COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
Production moved from Youngs to Wells & Youngs in 2007.
Unusual name, unusual beer. 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. This is balanced by a healthy does of hops to provide the bitterness that gives a wonderfully delictae flavour. The overall result is beautifully balanced and sneakily seductive.
Pale ale and crystal malt, Fuggle and Golding hops together with South American honey create this delicious golden ale with a superb honey aroma.

this is, hands down, my favorite beer in all respects. lovely orange color, thick lacing on the glass, mellow hops with little bite (maybe a little too unaggressive), mildly sweet without being cloying, excellent nose and aftertaste of honey. available (intermittently) only in bottles in the area, which is no detriment... even the graphics are first rate.

Bottled. Amber-Orange colour, small head, light-sweet aroma, almost no honey flavor hints of malt and hops. mouthfeel is quite sweet. nothing special.

Bottle- very big honey aromas and flavour characters. A delicious dessert beer.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
From December 2006 (BA): This 500ml clear bottle with the funky new label design will be one of the last reviews of this beer from its traditional home in London. I know this is from the original brewery because the label says so and the best by date is 14 June 2007. Brewing stopped a short time ago and moved to Bedford. This Waggle Dance was consummed on Saturday 16th Dec 2006. Clear, bright and light copper in colour, with a good white foam head, which stayed the duration of the pint. The aroma was of coffee and toffee, no honey stuck to my nose. Funny taste, not unpleasant, but strange, sweetish, but with a hoppy bitterness that leaves a dry taste in your mouth. I have had it in cask before and enjoyed it more, my wife drinks it on draught, she tried this bottle and prefers the draught version.

Metalchopz (2208) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
Originally rated September 2004. This ale poured a golden-amber colour with a good head, and some lacing. The nose was weak with confusing aromas. Could mostly smell the alcohol. Tasted fruity, but not much on the honey side. Smooth mouthfeel. Good, but deceiving for a brew from Young’s Brewery.

Warning! Early amateur rating! I don’t know about a honey beer - this tastes a lot more like a flat and uninteresting lager.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
From old notes. Bottle from Sainsburys. Gold with a white head. Not as much Honey in it as when Vaux used to brew it but that’s not a bad thing. Reasonable hop bitterness to balance but still a silly beer.
