4.44/5  rDev +31.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured into a standard pint glass...

a: light amber, nice clarity. light foam.

s: fruity, biscuit, toast, light caramel, no hop aroma.

t: bread crust, light toast. medium bitter in english terms. very light alcohol.

m: light carbonation. bitter, dry finish.

o: this beer is a fantastic example of what an english mild should be. i think most of the low marks come from people expecting an american amber style. this beer nails the mild style, if anything might be a little too big. if you are expecting an american amber or an esb style beer then you will be highly disappointed. this historic style is what helped keep man alive when you couldn't drink the water. it brings a huge smile to my face when i see breweries give homage to such styles instead of trying to pack another 100 ibu's into the next hop bomb. well done!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

We pour a brew of rich amber honey coloring into our Great Lakes pint glasses. It holds a one and a half finger tall head of tan, soapy bubbles, showing okay retention. Spots of lacing are left as this goes, but these are minimal. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be moderately active. The aroma gives notes of rich roasted malts, light chocolate and hazelnut essence, mocha coffee bean fumes, raw honey, oat grit and dust, soft pseudo-woodiness, damp paper towels, tin foil, and chalky yeasted breadiness. Our first impression is that the flavoring is quite simple, but nicely robust and inclusive roast and toast characteristic of the style. As we sip, the flavoring opens with wheat, roasty coffee and chocolate malts, dried dog food nibbles, carrot and celery vegetals, general yeastiness, tins and aluminums, lemony sours, and Tootsie pop sugars. The middle peaks with milk chocolate brownie sugars, lactic and vinegar sours, dirty English brown malts, distant grassy hops, oily caramel sugars, faint molasses bite, phenolic plastics, raw oat, and cereal grain. The end washes through with a definitive cleansing bowl of grassy hop bite, thin caramel and burnt coffee maltiness, basement mustiness, rich English brown malt sours, rubbers and unworked leathers, toffee sugars, and synthetic vanilla and hazelnut coffee extracts. The aftertaste breathes of cheap and stale chocolate cake icing, bittering roast of coffee malts, biting grassy and herbal hop rumbles, cheddar cheese mustiness, continued tin, brown bread grit, cold plum pudding, and beet vegetals. The body is lightly medium, and the carbonation is light to medium. Each sip gives thin cream, froth, slurp, smack, or glug, but coats the mouth fully, and gives it a bit of a wandering pucker. The palate is left lightly dried, with mild astringency to boot. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks decently enough.

Overall, the best thing about this beverage is its ease of drinkability, in line with its stylistic guidelines. It is certainly not the most exciting beer when it comes to flavor or aroma, as it has that dirty, dog food type of bite. Regardless, there is enough flavor and presentation to present the drinker with at least a unique style of beer. It goes down without complaint, and is nice for someone looking for an “in between” sipper that isn’t too dark, but isn’t too light. As always we’re excited to try a local brewery for the first time, and again, are super happy that this is a bizarre, underrepresented style. This won’t become a fridge favorite for us, but we will certainly look for other beers of this producer to see what they’ve got to round out their arsenal.

This interestingly named beer looks the part of a traditional dark mild, sort of a reddish-brown that only achieves complete clarity when held to the light, but only because of its dark color. The head is short-lived and spritzy, dying down before it has a chance to form more than a small island that remains. It manages sub-par spotting.
It smells better than I might think looking at it. Esters are spicy and fruity foremost with the faintest hint of leaf along with a little bit of earth and some creamier sweetness, with a metallic note underlying.
The taste underwhelms, as it just seems to go flat and lose much of what the nose received. It ends up being flat grains with slight spicing and a watery breadiness. It's disappointing after a nice smell. Leaf sneaks weakly into the finish, and the metallic note flashes in and out.
The feel is also flat. There's a barely-medium body, but both smoothness and crispness are fairly weak. It's not that there isn't crispness, but it's barely holding on the whole way through. This is where either something's wrong or the brewer determined that lighter body meant thin and watery. It's not dead, but it's dying.

