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.

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...

Tallboy can from LCBO in Ottawa. Hazy amber pour with thin fizzy head. Crisp lemon hoppy lager aroma - good. Taste is crisp pine hops with a lot of malt too. Not as exciting as some other IPLs I've had but not bad.

Aroma dominated by hops - mostly grass aromas with a touch of light pine/spruce. Malts are pretty subdued, with just a bit of bread/grain flavors. Appearance is an attractive amber with a slight cloudiness. Alcohol is average; body is medium; carbonation is just slightly lively; finish is medium to long, dominated by the hops. Not much sweetness. A touch acidic in flavor. Overall a fairly decent IPL, though a bit on the simple, one-dimensional side.

On tap at VCBW Festival, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Nose and flavour of skunky herbal notes and a prominent astringency. Not very pleasant at all. Not too good.

750ml bottle from Pasquier, thanks to my wife. Aroma: caramel, grapes, cereals. App: hazy copper, minimal off white head, shy lacing. Taste and palate: light body, light sweetness, light acidity, light bitter finish. Overall: pretty bland. Palate is not so good, not well balanced. Didn’t enjoy it at all. Dp

341 ml bottle. (5.3% ABV) Pours a hazy dark amber-orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Mild caramel malt aroma with grain and wood. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, caramel malt, pine and grass with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Meh.
