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.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle. Cap shows signs of leakage. Honey coloured with a dense white head. Aroma is slight cardboard, dusty hops, a bit sour. Flavour is sweet with a sour finish. Tastes flat and old, a vile beer of decay.

One of the more interesting efforts from the Hall and Woodhouse brewery. I once described this beer as very ’meaty’ to one of my friends. Tastes malty and biscuity. Little or no head. Amber color. Average beer, but better than most!

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 [653-20070922] 500mL. Smells like wet ferret (i.e. mildly skunky) and light spruce resin. Clear, golden amber body with a small quick foamy off-white head. More resin and sticky sap in the flavour and fursty wet ferret. Medium body. Unfortunately bottled in a clear vessels, but somehow still strangely lives up to it’s name... (4/2/4/3/9) 2.2

[2584B-20091113] 500mL clear bottle. Floral toffee aroma has some weird wet dog hops. Clear, amber orange body with a quick foamy white head. English wet dog hops flavour. Medium body is bitter. Not my favourite hops but a fair brew. (5/3/5/3/11) 2.7

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a caramel colored beer witha huge quickly dissipating head. Malt hops and sugar in the nose.Light body, some carbonation, very malty with hops but not that best tasting sort. Finish is astringent. Reasonable beer for a session.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Light brown, frothy head. Strong mashy aroma, quite pleasant. Very tasty - nice and malty, tangy orange, and some pepperiness on the tongue too. Malty, peppery, and hoppy finish.

madquacker (1030) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2007
A solid and respectable ale notwithstanding the dumbed down marketing. Pours a copperish colour with big bubbles. Opened up as it warmed. Nice malts.

Fukito (733) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle, september 07. Ovwerwhelming light struck aroma with slight grassy notes and skunk. Clear, light, orange golden color with swift carbonatation and a bubbly, medium white head. Flavor is very light, some slight caramel notes and a citric, acid hop touch at the end. Slightly oxidized. Mouthfeel is light to medium, watery, some dryness at the end. A dull, empty, light strucked golden ale. Refreshinh though.
