345ml bottle poured into pint glass 8/22/12 thanks Mikey for hauling this around the world for me
-from notes

A very pale golden yellow with lots of bubbles but just a short lived thin film that leaves no lace

S faint tropical notes with some bread, honey and caramel, I get just a little bubblegum as it warms

T not very far from the smell at all, I get a little thrills gum I didn't smell, its a soapy gum for all you Aussies

M light bodied with perhaps too much carbonation, its a little foamy

O a pretty basic brew but its easy enough too drink, not the strongest smell and taste but whats there I like

pretty light beer perhaps well suited for a hot Aussie summer, thanks again Mikey

I never actually saw any ratings for this one before I took my notes and I'm surprised its rated this low, I wasn't blown away by any means but a 2.78 average? seems pretty low

I am a fan of this Brewery for a variety of reasons , so probably mark them a little higher than others producing the same beer.
that said this is one of the weaker beers.
It looks ok and smells ok but just tastes a bit plain.
English Pale Ale seems to be a hodge podge of potential flavours , and this doesnt' seem to capture any in particular , and certainly not any well.
Drinkable but in racing parlance , prefer others

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

a) Straw coloured, haze-free, good bubbling and decent lace.

s) Grain and apple aromas. Slight funky note of damp hay.

t) Husky note, slight honey, restrained hops, almost Kolsch-like in delicate grain profile.

m) Light, spritzig

o) Refreshing ale, definitely in the class of "Aussie Pale" (but not "Pacific Ale"). A good sessionable, summer ale.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Hazy light golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Good head retention.

Dusty, lightly malty aroma with a hint of earthy but indescript hop. Nothing special.

Light pale malt flavour with some serious graininess. Very mild bitterness and a touch of earthy, slightly metallic hops. What a waste of malt and hops.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

This is not a good pale ale. In an age where craft brewing is moving ahead, a beer like this is pseudo-craft taking us 10 years backwards. Bring back the old Golden Ale brewed in Camperdown I say.

Another pale ale in Australia. The beer arrived a dark yellow ale-like color with wispy white foam. Biscuit malt, slightly toasted, with some tropical fruit and a little bitterness in the noise. A little flat on the palate as the malt flashes by. The hops are are more lemony citrus as opposed to bitter at the end. OK as far as Aussie pale ales go.

3.03/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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 +0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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
