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.

pours light amber with white head. aroma is caramel, hops spice, and orange. taste is sweet with some hoppy character, not very complex, but ok. lots of carbonation and a thin profile really let this down. pretty boring.

Bottled. Clear copper colour with a small off-white head. A balance of grain/malt and english hops on the nose. Malty flavours with good body and a balance of sweetness with a bitter finish. A slightly biscuity, lager-like flavour.

the aroma is smooth, malty with hints of hop and citrus... the taste is malty, rather mild, with notes of dry fruits and some spices... light hopping... dry, sweet and bitter aftertaste...

Bottle from the Coop. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - butterscotch, or maybe I’m being unfair- perhaps shortbread and caramel so millionaire shortbread. Taste -caramel, actually syrup. Verging on honeycomb. Palate - medium bodied with a sweet tangy texture and a finish that isn’t as bad as you think it’s going to be. Overall - it’s a bit sweet but not I bad.
