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.

Golden amber colour with a white head. Somewhat malty but pretty much unexciting beer

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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012
0.5L clear bottle, from a cornshop in Kennington, London. Low lacing fine-bubbled blond head. Body is bright honey-golden. Smell of faint sourish-sweet malts and lightly skunked, grassy hops. Medium to light malt body. Fairly dry, with an an underlying sweetness of honeyed malts. Brief bitterness, lightly spiced and earthy. Mild bitter-sweet ending. Taste is ok, smells like a sunstruck beer.

Una volta la faceva Young e credo che la mettesse nelle bottiglie maron; era meglio di sicuro. Lightstruck mastodontico, in fondo in fondo un po’ di carattere mielato.

Sizzler80 (500) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 25, 2011
Gold, amber colour with a medium carbonation. Initial white head on the pour which fades away quite quickly. Aromas of freshly cut grass, hops and lemon. Dry on the palate with bitter lemon after taste. The aroma and flavour of honey enhances as you go but still not as intense as I expected. I found Waggle Dance trails away with a slight taste of smoke chips. Middle of the road for me.

50cl bottle from ABCbeers. Decent white head. Golden/blond pour. Nice enough beer but I was hoping for more honey in the taste/aroma

5.0% honey beer, gold colour with a thin head, you can actually taste and smell the honey. Although not a favourite of mine it is very drinkable.
