I believe this was also called Rubia at the bar. Fruity roasty aroma. Amber-clear with an off-white head. Equally unimpressive as their other.

Tap at the brewpub. Neutral aroma. Cloudy orange yellow, white lace. Nice fruity base, sufficient hop balance, light mineral notes. Ok chewyness. Pleasant. Having it on plaza de santa Ana on a unusually warm april evening adds to the score.

Unfortunately, I didn’t think ahead and ended up having this after the Tostada, which was too bitter. I’m sure the bitter of the previous beer impacted my rating (so if I get a chance I’ll go back and try this one before anything heavy). Dark yellow pour, cloudy, tending towards brown. Head dissipated quickly. There was a hint of citrus in the flavor -- some of the people in my party who had it thought it was too wheaty -- it did have the cloudy appearance and citrus feel of a wheat beer, but didn’t really feel like a wheat (and isn’t identified as such above). Not bitter (though I’d had a too-bitter beer previously so I don’t know how bitter this really was). Good blend of flavor.

Half pint at the Naturbier brewery pub in Madrid 5/13 during Atletico de Madrid UEFA cup winning celebration. Not bad.

Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of fruit, Pils malt, and hops. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of pale malts, pils malts, hops, and slight yeast. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Pils malt finish is lightly bitter.

On tap at the brewpub, Madrid. Cloudy golden, steady and creamy head. Malty aroma. Sweet flavours, some spicy and grassy hops towards the finish. Quenches thirst.

Half liter draft at brewpub. I gave this a similar score as the Tostada: average beer overall. It is a pils, but it is very cloudy and kind of wheaty and sweet for that style. Thin body, medium carbonation, and has the same weird bitter aftertaste as the tostada. An easy drinking, non-adventurous but solid lager. But cheers to the brewers in Madrid! Not many here.

Draught. Hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Fresh malt and bread aroma with some yeast. Good filling mouthfeel. Pleasant fresh hoppish, bit wheaty sweetish flavour with malt and a good bitter tingerling finish. After just being to Magister 3 minutes away this was really good!

At brew pub in Central Madrid. Very boring beer, but you got to hand it to this place for intervening into the shitbox Spanish beer scene which is dominated by rubbish lagers. This actually has some malt character and some hops. A little too sweet for such a weak abv though.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy golden color with small head. Malty aroma with grainy and grassy hints. Malty, honeyish and slightly fruity flavor. Very basic and simple helles. Somewhat one dimensional but it goes well with the food.