I got a bottle of Motor City Brewing's Ghettoblaster in their new variety pack for $20 at The Lager Mill. I've seen this beer around many times, but I don't think I've ever had it and it's been a little while since I've had an English Dark Mild Ale, so lets see how it goes. No visible bottling date. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a new school tattoo look to it and I like the combination of an engine and a boombox and I think the combination of name and the label makes it fairly eye catching. It poured a nice clear amber color that took on a ruby copper color when held to the light with two fingers worth of off white head that died died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some pretty nice patchy lacing behind. This is a pretty good looking beer, It looks true to style and I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness followed by a good amount of malts being the first to show up and they impart a nice pale malt, biscuity, toasted malts and light caramel like aromas with a really slight nutty aroma. Up next comes a little bit of fruity yeast followed by some earthy, grassy, and slight herbal hop aromas. This beer had a pretty nice aroma, I have no complaints.

T- The taste seems to be fairly similar to the aroma and it starts off with a lower amount of medium sweetness followed by loads of malts that impart a very grainy, pale malt, toasted malt, light caramel and biscuit like flavors that are a pretty good combination and the nutty aspect seems to be a little stronger than it was in the aroma. Up next comes a very light amount of fruity yeast that is barely noticeable and there's also a doughy flavor in the background. On the finish there's a pretty light amount of hops that impart a pretty light earthy and herbal hop flavor with a pretty low amount of bitterness with a very grainy and toasted malt like aftertaste. This was a pretty nice tasting beer and I think it's fairly true to style.

M- Smooth, clean, a little crisp, slightly creamy, medium bodied with a good amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel was pretty nice and it worked well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and a good example and a pretty true to style example of an English Dark Mild Ale, I don't have a ton of experience with this style, but this beer tastes pretty much just how I remember a good English Dark Mild Ale tasting and I think Motor City Brewing did a good job at representing the style. This beer had good drinkability, it was smooth, clean, a little crisp, not filling and the taste did a good job of holding my attention, I could see myself drinking more than a few of these, I think it's pretty sessionable and I think this would make for a good beer to pair a meal with. What I like the most about this beer was how true to style it is, it's just a good example of the style and it's just what I look for in an English Dark Mild Ale and I don't see many of those. What I liked the least about this beer was nothing, there nothing that I dislike or would change, it's fine just the way it is. I would buy this beer again and I'll try and I remember to pick up a six pack next time I go on a beer run. I would recommend this beer to just about anyone, I think it's really accessible. All in all I was little impressed with this beer, I was a little let down with their Lager but this beer turned out to be pretty good and I'm starting to think that the English Ales are what this brewery specializes in. I think this beer is on the same level as their Nut Brown Ale. Good job guys, I enjoyed this one, keep up the good work.

3.16/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: brownish orange color. good clarity, just a slight haze to it. almost no head with just a little bit of an off white lacing.

Smell: toasty pale malts. almost smells like its exclusively maris otter malt. very slight fruitiness.

Taste: toasty to nutty pale malts. just a touch of dark fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: light. just a hinge of a metallic taste.

Overall: to me this style is supposed to be a light beer that is relatively packed with taste. this one isn't nearly as flavorful as the style allows, the flavor isn't too bad just way to weak. In a blind tasting of 4 dark mild (ghettoblaster, new castle cabbie, short's earl or brixom and a homebrew, it placed last.)

Drawn from the tap into a pint glass.

Appearance: A cloudy brown. There was scant foam that dissipated to almost nothing.

Aroma: A slight sourness with some malt.

Taste: Bready and somewhat sweet with a mild hops presence. The lingering taste is of the hops, but it's not too strong..

Mouthfeel: There's not too much body, but it's OK.

Overall: This beer doesn't seem to be a great example of this style, but it's OK. I wouldn't go out of my way to get this beer, but I'd have another under the right circumstances.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ghettoblaster is unfiltered and comes with a good amount of sediment in the bottle and yet is relatively clear. Its sun-beaten amber colour is deep but glows to the light. Its head is fine but persistent and sits atop the liquid like a layer of white moss.

Ghettoblaster is "the beer you can hear" but you can definitely smell it too. Leaving the ale unpasteurized has allowed aromatic yeasty esters to thrive; the glass smells like a heaping pile of bruised fruits (banana, red apple, prune) thoroughly doused in anise spice and clove.

The beer is more mild in alcohol content than it is in flavour. As in the bouquet, fruity esters and spicy phenols of all kinds blossom in thanks to a healthy yeast. Granted, pleasant though the bruised banana-and-anise profile is, it's not typical of an English-style Mild Ale.

The beer's biscuity maltiness and subtle toffee backdrop is closer to what I was expecting to find. They're there, but they take backseat to the yeast. Hops aren't entirely out of the mix either; there is an underlying earthiness that lends a short-lived bitterness.

