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.

Cristobal37 (765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2013
Pretty typical British dry ale. Don’t really smell or taste the honey. Perhaps at the very very end of the finish there is a hint of sweetness. Just needed to drink a nice dry ale after Liverpool beat ManU and this was on hand. Nothing too special.

Abijen (2467) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2013
Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells honey. Tastes little honey and pilsner like. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

mutz (898) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2013
Donkergeel, goede kraag. Ruikt bitter en naar honing. Smaakt als bittere pils met een lichte honingsmaak. Niet echt lekker.

Cantabrian (989) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 18, 2013
Now here’s a honey ale that has been as exciting as my first experience with real Saxon mead. Except for a fartsy whiff, this tastes like nothing. Water is much tastier and complex.

Imaena (2177) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - AUG 10, 2013
England: South Littleton. This is a pretty bland golden ale without much to take it over the edge.

(Falsche) Es hat eine orange-gelbe Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer leicht orangenen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma riecht nach Pfirsich und Honig. Der Geschmack ist sehr schlank, prickelnd und ganz leicht getreidig.

kapusil (1142) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 7, 2013
0.5l bottle. Dark golden/light amber body, white head. Aroma of bread, grains, honey and some floral hops. Taste of bread, honey and floral hops. The aftertaste is mostly light hoppy. Medium body, easy to drink. Nice one.

#23 - Waggledance... A refreshing a sweet beer, slightly lime flavour however. Nice in the sun I’m sure.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2013
Dunkles Gold mit feinporigem Schaum. Leichte Hefenote und ein kaum vernehmbares Honigaroma. Malziger Geschmack mit etwas Honig, erstaunlich trocken und herb ausklingend. Würde ich mir kein zweites Mal gönnen…
