Bottle. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is skunky even from several feet away. Taste is toe cheese and sweet, sweet skunk.

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.

Glad I didn’t both with a full bottle of this, just had a taste from a plastic cup at the grocery store. Nothing too offensive but nothing worth revisiting, either.

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.

Didn’t expect to get blown away here haha. Violently skunked nose. One of the worst I’ve smelled. Like holy crap, this is a dead skunk on the side of the road bad. I’ve had my fair share of skunked lagers lately, nothing comes close to the level of offensiveness displayed here. Clear golden, large head, good lacing and retention. Flavor isn’t much better, (holy crap as I’m typing this after refilling the glass I can smell it from here...) but at least I can somehow get it down. Light body with moderate to high carbonation, light sweetness, no bitterness. Surprisingly good lacing and retention, surprisingly bad everything else. I will say that the beer has probably been sitting under a well lit shelf for at least a month, but still... unreal.

bottle thanks to cavie. i can’t believe fratto didn’t rate this higher. poured clear yellow wit a soapy white head. aroma was skunk and flavor was nothing at all. light body with low carbonation. maybe my worst beer to date.

malrubius (2320) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 11, 2007
12 ounce bottle in generic goblet. Golden yellow with rapidly diminishing white head. Aroma of boiled corn and soiled underwear. Flavor? None. Not worth drinking.

Slipstream (2319) - USA - SEP 25, 2007
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.

portableparty (2257) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2010
2010 Walt Disney World vacation at Epcot Nine Dragons. Bottle to glass pour is golden yellow with a white soapy head. Scents of light grass and subtle malt. Taste is crisp bubbly water with some grassy malt and finishes dry and crisp.

Reid (2178) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2006
First time seeing this one ,bought at Capitol Market, Salem,Oregon. Very nice , simple attractive labelling. Very pale yellow beer, with a large frothy, semi-thick pure white head. Ow this is badly skunked..very nasty aroma, some grassy hops underneath..but the skunk is bad. Flavour? what flavour?..the skunk shows through but not nearly as bad as the nose, everything else is essentially non-existant..a smattering of weak grasslike hops..thin malt. average mouthfeel for style..least it is not nasty Overall not a good beer, not as good as the regular Tsingtao.
