Metalman Pale Ale 3.1
Ar- light malt sweetness and hints of baked bread are joined by hop tangerine, apricot and ripe pineapple, Ap- pours a lightly hazed, dark gold with nice white head. Fl- malty sweetness is quickly replaced by hop bitterness. The tropical fruits are present here but this all seems a bit disjointed and a tad worty. Mf- medium bodied, dry / hop bitter finish. Meh Ov- like the nose here but the flavor is just too all over the place. I'd bump the malt complexity and scale down on the hop bitterness. This is way more of a session IPA than a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalman Heat Sink 3.5
Pours dark brown with no head. Smooth with low carbonation. Roast hops, bitter porter, with chilli flavour, especially prominent in the finish (cayenne pepper). Tasty and very drinkable. A nice twist on a porter

Can from OíBrienís in Dun Laoghaire. Appearance: Cola black, medium brown head. Aroma: slightly smokey with some definite pepper/chilli in there too, mild chocolate and malt. Flavour: chocolate and cayenne, lightly smoked, a little nutmeg, some lovely spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is light, would like it to have some more depth but itís quite nice.

Draught at The Bierhaus. Dark amber with a slightly off-white head. Resin aroma with some sweet malts. Hops come through more in the flavour. Pine and resin with a dry finish and lasting bitterness. Not their best, but not bad.

Metalman Spring 3.5
cask at Franciscan well winterfest
Bright lemony citrus on nose follows through to body, quite assertive in flavour, with almost washing up liquid like lemoniness with a herbal thyme note in behind. The peppercorn isnít overly noticable however and the cask conditioning means the finish draws on a bit too long becoming cloying. Nice concept that needs tweaking.

Metalman Heat Sink 3.6
Can from Bierhaus. Deep mahogany pour with a slightly tan head. Smoky, malty oak aroma. Mild pepper flavour gives a nice fresh hit to cut through the other smoky and stale notes. Works weirdly well.

Metalman Orange is the new Black 3.2
keg at the Bierhaus, Cork
hazy dark brown-black with beige lacing, slight citrus on nose which unfortunately doesnít make it into the taste (spoke to brewster Grainne about it, she confirms it was a function of the carbonation stage at packaging - shame) Moderately carbonated, fairly full in body, cocoa, pine and light floral/citrus perfume

Nice heat that warms the cockles. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with a balanced chilli heat. This works and could fall down. Excellent.

Metalman / Hardknott Yerba 3.4
Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown colour, big frothy off-white head. Aroma is at first rich in chocolate, but then turns sharply into vegetable territory; odd. Taste is the same: you would say it to be a porter at first, but then it becomes something pretty unusual, rich in spice territory, tea especially (?!); medium sweet, medium sour. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Surprising beer, it might even work!
