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.

A solid and respectable ale notwithstanding the dumbed down marketing. Pours a copperish colour with big bubbles. Opened up as it warmed. Nice malts.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a caramel colored beer witha huge quickly dissipating head. Malt hops and sugar in the nose.Light body, some carbonation, very malty with hops but not that best tasting sort. Finish is astringent. Reasonable beer for a session.

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 30, 2010
0,5 l bottle as a gift.
Coppery/amber/reddish color with a small lacing off white head. Toasted caramel, nuts, yeast and some hop in the moderated aroma. Bready malt base with some toasted caramel, the nutty character again and a bitter grassy hop in the finish with notes of yeasts. Not a big deal.

futre7 (198) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 29, 2011
Pours orange with a thin head. Quite a bit of carbonation. Nose is orange and caramel. Taste is slightly bitter hops. Mild citrus and orange and a hint of caramel. Not bad though.

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 24, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2012 Re-rate 7/25/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear copper. Smells and taste like old popcorn with a horrible aftertaste. Disgusting. Something’s really wrong with this one, score is not calculated. 2/3/1/2/2=1

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Oren. Clear copper color. Aroma of fruits, flowers and spicy notes. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues to a bitter finish with somewhat earthy and spicy hops. Medium-bodied. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8
