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.

victorsampson96 (169) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
(500 ml bottle) Pours a clear, light amber beer, with vigorous medium carbonation, and a frothy white head. Malty aroma of cereal and maize, with skunky cabbage, caramel, iron, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, a bit earthy, but also thin, fizzy, and watery. Not a great beer - a bit of a dud. The clear glass bottle certainly hasn’t helped the beer stay fresh.

Stew41 (2118) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUL 16, 2017
A very mild & modest golden ale. Really only about texture (dry, faint minerals) rather than any obvious flavour. Only for the ticks......

zacgillbanks (5651) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Bottle from Aldi, Washington. Bright golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet toffee and honey flavour with a slight earthy and fruity finish. Not bad.

Lclarkson (3) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017 does not count
Subtle yet sweet to taste its a fine beer for nice salads / fish. A more preferred beer to drink.

Skeeza (1) - Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
Has to be the best tasting ale out of a 500ml bottle that ive tasted... need to find this in cask somewhere to get the real taste
