Well, it is not as bad as I feared. Bottle pours clear yellow with almost no head. Musty metallic like scent. Taste is lightly sweet with a dry cornish? finish.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2010
Shared with svoger and beerbiker at my bicycle weekend debut. Brought home from China by big daddy. Pale yellow, small white head. Almost no aroma, unlycky undertaste of corn and cardboard with a sweet almost cloying flavor.

luttonm (2138) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 7, 2010
Liter bottle from asian market in Seattle. Palest pour on a beer I’ve ever seen, minimal white head, looks like pale ginger ale. Nose is whiff of vinegar and grain/corn. Taste has some honey-like sweetness but otherwise fizzy corny malting. Sweetness is nice, works to cut spicy asian food, but pretty terrible otherwise. Serves its purpose.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2010
Yellow colored with vanishing white head. Sweet and grainy aroma with some grassy-lemony note, some cardboard also comes up. Thin to medium bodied. More cardboard in start of flavor, lemon and sweetness last in aftertaste.

Really good and better than the other Tsingtao. Another vacation brew that I had at Disney World. It was light and with a good finish. Very refreshing, though it was 90 & humid.....

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Multiple 12oz bottles at Lao Shanghi - China Town Chicago. Pours a clear lighter yellow gold with small white fizzy head. Flavor is dry and grassy with a slight sweetness. Very crisp and drinkable, clean but definitely doesn’t hide its faults.
