3/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy pale straw hue which leaves a fast vanishing two finger head and no lacing,the smell is malted wheat,herbal hops and light citrus,the mouthfeel is light bodied and average with tastes of orange rind,malted wheat,candy,a touch of lemon and finished with a barley sugar sweetness and overall its a little to similar to Coopers Pale Ale but has more citrus zest to it and to be honest with my high standards i was expecting alot more from this and would drink over CPA but wouldnt buy myself for a session brew as its price for quality distracts me cheers.

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.

3.11/5  rDev +9.5%
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.

3.13/5  rDev +10.2%
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.
