3.09/5  rDev +11.2%
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. (704 characters)

3.11/5  rDev +11.9%
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. (561 characters)

3.13/5  rDev +12.6%
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. (358 characters)
