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.

olliejobbins (825) - 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.

pictoman (547) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Poured from a 500mL bottle. Clear, pale yellow, with dissipating white head. Sour yeasty aroma with definite skunk. Grainy malt flavour with hint of honey, but tastes very watered down and disappointing.

Sweet and slightly creamy. Definitely taste the honey. Slightly heavy for a golden ale though

Beersiveknown (3071) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle from Hockey Club, Cookstown. Old bottle, clear glas-was worried it’d be stale and lightstruck but thankfully neither. Slightly musty earthy hops on nose with robust malt body, a good bitter middle and honey sweetness in finish. Good level of carbonation forming fluffy off-white head.
