COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pub Brew. Happy Jack is a medium bodied, malty Scottish ale with a touch of ginger and smoked malt. Sweet aromas of caramel and toffee serve as the perfect precursor to the similar malt flavors within. Accents of floral ginger and smoked malt impact the palate, and linger slightly in the finish.

Draft sample. Poured clear dark brown color with medium frothy off-white head that mostil lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy aroma of toasted malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium toasted sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Draft sample at brewery-Pours a light brown with no head and an aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and a touch of ginger. Taste of malt, ginger ,caramel, toffee, and a bit of smoke. This medium to full bodied brew is very well balanced and brings out a bunch of tastes. Not a fan of this style but this one rocks.
