Breakfast Beer Tasting: Red Panther

Panther have only been brewing since 2010 and explain their raison d'être thus:"Inhabitants of the small Norfolk town of Reepham claim to have seen a large panther-like cat prowling and secretly stalking the countryside. This hand-crafted ale is dedicated to this beautiful animal.”

The basics: This is a bottle-conditioned, 500ml, 4.1% ale. It poured tawny with reasonable carbonation and an off-white head. Aroma was fruit and biscuit malt.

Taste: Quite smooth on the palate. There’s some biscuit malt and a hint of toffee before the tart fruit and good old English hop bitterness kicks in.

Finish: Initially fruity, but becoming quite dry.

Conclusion: Well balanced mix of fruit and hops. A good solid, English Bitter. One for your cousin.
