Originally labelled as Ginger Tom. Label was changed to read Old Tom With Ginger circa 2011.
Ginger Tom is a lively breed indeed, a subtle snap of ginger creates lovely purring warmth for those cold winter nights, or a refreshing summer beverage when served over ice.
Specially brewed using an infusion of Chinese bruised ginger root and botanical extracts, this warming speciality ale has a pronounced ginger and spiced herb palate complemented by a sweet roasted malt dryness and wonderful ginger after burn.
Ginger Tom is a richly flavoured dark oak coloured ale with distinctive aromas of peppery spice and sweet ginger.

Strong aroma of ginger as name implies. Hint of citrus and herbs in taste. Dark brown color, no head. Medium sweetness, I would have preferred less sweet. Medium body, flat, abrupt finish. Overall nice ginger taste, a bit more spicy and longer after taste would be even better.

From 0,33l bottle, BBD: NOV15, Pours clear dark red to brown liquid, Aroma: malty, caramel, toasty, ginger, sugar/ syrup, Taste: medium to heavy sweet, light to medium bitter, light to medium sour, spicy ginger dominating, backed by malty, caramel and toasty notes, sweet sugary/ syrupy - cola taste - reminds me cola lollipop - not the thing I would appreciate in the beer. But overall drinkable.

As Marks & Spencer Ginger Ale. Clear amber orange beer, medium white head. Nose is spicy ginger, some malts and caramel, toasty notes. Flavor is pretty gingery and malty, with an almost peppery-gingery finish. Some sweetness and caramel in the mix. Drinkable.

Kauge (657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from SuperAlko in Tallinn (€ 2.45). BB Jun 2015. Pours a clear chestnutty colour. Head light beige. Quite big. Retaining. Lacing. On the nose it’s ginger lemonade and sugar. Taste is… sweet, bitter and spicy… wouldn’t say it’s balanced. Where the ginger retreats, then it’s caramel dominating. There’s quite a lot of ginger spiciness in the finish after a large gulp. Body medium, carbonation soft, palate creamy smooth. Overall a caramelly sweet ale spiced with ginger. Not offending, not bad, but not exactly good either.

AshtonMcCobb (3747) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - deep amber to brown with an orange chink. Nose - light creamy toffee, hint of ginger. Taste - more toffee, hobnobs and ginger increases at the back of the palate. Ginger biscuits. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly decent finish, if a bit too gingery. Overall - decent and the ginger is not too intrusive.

nihtila (1600) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2015 15.7.2014. Dark brown with white head. Ginger can be smelled from distance. Smells like coca cola with ginger. Also some herbs. Taste is quite sweet with malts, vanilla and ginger. Slight ginger afterburn along with sweetness at finish. More than beer it tastes liie ginger cola.
