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.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - JUL 11, 2009
(bottle) Clear, copper colour with a medium sized off-white foamy head. Slightly sweet and sourish (cara-)malty, almost a bit ascorbic nose with slightly gassy, skunky notes and spicy hops. Light-bitter flavour, light bodied, crispy mf. Soft malty taste with subtle citrus-fruity notes and a mild hoppy blend, leading into a dry and moderately bitter finish. Not particularly exciting (11.VII.09).

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2009
Biggish offwhite shiny head. Coppery body with light carbonation. Caramelly vanilla aroma with wooden resiny notes. Dryish vanilla and caramel taste with metallic watery wooden notes. Thinnish body. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Dry vanilla and roasty wood aftertaste, sort of salty. Quite nice, but not very exciting. (0.5l bottle, Tesco, London.)

50cl bottle. Pours clear copper with a white head. Nose is grainy, metallic and vaguely hoppy. Watery mouthfeel and taste. Pretty weak taste overall. Some caramel and bread and very thin and flat. Not impressed.

Will never understand why they poor beer in clear glass bottles, oh well. Amber look with a smal fast disappearing white head. Aroma is like an intense pale lager, meaning lots of grain and grass. Light body with a flavor mainly bitter and grainy with a sleightly sour touch (not good) Overall i didnt like it too much.

(Bottled) Dark golden or light copper in colour. Poured very nicely with a decent sized creamy head. Good aroma, hoppy with some barley and good mouthfeel with a slightly creamy, oily finish. Unfortunately it is disappointing after such a great start. Rather lacking in taste in the mouth and slightly on the sweet side. Still, I imagine this would go down very well on a warm summer’s day (but not so well on a cold January night).
