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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Amber colour, medium head. Aroma is malty, sweet and skunky. Fruity and yeasty with good dose of hops. A typical Badger taste.
