Slight hint of hay on the nose. Pale yellow, almost lemon color. with decent carbonation. Taste was light and clean. Some slight hop flavor. Great with Chinese food. Very simple refreshing 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

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Although I have had regular Tsingtao ff and on for years, I have only just tried this Pure Draft. While pleasant and drinkable, it is a lot liighter, weaker, and less satisfying in every respect. It’s close to Coors I think. It has a small, bubbly white head that dissipates to nothing immediately. Compared to the regular, it’s more pale yellow and much more bubbly. It has a very weak, hardly discernable, grain aroma. The taste is very light grain and grass with a faintly lingering grain aftertaste after the first sip but this soon vanishes. It has no bite and after a few sips becomes increasingly watery and bland (like Coors & unlike regular Tsingtao, the taste of which holds up nicely), with the flavour almost disappearing. At least its not offensive and its drinkable and can be refreshing in the right circumstances, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again.

Ugh. Very pale golden body with a nearly non-existent head. Aroma is pure skunk that you can smell from several feet away. Weak, watery palate. Taste is only marginally better than the aroma. Semi-sweet with only a hint of grassy hops. Barely even a thirst quencher. Maybe I’ll chug one after a very spicy bowl of General Tso’s.

This was water coloured, scented, and flavored. EVER SO SLIGHTLY. However it is better than Bud Lite.

Very pale dishwater yellow color with no head. Light malt and hop flavors with a bitter 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.....

Poured from the bottle. First things first, I have an instant wariness of anything in a green bottle, which to me is a sure sign of water masquerading as a beer-like beverage. Upon opening, I was greeted by the sharp pervasive smell of skunky rice, this aroma had some legs on it too, I could smell it about five feet away. The body is not as pale as I was prepared to see, and was a light golden color, with a instantly diminishing head of white foam. Mouthfeel is very light, with carbonation being mostly for show. Flavor was tinny, but not horribly so, and was innocuous in its smoothness. Palate was grassy and slightly metallic with little aftertaste. Certainly a beer to drink quickly. Meh.