Ghettoblaster turns up the volume on a style that is typically anything but loud. Not surprising given it's made in Detroit Rock City. While I suspect some of this added personality comes accidentally by way of an overactive yeast, I found it an enjoyable lower-strength offering nonetheless. I'll look to try more from Motor City Brewing Works.

Had this on tap at the Park Bar in Detroit. Nice looking, dark-copper color with a decent sized head, although not much lacing was left on the glass at the end. The smell has a lot going on that can be hard to pin-point: earthy, malts, burnt grains, light citrus, a touch of floral hops. The taste, much like the smell would lead on, is slightly sweet with a nice mix of malts and grains. Hops are present, but very faint (maybe overpowered by the grain). Alcohol taste is nearly non-existant, making this a decent session beer. Fairly thin with medium carbonation and a very slight stickiness.

A nice product from Motor City Brewing, Ghettoblaster makes for a very nice session beer when you plan on drinking a bit.

This is so-so. The head was absolutely ridiculous at first. I ended up spooning it out as it would have been like waiting for cupcake frosting to dissipate. Mild tone on the flavor with citrus and a lot of malts are clearly there. Mild? Certainly. Also, a mild example of the style.

On draft at the Michigan Brewers' Guild in Ypsi. This pours amber into my little plastic cup. Does not smell like much, maybe a slight malt in the nose--this is certainly mild. Where is the flavor?? I know this is a "mild ale", but there's just nothing here. Tastes like watered down pilsner malts, really no hop influence, and little to no sweetness. The finish is rather dry and boring, and I'm not really sure what I'm drinking here. Not offensive in any way, mainly because there's nothing here.

A solid offering from MCBW. Like all of their beers, Ghetto Blaster is an ideal session beer. The mouth feel is watery, carbonation is pretty low, and the taste isn't overpowering. Although the taste of this one threw me off a little at first, I quickly grew to like it and wound up getting a pint of it when my sampler was finished. Appropriately enough, this beer has a "mild" caramel/roasty sort of flavor to it. Nice to enjoy now and then.

Not the best beer I've had, but it's a safe, enjoyable one. Would buy again.

Motor city brew works goes all the way in the perfection of this beer. All of the flavor of a good English ale but not too heavy. By far one of the best beers I've ever had. If you like new castle, you will love this beer. A must try when visiting midtown Detroit.

Appearance is a cloudy off-yellow with off-white head and decent lacing.

Nose is mild hops, lemon candy, and light grain.

Taste is like a mild Scotch ale. It lacks the dully sour punch, but has the same essence. There is also some pleasant graininess.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and light; excellent drinkability.

Overall, this is a great brew to mindfully knock back at a bowling alley or somewhere else where you only want to minimally think about what you are drinking.

A: This poured clear gold with a little white head.

T: It tasted like light caramel and earthy barley, with some copper and herbal hops. It had a mild and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. A bit thin.
D: This was actually my first review for this style, and it ended up being about what I expected. Not a bad beer, but not a really great scent or taste or body either. Easy enough to drink, and a step up from macro lagers, but not on par with the majority of other craft beers.

Pours clear amber in color with bubbles racing up the brew to a big 2 finger foamy off white head that faded quickly and looked like soap after a bubble bath with a foamy layer on top, leaving decent lacing as it went down.

Smells very malty and grainy, with light caramel, husk, grass, light citrus hops, crackers and herbs or earthy tones; the aroma was sweet and like a summer afternoon after mowing the lawn - a very timid nose overall.

Tastes like sweet malt, roasted grains, light caramel, light citrus hops, cardboard or wet bread, grass, biscuit, fruit and/or honey, and some funky yeast. This flavor would make for a great session beer if this wasn't so unbalanced, malty and boring.

Mouthfeel is very light and crisp with mild carbonation, a very light body and a slightly bitter finish that is clean.

A light overall feel, this beer is easy to pound, just not very tasty. It was just too blah to me, so I would skip it in a bar, but I will pound the rest of the 6 pack in one sitting.

On tap at the brewery.

Appearance - light brown, verging on amber, with a small white head.

Smell - very light grainy malt, a hint of floral hops.

Taste - Mildly malty, grain and a bit of hops, very mild bitterness.

Overall, this beer is very drinkable, but very mild. As I have never tasted a mild before, I am going to assume that's part of the style.

I'm not the best person to review this, not having had a mild before, but

A - Dark Brown. Light suds.

S - Grainy/malty.

