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.....

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.

Green 330mL bottle, clear faint yellow. Skunk aroma. Typical. Crisp refreshing rice flavor. Finish with a light floral. I would definitely drink this again. It’ll do in a pinch.

Interesting find here, thanks to JRedmond. Classified as a regular pale lager, unlike Tsingtao which is a "premium" lager. Because the calorie content is listed in the description, im guessing thats its selling point and its the equevelent of a Light beer. To be honest this was pretty solid. Given the chance, I would rather drink this. Not a whole lot going on, but its very smooth and refreshing.

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.

Can’t say I know where to get it, because their distributor was a sponsor of a trivia bowl I was in, put on by the Asian American Journalists Association. At least I can say a light lager does indeed go well with spicy Asian food. Pours a decent lager yellow color. An okay beer at first seems like there are malts in the front. Taste is on the sugary side, but still close to style. At least it cools me after some chili chicken and bao rolls.

Tsingtao Draft 11° 4.5%-500ml can-this was widely available throughout Hong Kong, so I will figure this is the Draft that’s been rated by others already. I also had Draft 10° in Xian, so I will list that as a new beer. pours a thick, foamy white head that reduces to minimal. Bright yellow color with effervescence. Aroma is grain. Taste is grain, somewhat malty. OK, standard for the region. Dated 2/13.

Pours and looks a lot like Tsingtao but this version is much smoother and crisper.

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.
