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.

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.

djoeye (896) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
Aroma; caramel malts, grass, hops, apple hints. Slightly dark amber body, clear, one finger off white head with some apricot cream tones in it, knitted small curtains of lacings inside the mug. Taste; caramel malts, hops, walnut, raisin, grains, butterscotch. Normal to palate. Normal bodied. Finish is modest bitter, some malts and hops. Overall it felt as a bitter with some sweet czech svetly elements. That’s not bad! 0,5L clear bottle 4.4% b@supermarket in Finland, tasted@home Norway.

elbernays (310) - IRELAND - MAR 15, 2014
Pours clear amber with white creamy head. Straw, bread, toast aroma, some nuts and honey. Flavour is watery, sugary malts. Slight bitterness in way out. There is a lift of honey nuttiness on finish. Not much going for this.

Weefannybaws (83) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Metallic, fizzy, malty liquid. Some may call it beer. Quenches thirst, but not one I’d want again. May go well with crisps or nuts.

martjoobolut (356) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 11, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 09.2014. Pours pale amber with white head. The head stays. Aroma is metallic, sweet, caramel, and fresh fruits. Taste is sweet, fruits, caramel, yeast, and some bitterness. Overall: light, but drinkable.

edsspoon (137) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Pours pale amber with a thick white head. Aroma of grassy hops, cereal malt and some spice/pepper - not particularly pleasant. Taste of grassy and English hops, bit of skunkiness, malt, medium bitterness and a bit too sweet. A bit watery. Its a pretty average bitter, but leaves a lot to be desired.

RyanE (118) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
Light amber, watery pour. Head disappears quite quickly. Whiff of skunk. Can’t get past it. Thin and not very well balanced. Even though this may have been a faulty bottle, it is still not to my liking.
