­lar in New Zealand and Australia.

The cider is a trans­lu­cent very pale straw col­our with a tart cider nose and mod­er­ate car­bon­a­tion. Served chilled the mild sweet­ness of Royal Gala apples comes through in the head with a slight acid­ity devel­op­ing in the body fin­ished by a lightly dry and crisp apple fla­vour. Overall, the fla­vour of the cider is light and bright, recall­ing the aro­mat­ic sweet­ness and crisp­ness of Royal Gala apples.

While the Packham Pear Cider remains our favour­ite, this cider impresses us with its cel­eb­ra­tion of the dis­tinct fla­vours of Royal Gala apples.

The under­side of the back label fea­tures a beau­ti­ful water­col­our of Royal Gala apples that can be seen through the cider.

This bottle of The Cider Lab Royal Gala Apple Cider con­tained 330 ml. It was bottled in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
