2.9/5  rDev -3.3%

A - Poured a golden straw colour with two fingered head that laces very well.

S - Fruity with orange/ lemonade aromas almost like a shandy

T - Grainy, malt and light hops with citrus fruits but a little bitter and bland on the finish.

M - light/Medium bodied with light carbonation

O - Just an average beer that is very pleasant to drink but lacks a real flavour punch that a pale ale should have. Just average.

Pours pale amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows restrained floral and fruity notes along with faint grainy malt.
Flavours include sweet light malt with grainy notes and a soft, light bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.
Pretty dumbed down.

Pours a bright golden color with absolutely no head, even when poured straight into the glass. Smells watery, and a little grassy. Tastes pretty clean, very little sweetness, very little bitterness, finishes...watery. Mouthfeel, again, watery. Overall, it's watery. I expected more from Malt Shovel.

A- Typical almost amber colour. Quite decent carbonation with a miniscule head and no lacing. Not too bad.

S- Faint fruity smell. Grapefruit and citrus. Certainly not robust but it actually smells pretty good.

T- Terribly misleading aroma. The palate is quite light and thin. It's just a slight sweetness followed by extremely faint hops. Unfortunately, POR lurks on the back.. Minus points of that.

M- Light, but pleasantly so. Carbonation level is good and adds some kick.

O- Malt Shovel Brewery were clearly going for refreshment over taste here. That said, it's not entirely a flat affair, this beer does have it's good points. I'd be lying if I said this wasn't altogether underwhelming, though.

3/5  rDev 0%

Appearance - Golden straw colour, light carbonation, low head retention, good clarity

Smell - Light Malt, Banana, Kiwi, mandarin.. Overall fruity, not a strong aroma

Taste - Light carbonation, light hops, malt sweetness, mild fruit flavours. Little after-taste

Mouthfeel - low/medium weight with light carbonation.

Drinkability - Light beer of which you could drink a few, needs more carbonation to make it more drinkable. A drink to guzzle on a hot day

Overall - Not a bad beer, but generally bland and uninspiring

Printed on the side of the bottle :
A clean finishing, Australian-style cloudy pale ale for cracking refreshment. Malted what adds to it's refreshing character and a concoction of hops creates fruity aromas with hints of passion fruit, grapefruit & citrus

330 ml bottle poured into a goblet...

A- deep amber with a light head that dissipates quickly.

S- a bit of hops and citrus.

T- a bit of an unsweetened tea taste with a hoppy bitterness not too unpleasant, but there are definitely finer examples of this style out there.

MF- this beer doses have a nice mouthfeel to it. It has a fair amount of balance that finishes nice.

O- this brand is widely available in Australia, but its the first time I've seen this Stow Away IPA offered. This beer is quite bold and flavorful. I think it is slightly better than your average beer available here. Its worth a try...

On-tap at the Portland Brewhouse.

A: Served a pale golden color with a decent head and some lacing.

S: Not much here, only a light grain aroma with a hint of citrus.

T: Pretty bland, just a bit of citrus and sweetness with a mild bitterness.

F: Light body, watery with no character.

O: First bummer from the Malt Shovel people.
This could pass for a Coors Light.
