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.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - JUN 2, 2013
Drank on tap at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, May 30, 2013. Honey amber, medium head. Aroma hops a little sweet, a little fruity cereal. Taste of green and dry hops, not very tasty, not bad bitterness. This is a typical beer commercial or false micro beer!

Nice. More of an IPP, as In pilsner. I say this because most IPLs have an underlying smoothness, but this has more of a springiness to it. Other than that, I like this one. (And yes, I do know an pilsner is a lager.)

Agtronic (22) - Laval, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
On tap at La Belle et la Boeuf burger bar in Laval. Appearance is murky, almost muddy looking. No head whatsoever, not looking very appetizing. Aroma is hoppy and promising. Taste is decently bitter up front and goes into a sort of "soapy" direction. I don’t even know how to describe it. I had difficulty finishing the pint. To its defense, it was served way too warm.

bunget (548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
473ml can. Clear amber-orange body, big beige fluffy head with decent retention. Aroma is a bit dusty: resins, yeast, apricots, coriander. Taste of good herbal hops, caramel malt, a touch of yeast and grapefruit zest, bready aftertaste. Nicely balanced.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
473ml can. Copper in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is more malty upfront, caramel, light citrus. The flavour is moderately sweet, caramel malts, some hop bitterness. Finishes long, dry. Its alright.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Amber pour. Thin white head. Aroma is candied fruity grassy caramel. Marmalade. Flavour is caramel malt, lighter than expected hop. Caramel and herbal hop. Light fruit. Vastly different from aroma. Decent enough for a hop pier creemore offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RickTheRick (375) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
De couleur ambrée et très trouble, la mousse pas tout à fait blanche est assez mince, mais laisse une jolie dentelle derrière elle. Des houblons floraux et un malt sucré constituent le bouquet de cette bière. Les houblons sont présents en bouche, mais c’est très léger, rien d’agressant. L’amertume en finale est douce et le malt caramel est bien présent, peut-être même trop. Comparable à IPA de McAuslan et celle de Boréale.

Bouteille de 625 ml achetée chez IGA Extra Tellier (Saint-Léonard, QC). Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel et d’houblon. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’houblon et de fruité. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #5700)

Bootrack (2) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014 does not count
Malty with subtle bitterness. Mild nuttiness with a pleasant hop aroma. Copper color with a formidable head and abundant amount of lace left on the glass.

veronneaupy (132) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Grains et amertume au nez. Le goût ne laisse place qu'à l'amertume. Une finale qui s'estompe vite. Belle étiquette pour un produit très commercial. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
