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.

Drank this loads when the only open shop with beer is bargain booze. Aroma of toffee, slight caramel, creamy, werthers originals? No hop flavour to speak off. Taste follows nose. Slightly metallic. Caramel finish.

500ml Bottle at home, poured into pint glass. Aroma: Caramel, malty Appearance: golden, with minimal head and quite carbonated Taste: honey, malty, quite sweet. Easy to drink. A nice change from the more bitter IPAs Ive had recently. Would buy again.

BrewWhatIWant (168) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
Pours amber with an offwhite head that never goes away and leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is malty. Taste is slightly sour but well balanced. There are notes of very nutty malt, oranges, lightly spicy hops, and some fruity esters. Light bodied and medium carbonation. Its a bit watery but that just makes it easier to drink because it is quite tasty.

A very robust flavour, but can sometimes leave a sharp sugary taste on the tongue immediately after drinking. Otherwise, one of my favourites.

Bottle, 50 cl. Pleasant bitter, malt dominates. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Unfortunately not that complex aroma.

This beer tastes like my cats sleeping bag. When I was in the navy wed drink it out of strawberry flavoured johnnies and we called it whiplash central. If I could go back in time Id ask my dad to pull out. Only once have I ever felt joy, and thats when my neighbours cat choked to death on a hot wheels car

Cigar on the nose, one head lemon. Crisp clean palate, this is not my style of beer, but for what it is, it's not bad.
