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.

[email protected], Helsinki. Deep golden color, white head. Fairly sweet malty flavor with some nuttiness and boiled vegetables. Meh.

A decent Ale, focused on rather sweet, caramel flavors, but accompanied with a welcome tender hoppy bitterness.

Bottle. Clear golden color. Aroma and taste: clear, light, fruity, citrus, slightly sulphurous, mild hoppy, very drinkable.

fantastic, light and sweet golden ale with a brilliant backstory. for a long while, fursty ferret was my real ale of choice, however i have yet to sample the casked variety. has an incredible biscuit taste that compliments the malt and counteracts the sweetness. brilliant!

Pours deep clear amber with a medium white head. Nice and nutty. Good hoppy bitterness and orange zest aftertaste.

Maits (556) - ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2017
Clear dark golden beer with big white head. Aroma is little hoppy, malts and caramel. Taste nice malty, bready and caramel. Nicely balanced between bitter and sweet. Overall good bitter.

A little too bitter for the lightness of it. Slightly honey and smooth malt, but not a lot of flavour. Sobeys liquor store. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber colour with great white head that leaves lots of lacing behind. Really great tasting ale. Great balance of sweet and bitter. Slight hits of orange and honey. Medium body, and light carbonation that make it easy smooth drinking. Pleasant lasting after taste.

Nøddeagtig smag, og en fin bitterhed i eftersmagen.........................

Liquid color is golden.very clear liquid,the taste is very bitter. average carbonation. tastes bad if bottle has been in room-tempature you should drink it cold.

AleRider78 (1384) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a fairly large foamy bubbly off-white head and has a clear golden amber appearance. Average carbonation. Lots of sticky dirty lacing. Aromas of barley malts, toasty and hints of caramel. Flavours are mostly malty, lots of bready and caramel malt notes, some nuts and subtle orange notes. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Smooth and slick mouthfeel. Not bad.
