  • My Rating: D+

Waggle Dance – Wells, 5.0% ABV – 650ml., (Bedford, UK)

  • Style: (honey) Flavoured Ale
  • Taste: Crisp barley honey malt dry finish
  • Where I got it : Brewery Creek
  • How much: $4 (after 10% off) – 650ml., September 2013
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no

Visual: Pours cloudy marmalade orange with a small creamy dissipating head, thin ringed retention, some sticky lacing, not much activity other than few bubbles surfacing.

Nose: honey and a bit of malts, but otherwise muted (lvl-2)-pungency

Attack: crisp sweet

Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) barley malt, mild caramel

Finish: hoppy dry-rough, honey aftertaste, burpy.

Summary: Surprisingly, this one is quite bland, almost a meal beer (as in not much flavour, just something crisp to clean the palate). Quite disappointing.
