Mad & Noisy is a new small batch series from Creemore Springs Brewery, named after the two rivers that merge and flow through the village of Creemore. The first release is Hops & Bolts India Pale Lager, a Czech twist on an English IPA. Hops & Bolts IPL is a bit lighter than an IPA, but a bit fuller than your golden lager, featuring a pithy bitterness that blends to a silky balancing malt sweetness. In the glass, you’ll see a slight unfiltered haze which settles to a bright orange-cedar colour and a dense, lingering off-white head. The big hoppy aroma features a blend of light tropical fruits and bold piney and grassy notes.

Fat. Mörk bärnstensfärgad med ett stort smutsvitt skum. Dofter av karamell, grapefrukt, trä och malt. Smakinslag av malt, gräs, karamell och grapefrukt. Alkoholen sticker igenom, men är ändå inte påstridig. Lätt oljig munkänsla.

Pint poured at shoeless joes in Toronto. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head and lots of lacing. Not much smell. Taste is slightly bitter with hops and a bit of citrus. Drinkable but not perfect.

Started of the party yesterday splitting this with Andy. I should have picked something better to start with and had this later. Poured amber with thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Medium bodied. Pronounced hoppy bitterness that lingers.

Oh bull, did I just drink a Coors beer? Fuck. Eh, anyway. Had it on tap at Sin & Redemption in Toronto, ABV was 5%. Hazy darkish amber. Head with nice retention and lace. Earthy hoppy nose, rather strange herbal/floral notes. As the hops fade slowly, it gets fuller, very malty, nutty, even slightly chocolaty. Bitter taste - wouldn’t guess it to be a hoppy lager. Nutty malts. Goes down easy, especially after some spicy food, the carbonation is rather mellow, the body light to medium. It’s very nice, I like how it evolves. Perfect for the moment, be it a Coors...

Can in Toronto. Richer, more amber-malted lager body, not too strong or syrupy. Hops are present and crisp, but a bit metallic overall. Solid.

Aroma is spicy and metallic. Sold to me as IPA so not as expected. Nice amber pour with a good head. Tastes of spices and bittersweet herbs. Medium to heavy body. Not exactly a strong pils.

473ml can. 5.3% abv not as listed here. Definitely not a strong lager. Amber pour, soapy head. Lager and herb aroma. Flavor is super spicy, just striaght spicy hops, if you like an abnormal blast of pukey english hops by all means go for it.

Aroma is slightly sweet, with coriander and orange peel in the background. Quite pleasant. Taste is sweet malts - a little chewy but mostly really smooth - with some dark fruits and a little citrus. Really good.

Bière "dégustée" en fût dans le Vieux Québec en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. Bière ambrée et parfaitement filtrée affichant une belle mousse off-white laissant beaucoup de dentelles sur mon verre. Beaucoup de bulles en provenance du fond de verre également. Le look de la bière est clairement son point fort. J’eusse beaucoup apprécié une bière non filtrée mais enfin. Arômes très très légères de céréales et de levures Pilsner bon marché. En bouche, le liquide n’a aucune densité. Aqueux, pétillant certes mais mis à part le léger goût de céréales plutôt fade, mes papilles ne détectent rien et sont clairement en manque d’une amertume qui fait atrocement défaut ici. Aucun arrière-goût et courte en bouche, c’est une bière d’après-midi d’été lorsque la discussion nous détourne de l’acte de déguster. Disons que j’enviais tout de même beaucoup la Fin Du Monde que Irina buvait devant moi pendant le temps que nous avons été là...
