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.

Abijen (2197) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - AUG 27, 2013
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.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
500ml Bottle from Bargain Booze, New Mills, Derbyshire. Orange/amber with no head to report. Sugary honey in aroma and too prominent in taste. Nice concept but for me not one that works.

aroma resembles something like honey and caramel malts, but a bit too shy. tastes like a bland english bitter. not too much on this one.

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.
