COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised;
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.

Oelbas (274) - - MAR 3, 2014
Brun med cremefarvet skum. Duften er fyldig og krydret med tydelig præg af ingefær. Smagen er sød og domineret af ingefær og peber med en varmende, brændende fornemmelse à la chili. Eftersmagen er let syrlig men sød. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelbraune Farbe mit einem Kupfer Einstich, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist von Ingwer dominiert, mit einer minimalen oxidierten Karamellnote. Der Geschmack ist süßlich mit Ingwer und Karamell und mit Ingwer-Schärfe im Nachgeschmack.

klukas (370) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JUN 5, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into some shaker glass. Appearance: Dark ruby/brown colour, with floating bits and medium creamy head. Aroma: Ginger, malt, hint of caramel and hops... Palate: Light watery body; gentle carbonation. Taste: Sweet, ginger and some other spices, citrus-like and pepper bitter and hot aftertaste. Overall impression: Interesting, might be enjoyable; I’m not into ginger but this is good enough. Reminds of peppery radler.

Alebarasi (179) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - APR 24, 2017
Dark brown/deep ruby color with large, beige foamy head. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger, hops, malts, toffee, spices. Taste is very gingery and moderately sweet, with accompanied aromas of dark fruits, dark bread, yeast, syrup, soda pear and some vanilla, licorice and alcohol. Unique and enjoyable.
