This one takes it’s name from the Hen Harrier which is locally known as the Sky Dancer because of it’s elaborate flying displays, I can just imagine being sat outside a pub near the Bowland Forest, drinking a pint of this and watching the birds fly.
My first impressions of this beer were that it was a lot lighter than the Headless Peg and not quite as full of flavour or as tasty, however it was still a pretty fine beer.
It was light and summery, with a little bit of peach and a hint of grapefruit, it would almost compare it to the Badger range of beers that have a similar peachy flavour.
Sky dancer was a little bit fizzier and didn’t have as much body as the Headless Peg. It also had a lovely bitter aftertaste that slowly melted away leaving you wanting more.
Out of the two Bowland Beers I have had, this was Emily’s favourite she thought it was very tasty and just about right for her, not too bitter, not too sweet or flowery, so i guess that means i won’t be seeing any of the remaining bottles.
If you see this beer in the shop or are lucky enough to be close to the brewery i would definitely give it a try as it would make a cracking party or session beer.
