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.

From a metal can. Pour a clear golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt and almond. Flavors of malt, bread and corn. Medium carbonation and some sweetness. Strong in corn flavors. Drinkable, but not particularly pleasant. No thanks.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Most enjoyable beer I've ever had. Highly recommend on tap or in a bottle or can. Excellent. I would choose this beer over many things.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of toasty malts and a hint of nuttiness. Taste follows, a little more toward caramel sweetness. Ok enough.

Cleanly made, not much unique about this one. Again, seems to be heavy on the cara malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Resinous hop aroma with some caramel malt too. Amber brown ale with minimal head and clear liquor. On the sweeter side with a bitterness that comes on after the initial sweetness. Medium bodied with a thin texture and abrupt finish. Very dependable and drinkable beer, restrained and tasty.

Found this beer on Vancouver island (where the brewery is) and loved it! Great finish easy drinking beer goes down well any day! The brew tour is worth doing also... lots of good ones ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can and on tap - the canned version is a disappointed - amber-gold , small off white head, aromas of caramel, some earthy hop notes and light sweetness - medium body, smooth, soft mouth feel - flavor is malt forward with caramel malts dominating and a nice but understated earthy-woody tone from the hops - finish is long, wet, clean and verging on sweet. - decent drink but I wouldn’t session the canned version. Amber ales are a catch-all category for brewers to run sweet caramel malts forward but this is toned back enough to make it drinkable - maybe 2 or 3

Consumed while on vacation in Edmonton, Alberta. 12-ounce bottle pours clear gold with a spritz of white head and lacing. Aroma: floral, honey. Flavor: the above, plus caramel; it’s a malt-forward brew with almost no balancing bittering hops. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied; lingering sweetness that I found a bit cloying.

Pours clear copper with an off white head. Sweet sugary and carmel aroma. Flavour is not as sweet as aroma leads you to believe. All in all easy to drink and enjoy.

A standard in BC where it is brewed. Blue buck is the go to beer when you dont know what you want but still want something sessionable and pallateable. Somewhat floral, but keeps the true qualities of an ale.
