The secret to pouring a good Madrid draft-beer is the temperature, very cold, with two-fingers width of head on the beer. It is a form of art. First the waiters put the glass upside down on a small sprinkler system, located just below the tap, rinsing out the glass, the excess water on the surface of the beer glass oxygenates the beer allowing for a great head and body. The inclination of the glass is very important; you must lean it slightly and let some of the beer out slowly tilting it upright until the beer slightly over fills the glass, have look at the video below:

We recommend the following bars, where locals go for some of the best Spainsh tapas in Madrid alongside a well poured Madrid style draft-beer.
La Ardosa (calle Colon 13) This is a classic Madrid tavern, it is not only famous for its Madrid draft-beer, but it also has a very delicious Spanish omelet “tortilla de patatas”. It is a 10 minute bus ride by public transportation and has been operating since the early 80´s, highly recommended.
La Dolores (Plaza de Jesús, 4) This tavern dates back to the 1920´s with its beautiful decorative tiled walls. It can use up from eight to ten beer barrels a day! It is quaint and you have to squeeze your way in the bar, worth checking out.

The beers here are always serived double-size, hence the name “El Double”,  the Double.
