COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle&Cans: 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.

Clear bottle. Acetaldehyd(green aplles) and maize dominate the aroma. Lively mouthfeel with loads of oxidation here and green apples. Slightest of hops are noticed.

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 18, 2008
Pours a light copper with a fluffy white head. Aroma features an estery blend of apples and pears with a hint of caramel malt. On the palate the fruit salad effect continues cushioned by a rich sweet crystal malt base which leads to a solid bitter finish

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 8, 2008
Appearance: copper amber color. Little to medium head with ivory color, some rocky and lasting. Aroma: mainly malty, with some fruity smells similar to peaches and nuts. Light floral hops aromas. Flavor: malty and slightly sweet start, both lasting. Fruitiness similar to peaches and nuts. Light citric progress, maybe from hops, with reminiscences of oranges. Little but persistent dryness. Palate: light body with medium carbonation. Low character, mediocre beer.
