COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Sold in cans in some territories.
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.

Ousen (32) - , DENMARK - FEB 12, 2011
50 cl can. Nice golden color with a pleasant aroma. Taste is malty, with a metallic flavour and an unbalanced hop bitterness. Would perhaps work as a session beer, but nothing more.

This is by no means a bad beer - the worst you could say about it is that it suffers from blandness. Pours a clear amber with a thin head. Hops on the nose annd sweet malt on the tongue. A smooth easy drinker. A shame that complexity of the beer was sacrificed in the process.

dynamiteninja (1848) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2013 Bottle. Wonderful smell of quality hops and malt, caramel, toffee, Weetabix, fruits and nuts. Medium off-white fluffy head, clear amber-brown body, a little visible carbonation, a tad uninteresting. Bitter, but with a good balance of sweetness. Silky mouthfeel, good carbonation, although a little too aggressive on the mouth, boring and slightly cloying dry finish. Very quaffable. A decent summer thirst-quencher, but a little boring! 6 2 6 2 12 Bottle. Amber body. No head. Fruit, boiled vegetables, burnt toast. Tangy. Dry finish. 5 2 6 2 11
