The story of Doss Blockos

’...the mole people then join the search, but they were real. There is no actual manifesto that evolved from the underground New York movement in the late 1990s, which is when we first brewed beneath the city’s railway systems. Our beer surfaced when squats started surfacing all around the Lower East Side, before those people came...’

Doss Blockos has been stripped bare of anything but the essential taste we could ream from the specialty pale malt and cascade hops we have always used.

Kinda ok. A little citrus, spice, pepper. Dry with no dumb notes. Almost light in the palate but does not lack intensity. Really quite good quaffing.

330ml bottle from DMs (wrapped in a brown paper bag). Clear dark golden with a medium white head. Sweet honey malts dominate the nose and tongue with a light hop presence. Sweet finish, light-medium body. I think many standard Euro lagers are better.

Gold pour with a tight white head. Floral, slightly perfumey aroma, malt, fairly light aroma - nice to smell a lager that doesn’t have that euro funk. Malty, slightly sweet, a little fruit and again that floral note to it. Very easy to drink - not bad at all

Bootlegger007 (92) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2015
Thanks Hitchy. Fruity aroma apple and pear, lightly floral, golden colour with a small diminishing white head, refreshing flavour leaving a light bitter aftertaste, medium bodied session pale lager.

Low hop aroma. Pale golden with good white head. Clean taste with low bitterness and balanced malt - no detectable flaws. Light body with lively carbonation. Clean, finish with low bitterness. A well crafted lager

Lagerboy (1738) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow, healthy white lasting froth. Sweet grainy lager malt aroma. Taste is mostly bland bready lightly sweet pale lager malt with a hint of floral citrus. Softer than average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Forgettable. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a quickly fading head, smooth and slightly fruity. Not a bad effort.

Ngejo (567) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - SEP 29, 2014

madquacker (1085) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2014
Fine citrus note over an orange pale ale hue. A little sweet and not much on the carbonation side. A nice change never the less.

ALLOVATE (2771) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Good concept done badly or fringe concept done really well?..., in lies the ol’ brown paper bag! A pale lager, and out of Melbourne too; birthplace of the mocco wearing ’ocker’ larrikin known proudly pulling up trumps as the bogan. Then what the hell is the label reading some story of mole people in the U.S, late 90’s? (could be a little ignorance on my part!)
Chilled and into a Mexican tumbler - I don’t know; seemed fitting. Tawny amber with moderate, fine effervescence and a soppy, lasting white foam that daubs a split lace. Aroma of kelp, salted corn chips and dank, old cardboard left rotting in the rain - a bit putrid to be harsh! Nutty and soapy palate. Vienna malz? Biscuity with a metallic tinge. Medium-light bodied with a foamy mouthfeel. Nutty, woody length. Plenty of malt does actually make up for the horrendous aroma - a possibility I thought null and void. Cascade hops are nowhere to be seen - peppery touch of hops more reminiscent of something Noble in there late. This was late night enchilada accompaniment more than lawnmower beer, which says little. Overall..., just plain confused! Brown paper bag anyone!?! (33cL, BB 29/05/15, Dan Murphy’s, Cannington)
