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.

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

At a tasting in "Sar Hamashkaot" in Ramat Gan, thanks tomer, bottle, pours golden yellow color without head, not sparkling, strong smell of hay, sweetish taste, carbonated, light body, flows, overall a great disappointment in every way.

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.

worldbeertaste (1735) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2011
Golden colour like honey. Mostly malt aroma little to no honey smell. Regular Malt taste with an element of sweetness. Little carbonation, watery with medium texture. A fruity aftertaste. Its drinkable but does not deliver the honey that is promised.

5ooml bottle, cellar cool. looks good, gold, with a tight white head. Bare hint of honey in the aroma, medium in every department, hint of honey in the flavour. Judging by the speil from Wells and Young above, they’ve put a lot of thought and effort into producing a quite boring beer.

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2011
500ml bottle. Poured a clear golden orange with a medium size, lasting creamy beige head and fairly uniform lacing. Slightly citric overall profile and metallic grainy hop flavour. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a short to medium length, dryish grainy finish.

pivnizub (9210) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle: Deep golden, almost clear, persistent creamy off-white layer, lazy carbonation; sweetish fruity-malty nose with a tinge of honey indeed; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, creamy MF; slightly increasing bitterness, combined with an - almost metallic - tartness in the finish. Neither...nor.......

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2011
A golden beer with a tight white head, which recedes slowly and leaves a slight lacing on the glass. The nose is of a lager-like malt character with just the faintest bit of honey, and nothing of hops. In the mouth the honey steps forward and soon takes over all the taste of the malts. There’s an unwelcomed chalky taste, that cardboard so familiar to mass produced beers, that grows on the finish. The mouth feel is thin and the forced carbonation is way too fizzy. But it’s drinkable, if not something to necessarily drink again.
