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.

Drank this loads when the only open shop with beer is bargain booze. Aroma of toffee, slight caramel, creamy, werthers originals? No hop flavour to speak off. Taste follows nose. Slightly metallic. Caramel finish.

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.

Aivan uppo-outo kokemus. ihme haju, mutta maku mukavasti Omarin suuntaan. Kiva ja loiva laakea elämys.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2014
Clear glass bottle, 500 ml, at home. Into a big Guinness glass, ABV 4.4% A very dark orange coloured beer, with a alsmost two full fi gers of mostly white head on top. Good retention, medium lacing on the glass. Clear body with no activity in it. Aroma of hay, some grass, malts, a bit of caramel, some lemon-like hints in there. Taste is malty, nutty, with hay in it, light caramel and toffee, butter biscuits. Soft bitterness that peaks every now and then. Medium thin body, carbonation on the low side, very dry on the palate. Overall an okay beer, maybe a bit too dry and "dirty", but after a while it kinda grows, it doesn’t become anything special though.

Bottle from citymarket kokboksförfattare, Finlands. Fine, lasting light beige head. Clear amber color. Light roasted malt aroma. Well fermented to give a dry finnish.

Sehr süßes Aroma. Der Geschmack ist fast ausschließlich geprägt durch Diacetyl: extremes Butterpopcorn.

Flaske hos Steven: etter to forskjellige Fullres holder ikke denne helt mål selv om den er grei nok. Litt god og frisk appelsinsyre blandet med noe nøtte- og karamellaktig.
