Named in honour of the inquisitive and extremely “fursty” ferrets of the Gribble Inn, a celebrated golden brown ale, full of character.
At the heart of many a countryside village can be found an inn. A place where locals go to relax after a long day. At one such inn, rumour has it that inquisitive ferrets would sneak to the back door to cheekily sample the local brew. A sweet nutty palate, hoppy aroma and a hint of Seville oranges, give this tawny amber ale its distinctive personality. Recommended with smooth and creamy West Country Cheddar or indulgent pork pies and mustard.

Very light in bittery bitter some notes of caramel and vegal unsure as to what short sharp aftertaste won’t be going out of way to drink another.

uckelman (361) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Pours clear, amber. White head with small bubbles. Aroma is musty hay. Slightly sweet on the front, then a wave of something chemical and offputting, reminiscent of drinking from a pool. (Yes, this was a clean glass.) I think what I’m getting as chemical ick is the "Seville oranges" in the description. Medium body. Not a fan.

sarauckelman (245) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Amber with small cream head with varied sized bubbles. Not much aroma, a bit of hops, a hint of orange. Hoppy without being too bitter, nice grainy taste. I can see why they recommend it with cheddar. Thin mouthfeel. Nothing fancy, but solid.
