Phillips Snowcase 2014 Calendar Day #7
- My Rating: [D+], I gave it a (2.2 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Blue Buck (English Pale Ale) – Phillips Brewing, 5% ABV – 341ml., (Victoria, BC, Canada)
more info about this beer can be found on their Snowcase website:
on the front-right label:
“It’s always open season to bag a few of these session ales. Bronze in colour, this medium bodied beer is characterized by distinct north-west hops & complemented by a robust malt flavour. The result, a well balanced and highly drinkable ale with a crisp finish.”
- Style: English Pale Ale
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no
Visual: Pours clear light brown with a small dissipating head, a nice clean thin layer of retention, lots of varied speed/size activity.
Nose: sweet barley malt, some bread. (lvl-5)-pungency
Mid-palate: fizzy-tingly, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) barley malt, mild citrus
Finish: grainy-bread, semi-sweet malt finish.
Summary: Pretty boring, just sweet barley malt, not much hop profile or anything else.
