COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Production moved from Youngs to Wells & Youngs in October 2006.
Renamed Wells Waggledance in mid 2008
Ingredients: Pale ale and crystal malt, Fuggle and Golding hops together with South American honey.
The Waggle Dance is a movement a bee performs to alert the hive of a source of nectar.
Waggle Dance is brewed with a touch of honey which gives it a taste of summer no matter when you raise a glass.

Cask in the Black Cat, Chesham. Bright amber gold colour, looked good. Quite a distinctive mouthfeel, always feels odd how earthy it is given the honey presence. Quite middle of the road.

Cask at the Castle, Bedford. Very light gold with a smattering of white head. Smells of honey, metal, PVC. Tastes somewhat sweet and very uninteresting. Weak palette. You know what? I donít need this shit. Mediocre fucking beer. Iím going through some serious shit in my life, an awful breakup, Iím depressed as a fuck lacquered in fuck sauce, all I need is a half-decent beer. And Iím drinking mediocre beer. Thatís a big fuck you from the brewer to me. Charles Wells or Wells and Youngís or whatever the fuck, sort your shit out.†

Slightly fruity aroma but not necessarily honey as I would expect. Quite bitter tasting. Slightly fizzy. Honey amber colour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KyotoLefty (6498) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2014
Cask at the Kingís Arms in Oxford. From old notes. A well-rated beer in a very famous pub, but it was quite horrible. Light brown, very bland. Not much in the way or either malt or hops, but a bit of honey. Extremely uninteresting. Probably in poor condition.

Honey colour with a decent foamy white head. Aroma of hops, orange and sweet honey malt. Nice balanced flavour. Medium bodied, slick texture.

Cask. Palw yellow beer. Honey aroma and flavour with some hoppy notes. Thin almost only honey notes.

Shadowstalke (2) - Dursley, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012 does not count
Great looking pint, clear, deep golden orange with a small light frothy head. Disappoints in aroma and flavour given the talking up of the honey content. A little bland in the initial flavour, a mere hint of honey in the aftertaste. An enjoyable beer, but nothing to write home about.

JamesBirch (25) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Cask - The Goat (St. Albans)- disappointing beer given the emphasis on honey. Great orange colour, small traditional ale head - disappears rather quickly - almost total lack of anything from a smell perspective. Recommendation - add more honey, ferment another week - and serve a bit colder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Cask. Amber/golden body with a small white head. The nose is faint cereal and some strawberry. The taste is yeasty lemon and honey, some grains and fruits. Too yeasty with a bizzare tang. The bodyís medium, the carbonation soft. Overall, not a good beer.
