Phillips Blue Buck

Phillips Blue Buck
Ratebeer 2.79 29th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

The nose is slightly floral hoppy and bready; more so than one might expect from a six pack beer. Nicely carbonated. Very nice balance of toffee/caramel malts and floral hop bitterness. There is a medium mouth feel about this brew. You can also pick up slight fruits (apricot and pineapple).

Aftertaste +1

Not much left, very clean and dry. Only the slightest of toffee malt is mixed with apricots at the end.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Just as expected from a box six-pack.

Value +1

This is good everyday beer. All this for $12 a six pack, its a great deal.

Ingame Enhancement 0

No gaming tonight; I got called into work after hours. This was my reward when I got home.

Overall 5/10

It's good beer. A bit more flavourful than your average boxed pale ale. I always forget how much I like this beer.
