ROBINSON'S OLD TOM WITH GINGER

Robinson's Old Tom With Ginger. Robinson's neck label modestly suggests that this is made from a combinaton of the World's Best Ale and Fentiman's Ginger Beer.

It might have been the world's best ale in 1899, when it was first brewed, but palates are a touch more sophisticated these days. I dunno, I'd like to try it without the flattening, sweetening, cloying effect of the ginger beer.

Who knows? The two things might actually work in glasses on their own. They sure don't work together. 

It's almost undrinkable, delivering flat, barely carbonated liquid that just feels like an adulterated version of something else.

Look at it in the shop. Laugh. Move on to something else.
