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.

Dourada, com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma cítrico e mel. Sabor de frutas amarelas, com médio amargor e final seco. Amargor com media persistência o final. Boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (1461) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle @ the Bedford Arms, Bedford. A slightly hazy and heavily carbonated mid gold. Aroma of honey, silverware and PVC. Taste is a bland bittersweet mess. The bubbles are nice, I can pretend I’m a fish. Inoffensive but pointless ’honey ale’. Some beers have thrived under the Wells & Youngs merger. Some have not. This has not.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in Wakefield. Overly sweet with the added honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Standard golden honey colour. Very clear. Tinge of honey aroma. Honey taste doesn't do it justice. Tastes a bit plastic. Great name though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sulawang (728) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2014
Visual: Pours cloudy marmalade orange with a small creamy dissipating head, thin ringed retention, some sticky lacing, not much activity other than few bubbles surfacing. Nose: honey and a bit of malts, but otherwise muted (lvl-2)-pungency Attack: crisp sweet Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) barley malt, mild caramel Finish: hoppy dry-rough, honey aftertaste, burpy. Summary: Surprisingly, this one is quite bland, almost a meal beer (as in not much flavour, just something crisp to clean the palate). Quite disappointing.

guzgorog (479) - FRANCE - APR 8, 2014
Blonde dorée avec peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence. Nez de malts et de miel, légèrement odeur de pins. En bouche, l’attaque est sur le miel, la texture est d’abord légère puis sirupeuse, faible carbonation, la finale est très légèrement amère. Pas exceptionnel mais pas mauvais.

dogbomb (1070) - ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Golden with a slight haze and a bubbly white head. Nose is light lemons and bags of honey! Taste is like honey-glazed hops! Light lemon wrapped in oozing honey. It’s an easy, tasty drinker. Could almost get away with being a touch sweeter and "honey-ier".

Extremes Honigaroma, ein wenig "wild". Geschmack dann gut restsüß. Honig dann auch im Nachgeschmack, dadurch ’nders’ bitter. Wenig Hopfen.

SarkyNorthener (3066) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of honey and some malts. Taste is a dash of honey, citrus, light malts and a hint of hop bitterness. OK beer although I am not sure about the honey.
