Poured a golden colour with a very sudsy head that disappeared quickly and left no discernable lacing. Smells of citrus and yeast. No real taste to it. Resembles bad bore water wtih carbonation and a bitter aftertaste. Actually, I've had better bore water than this beer. There's no real flavour, no body and no substance. Drinkable like bad bore water is drinkable... only if you boiled it. Probably should've boiled this. Malt Shovel, I'm ashamed of you! (456 characters)

The 150 Lashes has nothing that distinguishes itself from other pale ales. The beer poured a clear yellow with white head that is leaving a modest lace. Nothing real noticeable on the nose and taste is fairly standard. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a ok easy drinking beer. (313 characters)

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. (250 characters)

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. (299 characters)

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. (704 characters)

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 (777 characters)

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... (612 characters)

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. (368 characters)

345ml bottle, 03/08/15. Bright, straw colour with a disappointing, dull, off-white head which quickly disappeared but left traces of fine lacing. Aroma of .................grain......vegies......maybe? Light to medium sweetness, hint of bitterness. Just downed my last mouthful without paying attention to the palate. Sticky sulphur in the finish. Drinkable but not particularly enjoyable. 4. (392 characters)
