COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Served in a paper bag, was told by the girlfriend to get rid of paper bag asap as was looking a little bit like a homeless person. Beer was nice, sweet and malty was the major impression. Sessionable beverage.

Lagerboy (1333) - 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.

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 (2475) - 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)

Nice aroma, but unfortunately it doesn't leave a very nice taste in the mouth

This beer pours a beautiful pale amber with a tight white head. Pine on the nose but the taste is a little bit lacking. Nice beer

Pyobon (976) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2014
(Bottle) Clear golden with small short-lived head. Aroma is grassy, slightly metallic with hints of candy. Light body with good amount if fine carbonation. Taste is simple and basic, but within that constraint quite reasonable. There’s a nice balance of some light malt sweetness and some light tartness, with some reasonable hoppy bitterness to finish. Simple, refreshing and easily drinkable. [The paper bag was beige / tan with an interesting logo printed in dense black ink. The aroma was papery. The body was very substantial, it was thick paper with a rough to fluffy surface. I omitted to taste the bag, so cannot comment on the flavour other than surmising it would be similar to the aroma. The bag was well matched to the bottle, rendering it essentially useless for repurposing, however, in its context, it rates very highly on the hedonic scale.]

Bottle from misty. Tastes quite hoppy for a lager. Grassy hops and biscuit malts. Pretty solid for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
