COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle&Cans: 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.

Bottled. Hmmm, has a bit of that Badger sharp floweriness about it but seemed to pull its punches. Cracking looker, though - shimmering copper. WOuld like to try on cask to see if the flavour opens out some more.

KnutAlbert (6298) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle. Light borwn, fruity, easy-drinking ale. Rather malty, the label says hoppy, too, but I cannot agree.

Bottle. Pale amber with next to no head. Aroma of caramel and a touch of grassy hops. Sweet flavour with some marmalade and an abrupt finish. Forgettable.
