50cl bottle from a gift selection box. A typical English golden ale; pale amber with a ring of white head; slightly musty aroma; citrusy taste; and a crisp finish. No better or worse than the rest.

Rating of From the Noteboook Kitiwake Golden Ale:
(Bottle) Clear golden with slight white head. Lovely floral tangy aroma. Light body with nice bright carbonation. Light and sweet malt flavour with lovely tangy and hoppy notes. A very nice beer. [It took me w while to track this down before adding it: http://www.fromthenotebook.co.uk/ and it is not at all obvious to me that these are the same beer, but I have not done a side by side testing.]
Earlier Rating of Allendale Golden Plover: 9/22/2012 Total Score: 3
(bottle) Golden, little head. Aroma had mild hints of tea. Light body, medium carbonation. Flavour starts with pleasant caramel notes and is mildly bitter. Overall, pleasant easy drinking.
