I visited this beer bar on three nights during a recent trip to Rome (end May/early June 2009). As we approached the place, it was a bit chaotic, as many of the customers seemed to congregate around the doorway and out on the street where thay can smoke while enjoying their beers. We pushed past the mini throng, and found a couple of bar stools on the right hand side. I then surveyed the taps, and what a great selection;
Lambrate Urtiga, Moinette blonde, Oerbier, Weihanstephaner Vitus, Cantillon Kriek, Great Divide Titan IPA, Great Divide Yeti Imperial stout, Beckbrau Zoigl, Beckbrau Beckarator, La Rulles Festival and del Borgo ReAle. Now that is some tap selection. Granted, they were not all available all of the time while I was there, but still...
The bar staff (different on each night) were knowledgeble and efficient. There was a problem with a cooler one night, and I was drinking a Cantillon Kriek that I noted was a bit warmer than I might have expected. After a minute or two, the barman came down to where I was seated, tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I wanted the beer changed explaining about the cooler problem that he had only just noted. I replied that "good beer is good beer" and I was happy to drink the kriek at the temperature. Still, it was nice that he asked.

The place itself narrows after the bar bit where there is a stairs down to the toilets. It later widens into another room at the back, but we didn't go there as we preferred to be where the action/atmosphere was (near the taps). I noted that they will sell people beer to go in a plastic glass. Another point is that they do not serve anything other than beer; no soft drinks, coffee, spirits etc. which is fine by me.

The only downside was that the toilets let the place down a bit. They could have done with an overhaul.

Not sure what all the fuss is about really. This small two roomed bar with a short connecting corridor can hold about 30 people comfortably, 10 in the front and 20 in the back.

Friendly staff, with noisey customers and a speaker system that is too loud. They were alternating between football highlights and a music channel on our visit and the sound almost defeated us. We were sat in the back by ourselves and were joined by a couple from London, we shouted at each other for a while, then gave in.

A request to have the speakers turn off or lowered was met with it’s OK in the front bar and we can't alter individual rooms.

Beer was fine but it’s not anywhere near one of the top 100 bars I've been in around the world.
