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.

Appearance- Very deep amber colour with medium cream foam.

Aromas- Sweet with notes of ginger, caramel, roasted malts and fruits with touch of cinnamon and spice.

Palate- Medium to full body with smooth texture leaving lightly spicy ginger finish.

Taste- Sweet and spicy of ginger, cinnamon, big red chewing gum, anise and different herbs and spices.

Overall- Wow, did not expect that, nice solid brew with complex and rich spice and heb mix with decent texture and aromas. Nice!

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2018 Color marrón condestellos rojo rubí al trazluz, saca una crema blanco marfil de 3 dedos con retención muy buena. Aroma a caramelo y jengibre. Gusto muy dulce, demasiado, malta caramelo, caña de azucar, pasas, un punto tostada, muy espciada, diría que pimienta rosa y sobre todo jengibre, parece un postre de navidad. Muy buen cuerpo. De tan dulce que es por momentos parece Coca-Cola y si le añades el frescor que te deja el jengibre, te quedas un poco fuera de juego. Una birra diferente.

I love ginger and spiced ginger in drinks will always be a favourite so I liked this. Aromas of sweet ginger and roasted malts stick out, and the ginger flavour doesn't simply mask the others with roasted malts and caramel giving it a richer blended taste that was very satisfying.

27-03-18 // shared with the local crew, thanks! Murky brown. Strong ginger sweet nose. Heavy sweet malty. Ginger and lemon. Weird.

6% alk. Zanimljiva piva, ima dosta jako izraženu aromu gingera, iliti đumbira. Okusom ipak nema toliko te karakteristične gorčine jer je zamaskirano slatkoćom pive.

Trolleo (3716) - Manchester / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 27, 2018
Caramel, toffee and ginger aroma, slightly herbal with noticeable alcohol. Clear deep ruby to brown color with small creamy off-white head. Sweet, ginger, some tobacco, caramel, herbal aftertaste. Slightly artificial sweet root beer effect. Medium body, soft carbonation, bit oily. //bottle

Bottle, 330 ml, courtesy of and shared with Max. Pours brown with medium yellowish head. Malty, spicy, ginger, caramel, sweet. Medium bodied. I'm not a big fan of ginger, but this is decent.

miggle (471) - Fürth, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2018
Very black and basically no head. Actually it looks like Cola. Strong ginger aroma. Taste is very sweet. It’s more like lemonade that beer, but interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Teran (402) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 21, 2017
Cola brown colour, beige top medium sized. Medicinal, deeply herbal, smooth and oily. Spicy and nice for winter time. Very English!
