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.

Brun med cremefarvet skum. Duften er fyldig og krydret med tydelig prćg af ingefćr. Smagen er sřd og domineret af ingefćr og peber med en varmende, brćndende fornemmelse ŕ la chili. Eftersmagen er let syrlig men sřd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark amber/brown colour, stable head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, lemon, ginger is not very forward. Taste is more of ginger, caramel, lemon, sweet and bitter. A bit too sweet for me. Overall not bad.

Ruprecht_007 (808) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 13, 2016
Barva tmavá, vůně příjemná sladká zázvorová a chlebová. Chuť: sladký karamelový nástup, který přechází v zázvorovou ostrost. Dlouhý sladký bylinkový dozvuk.

MarkoNm (2381) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 24, 2016
Pours a hazy dark brown color, topped with a big and medium lasting tan head. Mild malty aroma with little roastiness. Moderate herbal ginger aroma. Mildly sweet start, heavy on the herbal ginger, bittery with a spicy finish. Nope, not my type.

Gekauft als 0,33 Flasche beim Kraftpaule in Stuttgart. Sehr leckeres Bier für den Sommer, aber mit 6,0 Prozent muss man aufpassen nicht zu viel zu trinken. Sehr würzig und aromatisch im Abgang.

nephirem (270) - CROATIA - JUN 1, 2016
Pours clear deep amber color with medium, slightly off-white head. Very refreshing smell of ginger and caramel. Medium body with oily texture and very subtle carbonation. Taste is balanced between sweet and bitter with added spiciness. Lovely aroma, ginger, malts, caramel, nuts, berries... Beautifully balanced and very, very tasty. Spicy finish. Overall, excellent brew. Very underrated.

hauxe (441) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 23, 2016
Pours dark brown from the bottle with a thin foamy head. Aroma is a provocative mixture of ginger and roasted caramel malt. Quite appealing. Taste is very sweet, with a warm ginger bite that lingers in the lips. Finish is long, sweet and warming. I like ginger and have enjoyed other Old Tom brews and expected to be a fan of this one. However the ginger is a touch too strong and leaves little room for the malts and hops. Good for drinking when you have a cold.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2016
Nagy, nagyon tartós bézs hab, sötétbarna szín. Illata intenzív, a gyömbér szinte mindent elnyom. Íze markánsan és csípősen gyömbéres, némi karamellel, komoly szénsavval, a háttérben felsejlő malátával, alig érezhető komlós kesernyével. Utóíze karamellmalátás és persze csípős gyömbéres. Nem rossz, de egy kicsit túltolták a fűszerezést.
