COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: 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.

mine poured golden with a decent frothy head which stayed a while, taste is a fine malty hoppy citrus mix, leading to a quite dry semi-bitter finish

boto (1844) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 14, 2014
500ml bottle: This one pours a clear, light amber color. There was almost no head on it and minimal lacing. the nose is OK. Malts, orange and spices. It has an interesting taste. Malts are well balanced with the hops, and just somewhat bitter. A slight orange flavor with some faint spices. Not bad.

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 (2189) - 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.
