Tsingtao Pure Draft is a smooth, crisp and light-tasting draft beer. It is brewed with domestically-grown hops, select barley, all-natural yeast and pure spring water from China’s Laoshan Mountains. Tsingtao Pure Draft is brewed with an exclusive low temperature filtration process preserving the beer’s true flavor to create an incredibly refreshing beer-drinking experience. It is the perfect accompaniment to Pan-Asian cuisine and light appetizers.

Bomber bottle with Chinese and Western lettering. Wimpy taste of wheat, yeast, rice - watery. It could be they want this to compete with dry Japanese beers, but this is inferior to those and to regular Tsingtao. More like a lite beer than a draft lager. Save it for watering your bamboo trees.

JPDIPSO (5670) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Straw color with an ultra white foamy head of bubbles. LIght toasted white bread aromas with whiffs of herb, somewhat minty. Quite sweet with a light caramel start followed by some light metallic parts and a hint of not quite ripe raspberries. Really does seem to need some food pairing. Certainly not a stand alone brew.

Bottle. A skunky aroma when opened. The taste is a bit skunky, but typical of a pale lager. I much prefer the original Tsingtao over this beer.

Very Very Very Very Very Very Very light!!! However, it did really quench the thirst after some spicy Chinese dishes and the hot, sweaty Shanghai heat

Not a bad pale lager. A bit skunky but quite light flavor. Grassy hops, not too much there.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2007
Pale golden, white head. Very fresh aroma, light pale malt and a grassy hop aroma. Fairly sweet and worty but quite clean nonetheless. Crisp finish with low bitterness. Bland and forgettable.

Pale Yellow pour from the 22 oz bottle. Just a little skunk flavor and aroma. Guess I should consider myself lucky considering the green bottle. Some lemony flavors, but not enough to actually make it good.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours pale golden w/ a meium sized, spritzy froth. Hang time is minimal and so is the residual lacing. Aroma of skunked malts. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. It’s clean and crisp w/ no offensive flavors. Good balance. The finish is bittered nicely.

A great light pilsner with a slightly sweet malty taste. Much better than regular Tsingtao. This stuff is great very cold, and gets worse as it warms. You can’t expect crafted beer or anything but a light pilsner or you will be disappointed. Very good for what it is.

no faults other than it is simply beer flavored water. very pale, some head, thin, didn’t finish it. Had it at the TsingTao pub 2365 Sichuan Beilu.
