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.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 No real aroma to speak of. Golden brown colour was not particularly appealing. Nice sweet taste but too dry. Would probably go well as a shandy.

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, 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 (6765) - 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.)
