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.

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.

Jultsu (705) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2016
BBE 26.02.2017. Kuparinen väri, niukka vaahto. Tuoksu aika mitäänsanomaton, tyypillinen paskabritti. Suutuntuma laimean makea ylisokeroitu, ohut, tylppä, kohtuu heikko mutta juotava.

This is what happens when you let your missus choose your beer. Actually to be fair I was quite optimistic. This was short lived. Pouring revealed something similar to a poor euro lager. The scent and taste remind me of early non alcoholic beer from the late 80s. Apparently there’s some honey in here but the bitter after taste puts paid to that. Truly awful .

MarkoNm (2297) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 26, 2016
Pours a clear golden color, a bit darker shade perhaps, topped with a small and non-lasting white head. Malty aroma, mild with some honey notes way in the back. Medium bitterness in the taste with some bitter honey notes. Light body and in general average at best.

This is typical golden ale in appearance with a thin white head, continuous bubbles and splodgy lacing left on the side of the glass. The taste is mildly hoppy but what comes across most is the honey but not in an overburdening manner. The palate actually quite heavy and kind of syrupy and the sweet honey after taste is satisfying. Overall this is an excellent beer which I would buy again and recommend.

I_LUV_BEER (172) - - APR 29, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear deep golden colour with a medium off-white head leaving moderate lacing behind. Aroma is a subtle but nice combination of honey, hops and herbs. Taste is bitter-sweet with notes of honey and a pleasant slight bitter aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Very good and refreshing honey beer without being too sweet or sickly. Do not drink it too cold though! From personal experience I can say that this one is definitely best served slightly chilled but not cold to reveal and enjoy the honey notes in both the aroma and the taste!!!

Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an dry bitter taste, and an subtle sweety hints of honey. I remeber it sweeter when it was produced by Youngs in London.
