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.

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.

(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a thick and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly doughy pale malty aroma with traces of honey and grassy hops. Slightly bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Doughy malt character with a shy touch of honey and notes of grassy hops towards the dry and slightly bitter finish. 26.XII.10

At a tasting, thanks tomer: sweetish malt, grain, very weak honey notes, some earthy-herbal notes, sweet hay and barnyard, quite boring.

At a tasting, thanks dad, smallish head, clear medium deep gold colour, aroma of hay, tobbaco and peanut, flavour of peanuts, stones with a coarse bitterness and a weird unpleasant aftertaste. Not too good.

A dull beer, sweet and one dimensional. Sweet malty aroma. Similar flavour, sadly lacking balance.

douglas88 (6690) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle from Tesco. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is all honey and yeast. A decent flavor; some honey, light spicy hops, oddly bitter at times, sweet and dry. OK.

An excellent example of a honey ale, not too sweet and a nice subtle aroma, probably one of the best examplke of this kind of ale
