yespr (30938) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2007
From tap at the brewpub (on tap as Helles). Pours golden yellow, medium clear, with a dense white head. Slight sweet and cornish aroma. Flavour starts soft malty, slight sweet with a very smooth mouthfeel. Mellow finish, again rather soft malty and not very bitter at all. Nice. Shows some great lacework on the glass when finished.

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy blond color. Very nice Pilsener, malty taste and very good Saaz hops in the aroma, flavor and palate, coming in waves of dryness and sweetness. Excellent one.

faroeviking (10290) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 9, 2009
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!

Ughsmash (7125) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
On tap at Naturbier. Poured a clear brighter golden with a short, creamy white head. Crisp and bready aroma with hints of caramel and grassy hops.. sweet and quite pleasant. Sweet, lightly-toasted bready malts in the flavor along with light grains at the core.. mild herbal and faint citrusy bitterness. Tasty. Light-bodied and somewhat grainy on the palate.. sweet, dry, and refreshing.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
In short: A yeasty blonde lager of some kind. Unpolished session lager.
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Partly cloudy dark blonde body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose is yellowed hay, some fruits. In mouth the beer has an expansive foamy body supported by a lively carbonation, pleasant mouthfeel. Taste is both nourishing and refreshing. Fresh straws and hay, honey, a mix-bag of fresh acidic fruits, yeast, mild herbal hops presence. Sharp finish with a mild acidity. There’s no actual problem with this beer but I cannot call it a good beer, I thought the yeast was too upfront and the malts lack definition. Anyway, the tourist friendly Naturbier is not exactly the most exciting brewpub in the world, I suspect people who find the beers from this brewpub exciting are the kind of people who type “tender love making” in porn sites search boxes.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Light golden yellow color, really hazy. Nice firm bright white head. Drinks with a grainy and sweet character. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish, in a mushy way. Nice break from the plethora of Spanish macro-lagers. (#4834, 11/2012)

jonas (5622) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 20, 2011
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.

caesar (5059) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2005
Slightly hazy yellow, short head. Hoppy aroma, some grain and malt. Bitter taste. Decent brew, nothing special.
