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.

aroma resembles something like honey and caramel malts, but a bit too shy. tastes like a bland english bitter. not too much on this one.

A basic Aroma, nicely demonstrates the honey content, a faint spice and moderate earthy background. In the Glass it is a genuinely light, clear honey colour with a small thin head. A pleasant, slightly carbonated palate, sticky, slightly oily. Tastes decent, fresh eathyness, moderate spice, sweet and floral and subtle but well integrated honey notes and mild hoppy malt. Bears a light, refreshing finish with some subtle toasty mouth feel. Highly drinkable stuff.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2015 The bottle is very beautiful, like most Wells. Of Dark Gold color very similar to honey color. Its White foam is small training and has a good texture remaining in the cup for a reasonable time. Gets pretty laces on the walls of glass. Your honey aroma is not really striking and my senses denotes metal too much. I could see some floral hops with notes of bread, a cereal malt and biscuit are confused. The flavor has a very light presence of honey, but little harmonized with the bread, malt and biscuit which refers middle malty sweetness and alcohol. The aftertaste shows the same feeling confused sweetness in a light bitterness. Frankly I expected much more of this bitter, but the result does not compromise either the point of not drinking with some pleasure. A median beer for their Wells sisters, but in a nice spot to drink on a hot day.

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.
