Ginger Tom (Robinson's)

Ginger Tom (Robinson's)
Name: Ginger Tom
Label: "A blend of Old Tom and Fentiman's famous Ginger Beer"
Brewery: Robinson's
ABV: 6.0%

Rating: "Old Tom with Ginger, is a mouth watering combination of Robinson's award winning Old Tom Ale and the famously authentic Fentiman's Ginger Beer, which uses a traditional recipe dating back to 1900. It is a superior strong ale with a peppery blast of fresh ginger and spiced herbs."  Happy New drinking Year!

Game: Not had any new beers for a while so there's a lot to catch up on. What recently springs to mind is Space Marines: Warhammer 40000. Quite a competent over-the-shoulder Gears of War clone but without the cover mechanic and some interesting differences (jetpacks!). Overall verdict though is slight disappointment. Oh cool, do I get to drive the massive Titan robot and shoot stuff? No. Do I get to pilot the ship around the planet and shoot stuff? No. Do I get to mash two buttons through another 500 Orks? Yes!  6.5 / 10.
