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.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 I should warn that I have a bias in my beer reviews, in that I have a taste for malty beers. This is one of them, and I really like it. For my money, it is a terrific English-style bitter, with unusual umami side tastes to it, as in chicken gravy or salty beef crisps. Which sounds gross, except when you balance that with a touch of hops bitterness, you get a quirky, well-behaved beer that is just right. The colour is a blood-orange brown, dotted with lively carbonation that produces a lasting, thin white head and tiers of lacing. The carbonation gives a slight bite at the beginning that mellows to a smooth mouthfeel.

Fruity golden ale. Malty with hint of mango in smell and taste. Decent enough

Grumbo (4264) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle. Poured dark gold with an average sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, hop and citrus. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Towards medium body, slight oily texture, soft carbonation.

Een Ale die een lichte herfstkleur heeft, helaas ook het aroma van verrot blad in een storm, smaak is licht zoet, met een niet al te fijne nasmaak, of er een laagje diesel blijft hangen. Wordt niet erger tijdens drinken, plus 1.

kapusil (1563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 12, 2017
0.5l bottle. Clear orange body with a thin white head. Very bland beer. Faint sour grainy and bready character with some weak grassy hops. Not good at all.

zacgillbanks (5661) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle from ASDA, Washington. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a floral friuty, peach and earthy flavour with subtle malt and warmth on the finish. Not bad.

Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2017
A decent Ale, focused on rather sweet, caramel flavors, but accompanied with a welcome tender hoppy bitterness.