T - Mild malt is pretty great. Not overpowering or acrid like roasted malt, not boring like base malt. Nice light graininess. Really it's own thing. Light flavor without going BMC. Not much bitterness, no hop flavor or aroma, but not much expected.

M - Nice medium body mouthfeel considering the lower level of grain used in milds. Light carb.

O - Pretty enjoyable. Great for summertime or winter, and with a nice twist to the standard grain type.

This pours a medium brown with a one finger white head that fades quickly and leaves no lace. There is a definite color fade towards the edges, medium brown to maybe something like amber brown. On the nose there is wet grain sticking out up front with a deep pine buried underneath that comes out when agitated. The grain almost smells like oatmeal. Buried even further down are some prunes or dates or some other dark fruit that makes me wish the nose were more balanced. In the mouth the dark fruit comes out a whole lot, riding the grain underneath with some bitterness lingering later on in the medium finish. The body is quite light, almost watery. A mild can be made to be a bit fuller at a lower ABV, and I would have preferred that approach: say 4% alcohol but with more lingering flavors.

Overall this beer is alright, and with some tweaking I think it would be really good. As it stands, the nose is good but unbalanced and the whole affair is just a little too light, even considering the style.

Served on tap at the Michigan Winter beer fest. I ticked this very early since I've been trying to tick this style forever. About 6oz served in a tasting glass.

A: Partly cloudy orange golden hue. Tiny bit of off white head. Some soapy lace left behind.

S: Grassy wet hops. Not a super strong hop profile. Mild pale malts and a touch of grainy/ corn.

T: Pale malts and a good amount of corn/grain. Again hops that have been dunked in in rain water. A bit of a metallic finish.

M: Medium to light body. Not thin but more towards light. Carbonation is very moderate.

D: Overall nothing offensive which I'm sure is what they are shooting for. I could sown a few of these on a hot day.

Thanks to my buddy Eric for sending this along from MI (thankfully it was in a care-package that included some priceless Jolly Pumpkin & Shorts). He even insisted that he just "threw this in, it's not very good".

I can only imagine that the Motor City Brew Co. named this beer Ghettoblaster because it's just that; gimcky, loud, tacky and not good at all - unless you are already drunk... then it's just there to keep the party going.

Bland tang as the boring malts try with all their might to keep this thing drinkable.

Sorry guys, next time I enjoy a "ghettoblaster", it better be blasting Too $hort's - Life is too short.

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent honey-mahogany. Malty, woody, slightly sweet aroma is not strong but still appealing. Malty flavor has honey-sweet and woody undertones along with hints of hops and spice. Fairly smooth, tingly texture gives it a decent finish.

T- Roasted almost burnt malt flavors with a bit of bitterness and at the finish some of the sweetness of the dark fruits comes through albeit brief as the aftertaste is smokey malt.
M- Thin with minimal, almost no, carbonation. Comes across a little flat in the mouth.
D- Not the best representative for this style of beer as it just doesn't have enough going for it in all categories. It is what it is, an average beer.

t - follows smell, but adds a bit of complexity. tasting a bit of raisin or fig maybe? hop character is more tart than bitter, with a long finish.

m - on the lighter side with a decent amount of carbonation. nothing fancy here.

d - a session brew for sure. kegs of ghettoblaster seem to be the default choice for gallery openings and other art related activities in and around detroit.

Appearance: Dark amber color that is semi-transparent. Had a pretty small head.

Smell: Has a strong malty aroma that is very pleasant and inviting.

Taste: Kind of a sweet malty taste that is not very complex; but it is very smooth and very refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Pretty thin without being too much so. There's just enough body to keep me from thinking it feels like a Light Lager.

Drinkability: This is pretty good. I admit that I tried this beer just because I thought the name was ridiculous. I was pleasantly surprised, though, when I got a beer that is good and is something I could drink again.

A-light brownish amber w/no head despite increasingly aggressive pour. I had this one on tap the other day w/a nice head, so this seems to be limited to this bottle.

S-Light slightly sweet toasted malt and faint hops. Simple and refreshing.

T-Same as smell, w/slight hint of applesauce, raisin, grain, and faint English hop finish.

M-Silky body let down by inadequate carbonation, but otherwise balance is even and harmonious.

D-Good and a perfect session beer. I used to drink this about 9 years ago, and was looking forward to finally rating it, but this bottle my bro saved me is nowhere near as good as the on-tap version I had the other day, or as in my memory.
