Formerly Blue Truck, Phillips Pale Ale.
The Blue Buck is a legendary beast known to grant those that see him good fortune and safe travels! A deep amber coloured beer, the Blue Buck has a crisp finish featuring a delicate hop aroma. Certainly seeing the Blue Buck on bottle grants the drinker a great experience! Worth searching for.

Very tasty and easy to drink beer. Had 3 down before I even new it. Slightly sweet but not too noticeable. Just very smooth, pity I can’t get ahold of any in the states. If you have some to trade BM me!

Pretty average for a session. Color is an darker wheaty color. Poured with a slight head which quickly dissipated. Taste is lightly bitter with a hint of sweetness. Palate is slightly more carbonated than average with a lingering finish.

DeanF (1891) - Northwest Territories, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
Shared a pitcher of this in Vancouver last week. Has very little head and a copper body. Okay malts and light hop flavour, medium finish. Rather "meh" but it got the job done in a social setting.

Luvystypotables (1118) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2015
A syrupy malt aroma, pours a clear amber color with a short lasting white well laced head. Tastes of malt and a hint of hazelnut. A watery feel with a metalic finish.

Poured from a bottle. Clear copper color, full off white head. Light syrup malt aroma. Light body with a watered down malt flavor and a uneventful finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2015 473ml can. Pours a fairly large foamy white head and has a golden amber appearance. Lacing is ok. Aromas are somewhat fruity, has lots of grainy and grassy notes. Flavours are mostly malty and grainy. Also a bit of bready hints. Subtle fruit notes. Average carbonation. Good retention. Nothing really stands out with this one. Decent but I?ve enjoyed better from this brewery.

Smells like caramel, sweet. Pours amber with light carbonation. Taste is very malty, bread, sweet, no hops or bitterness. Medium bodied. Not very interesting.

Clear Amber copper colour. aroma is malt heavy some cereal some biscuit with a hint of resin hoppiness. Medium bodied malty flavour sort of fast flavour profile and a hint of bitter finish. Not very remarkable from I brewery I usually enjoy.

Light brown pour small beige head. Light and bready aroma, light cereals, and some subtle UK hops. Lightly pungent, and very soft. Some good aromas abd flavours, but everything seems quite soft. A nice quaff, easily drinkable, low bitterness, with a solid nutty, UK hop finish.
