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.

Massive sweetness on the initial aroma thankfully moderates a bit after a while, but it still remains a pretty sweet beer. Malt, honey, grass, bread, caramel, hay and orange at the finish, light bitterness, bit of spice and a hint of lemon. Not my style, but I thought this wasn’t too bad.

LazyPyro (222) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with a nice big frothy white head, quite long lasting, some lacing. Aroma is malty with a slight sweetness to it, but also a subtle hint of roast malt. Flavour is mostly malts and some citrus hops and a little sweetness. A nice beer but nothing really stands out as special.

Bottle. Amber colour, nice thick head, decent lacing. Malty, a bit of toffee - but generally feels a bit empty. Light bitterness. Medium body. Not bad, but not interesting as well.

This ale has limited foam, an aroma of nuts and hops and a little citrus. The taste is rich and has a partial caramel note with sweet touches of fruit or perhaps honey. Hop bitterness is quickly on the field and is typically British. That is a somewhat flat / lazy ale with a pronounced hop bitterness.
