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.

Bottle. Golden and clear with a nice fruity aroma. Gentle sweetness and all round a pleasant drink. Poured with a small head and left no lacing. Nice.

Pours a rich golden colour. Slightly sweet honey aroma. Very light smooth beer with a dry finish, albeit with a definate honey flavour

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 22, 2009
Bottled(500ml). -Dark golden coloured, medium sized white head, quite odd and dry honeyish nose. Sweet malty, light hoppy herbal and surprisingly pleasant honey taste with notes of green apples in the finish. A bit unbalanced beer but also underrated.

5.0% honey beer, gold colour with a thin head, you can actually taste and smell the honey. Although not a favourite of mine it is very drinkable.

Extremes Honigaroma, ein wenig "wild". Geschmack dann gut restsüß. Honig dann auch im Nachgeschmack, dadurch ’nders’ bitter. Wenig Hopfen.

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.

ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours quite a dark gold for a beer of this style, with very little head. The aroma is a pleasant combination of honey and cinnamon. Initial grassy hops mix with a pervasive honey flavour, which lingers into the finish, and gives this beer a lasting smoothness. The honey also serves to coat the mouth in a most satisfying way. An unusual, yet very pleasant, beer.
