Robinsons Ginger Old Tom

This 6.0% ABV ale is from Robinsons Brewery in Stockport, Cheshire, United Kingdom. They have been brewing since 1899 and this is their flagship ale blended with Fentiman's Ginger Ale and pear juice.

The beer pours deep brown, mahogany, tints of ruby. There is a short head of somewhat creamy off-white foam. The aroma is ginger, ginger and ginger, like the ginger slices you would find in a sushi restaurant. The taste is ginger, spicy ginger, and in the background a dark roasted and caramel malt ale. It has a tingly carbonation that complements the gentle sting of the ginger. If you like ginger, you have found your beer.
