2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a small, white head.
Smell: Fresh, clean rice aroma with a waft of water-soaked grasses.
Taste: Not much to go on here, folks. Some puffed rice, some clean water, a medium sweetness, and a very slight grassy hop character. Clean, sudden finish. Just like life, it’s over before you know it.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Again, there’s not alot going on here. It’s okay, perhaps, if you’re looking for something tremendously light, but then the optimal choice would be: water.

The aroma is full of adjuncts and rather malty with a grassy hop. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is water like with rice and grass. The palate is watery. Better than the regular with no funk but nothing great.

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a clear, pale golden color; thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Light aroma, with lots of skunkiness and light sugar; not terribly offensive, but not good. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: candy sugar, light skunkiness following through from the aroma; reasonably drinkable and crisp, but kind of grainy and stale overall. Not exceptional. Medium finish: sugars, grainy malts, and a touch of mineral bitterness.
