COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

It is a interesting beer, but you cannot feel the taste of honey. There is a balanced aftertaste with tendence to bitter.

Kavu (2235) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2013
0,5l bottle from Spar @ Stansted airport. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts with some artificial honey. Flavor is malts with artificial honey with some proper honey in the finish. Strange. Not really that good.

stevoj (2157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2013
Flat, dry finish on subdued taste. Nice aroma, and looks great, but not much else. Slightly sweetand some hop bitterness, but there’s better to be had....

wimpyjoe (3900) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2013
Golden ale with little head on it. This has plenty of lager qualities including aroma and texture, although the sweetness of the honey accounts for some of this.

olliejobbins (789) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
500ml bottle. Despite the name, no honey on the nose or palate so was rather disappointed. Yes it’s a reasonable bitter but as i expected honey and got nothing i cannot rate it highly.
