COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Malty, hoppy, drimkable. More than normal levels of carbonation. Drank straight from the bottle

On tap. Sweet base malt aroma with some oxidation cardboard. Almost clear copper under a lasting, lacy white sheet. Sweet malt flavour quickly yields to bitterness and faint US hops. Unpleasant cardboard and ethanol. Medium light body, medium carbonation, lingering tangy bitter finish.

Light amber colour with a white head. Hoppy taste with a taste similar to biscuits and aroma too match. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the beer I use to coax Coors Light drinkers into giving craft beers a go. Its mild colour, mild aroma, and mild hoppiness place it squarely in the middle of the road for more adventurous tasters.

Bottle, medium amber with a thin off white head. A highly sessionable beer with maltiness and a slightly caramel, soapy hoppy finish.

Citrus on the nose and tongue. Light amber in the glass . Hint of sweetness with slight bitter finish. Nice balance. Good sipper.

exeter (242) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Tastes of grapefruit hops, biscuit and caramel. A little bitterness at the end. It’s a nice light beer with good balance. Nothing off putting.

Light amber pour with a thin white head. Mildly bittersweet. That’s really about it.

Bottle. Solid session ale. Solid malt character. Brown sugar sweetness. Worth a shot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
