COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

A deep golden colour with a nice white top. Taste of malt and hops, with fruits and a little bit of earthy bitterness to counter it being too sweet. Really enjoyed this one!

Bitter is and of it’s own style, it’s not a hoppy beer, and I think I came to associate one with the other. Back to the bitter though. This pours well, looks great. Has the unmistakable English bitter aroma, and the bitterness is of the style, which lacks real body and depth. As a cold drink though this is pleasant enough with a nice amount of sweetness, not sure I could carry a session on it though.

mine poured golden with a decent frothy head which stayed a while, taste is a fine malty hoppy citrus mix, leading to a quite dry semi-bitter finish

500ml bottle: This one pours a clear, light amber color. There was almost no head on it and minimal lacing. the nose is OK. Malts, orange and spices. It has an interesting taste. Malts are well balanced with the hops, and just somewhat bitter. A slight orange flavor with some faint spices. Not bad.

Pours copper brown, decent head. Aroma is nutty, chocolates, hazelnuts. Taste is very similar, to the smells. I actually enjoyed this. Recommended with smooth West Country cheddar or pork pies and mustard. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yllättävä maku haistelun jälkeen. Tasaisen tylppä maku. Lievä kitalaki tuntuma. Mielenkiintoinen olut vaihteluksi.
