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.

Bottle. Amber pour, white head. Citrus and caramel aroma. Fruity- spicy flavours, has a strange sweet aftertaste which I’ve found with a few other Badger beers. Light, dry bitter finish.

500 ml bottle. Ilford, England.
Clear deep golden colour with tiny white head. Floral English bitter hoppy aroma. Mild sweet floral bitter flavour with some caramel sweetness added.

Botte from Tesco. Nutty and creamy ale, transfers to the bottle well. One of my favourite lighter ales.

Martin243 (1214) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
500ml bottle, served cold. Honey coloured with a white head.Nutty flavour, pleasantly refreshing. Woody finish. I wouldn’t go overboard, but an O.K. beer

bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours bright amber with a slight creamy white head. Mild caramel aroma with floral and mild wood notes. Med body. Flavor is bitter, followed by a quick hit of diacetyl. Mildly malty, Somewhat lightly fruity. It is bitter. Then it’s diacetyl again. But the bitter tends to knock that annoyance away. Shame tho.

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2011
from Amstein - pours a clear amber colour with a chaotic foam left; a moderate aromatic hoppiness with notes of herbs; thin-bodied and with a light tart bitterness, notes of caramel in a gentle herbal and fruity hoppy finish

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2011
Good smelling. Color is golden, and does not impress. First taste has metallic aroma, like can, and it after tasting it starts to appear in smell as well. There are other aromas as well, such as gone off, sour and yeasty. Finish is surprisingly good considering how bad the beer is over all.

crispi (107) - AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2011
0.5l bottle. served cold from fridge. Almost no head at all, and no lace. Clear, with little carbonation. light brown-amber colour. very fruity with some hops. could be a good session beer, but otherwise pretty weak and watery.

77ships (10844) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2011
[email protected] from supermarket: somewhat oil-like texture & flavour, very mild toasted bread malts, some caramel & nut taste, minor bitter aftertaste that is somewhat unwanted, thin to light body, overall middling but certainly not unpleasant beer

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2011
old amateur rating: bottle. very drinkable. Good aroma. Good delicious English woody taste.
