COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells honey. Tastes little honey and pilsner like. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

princepurple (22) - wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
A basic Aroma, nicely demonstrates the honey content, a faint spice and moderate earthy background. In the Glass it is a genuinely light, clear honey colour with a small thin head. A pleasant, slightly carbonated palate, sticky, slightly oily. Tastes decent, fresh eathyness, moderate spice, sweet and floral and subtle but well integrated honey notes and mild hoppy malt. Bears a light, refreshing finish with some subtle toasty mouth feel. Highly drinkable stuff.

AGCostaNeves (69) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2015
The bottle is beautiful like most Wells. Has a dark gold color (such as honey) and a foam forming medium and remains in the cup for a reasonable time. Your honey aroma is not as striking, perhaps too metallic, some floral hops, bread notes, malt and cereal biscoite confused. Its taste has a light presence of honey, but little harmonized with the bread, malt and biscuit which brings a sweetness through malted with the presence of alcohol. In the aftertaste the same feeling is present with confusing sweetness and a slight bitterness. Much expected this bitter, but does not compromise so much that not drinking with some pleasure. The beer has its taste and people should learn to appreciate the quality and not the quantity.   A median of beer for their Wells sisters, but in a nice spot to drink.

500ml bottle - Golden amber with a soft white head. Faint aroma of honey, refreshing on the palate with a balance of sweetness from the honey and bitterness from the hops. Not as honeyed as some I’ve had, especially as the honey is the main selling point on this.

Towey1989 (525) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale deep golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, caramel, honey and grassy hops. Taste is exactly the same, maybe a little more honey and bread. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a thin, oily texture. A bittersweet grainy finish. A little thin but overall average.

Malty aroma, with just a faint hint of honey on the finish. Tastes too macro for my liking.
