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.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2003
Think this is the same beer. Had in a bottle (Badger, but mentions the Gribble Inn). Clean fresh crisp hop and honey nose. Golden colour with white foamy head. Malty barley taste. Very refreshing but nothing special.

Appearance: copper amber color. Little to medium head with ivory color, some rocky and lasting. Aroma: mainly malty, with some fruity smells similar to peaches and nuts. Light floral hops aromas. Flavor: malty and slightly sweet start, both lasting. Fruitiness similar to peaches and nuts. Light citric progress, maybe from hops, with reminiscences of oranges. Little but persistent dryness. Palate: light body with medium carbonation. Low character, mediocre beer.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2008
Bottle (500ml).Poured amber brown with a small, frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was sweet with toffee, biscuity malts, strong earthy/oak notes, hazel nuts, cereal and a subtle fruitiness. Flavor was of sweet/dry biscuity malts with strong earthy/wood notes, hazel nuts, chewy caramel, a subtle fruitiness (oranges, blackberries) and light notes of dirt in the finish. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation a dry/sweet mouthfeel and a good finish.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2004
Typical bitter, easy to drink, not a lot of flavour, some caramel and slight citrus. Thin but drinkable!

2.8
JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2004
Bottle. Copper coloured, mid sized head. Vague hoppy and malty aroma. Taste is light hops and malts, caramel with a bitter/sweet finish. Did not improve on warming (had it cold from the fridge), yeasty and metallic flavours coming into play.

2.8
JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2005
Appearance is a mixture of brown and amber. Nice, forward hop/skunk aroma dominates the nose, but unfortunately does not carry through in the flavour. Instead, Fursty Ferret is surprisingly malty with a hint of fruitiness. Not much of a finisher. A regular, everyday, drinkin’ beer.

2.8
TimE (6067) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 21, 2005
Copper color, malty nose with a faint hint of wood and apples. Malty mouth that is very woody and a malty finish, but really boring. One of the maltist English beers I have ever had.
