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 (1578) - Dorking, 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 (938) - 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.
