COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Carrot orange colour with an orange off white head. Frothy head that sticks around and caps the unfiltered body. Fresh wet hoppy aromas swith some citrus notes balanced in the flavours. The bitterness is subtle at first and reveals itself quickly and then fades.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip: Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of biscuit malt, grass, and light lemon. Taste is more of the same, light citrus notes with a solid, clean lager backbone. Not very aggressive, but it’s a nice beer.

Lubiere (11945) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
A hazed Dark amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, pleasant biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light resinous grassy character, nice. In mouth, a nice crisp biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light mineral notes, very decent. On tap at Caplan sky’s, Terminal 3, YYZ.

KoNrRiI (961) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2015
0.473 can. Hazy, orange color and a medium, off-white head of standard retention. Aroma of hops, grass, strong yeasts, hay, flowers. Taste is bitter, hoppy, floral, but with a malt-yeasty backbone. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is shortish, more balanced but not particularly amazing either. Overall not a bad beer, nothing extraordinary though.

On tap at madison, orange coloured, smells decently hoppy and tropical, flavour is hoppy as well, light bodied, fairly straightforward.

Tranquillity (1644) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
Can at Pearson airport. It looks proper, half-hazy with a big off-white head with small bubbles. The aroma is like a lager, nothing special but not bad. The taste is interesting at first, but the combination of the dry hops and the fresh lager turns it into something that reminds me of cardboard. Good and creative try, but this combo doesn’t fly.

Gerbeer (2693) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
On tap. Pours a dark copper color with moderate head. Aromas of wet cardboard and sweet malts. Flavors of wet malts, grain, som pine and more cardboard. Long bitter grassy/papery finish.

mzaar (2420) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2015
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.

ryanhunter_4 (180) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
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.
