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.

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!!!

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.

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.

Dervock (932) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2009
Pours a rich golden colour. Slightly sweet honey aroma. Very light smooth beer with a dry finish, albeit with a definate honey flavour

ogivlado (7174) - 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.
