Unusual name, unusual beer! The “Waggle Dance” is the movement a bee performs to alert the hive to a source of nectar. The Waggle Dance beer is a beautifully balanced, sneakily seductive, golden coloured beer. it is popular both as a cask ale (Alc. 4.0% Vol.) and in 500ml bottle (Alc. 5.0% Vol.) across a wide range of beer lovers both male and female and of all (legal) drinking ages. A striking pump clip and bottle label designs ensure high awareness to Waggle Dance amongst drinkers in both the On- and Off-Trade “Amber beer with a touch of honey on the nose and palate. The sweetness is balanced by a healthy dose of hops to provide the bitterness that gives a wonderfully delicate flavour.” Pale Ale and Crystal malts and British Fuggle and Golding hops, together with South American honey, combine perfectly to create this delicious golden ale with a superb honey aroma.

500ml bottle - Golden amber with a soft white head. Faint aroma of honey, refreshing on the palate with a balance of sweetness from the honey and bitterness from the hops. Not as honeyed as some I’ve had, especially as the honey is the main selling point on this.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale deep golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, caramel, honey and grassy hops. Taste is exactly the same, maybe a little more honey and bread. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a thin, oily texture. A bittersweet grainy finish. A little thin but overall average.

Malty aroma, with just a faint hint of honey on the finish. Tastes too macro for my liking.

Floral, malty aroma. Flavours similarly floral, not too sweet but a definite honey flavour. A little break. OK.

AdiBeer (2286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Aroma: light honey, grain and bread malts. Appearance: clear gold small, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, soft carbonation, grain and bread malts again. Overall: boring Golden Ale. Bottle at The Porter, Bath.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 500ml bottle served in a Pint glass. A: First of all, nice transparent bottle. Nice bottle art. Pours a dark yellow (honey like) clear color forming a big bubbled light yellow color. Low retention and some lacings left S: Sweet honey in the nose. Metallic too. Sweet malts and some floral hops. Honey is not overwhelming. A bit of alcohol in the very end T: Follows the nose, sweet honey and caramel malts upfront. Metallic. Flowery hops and yeasts. Mild hoppy bitter end M: Light body and medium carbonation. Good smooth mouthfeel. Sweet upfront and mild bitter aftertaste O: Easy drinking beer. Despite of its sweetness, a pleasant session beer [ BA Review @ 7/21/2012 ]

Bottle - golden with a bubbly white head which fades to a ring. Very weak lacing. Aroma of honey, flowers and lemon. Taste of honey, grass, malts, slightly floral. Light body, high carbonation. There’s definitely honey in this beer but really it doesn’t make it especially good, which is a shame.
