2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow body with ongoing carbonation. Creamy small white head. Aroma of light straw with slight malt notes. Taste is again light straw with some grain. Aftertaste has a nice faint hop profile. Traces of bitterness. Watery. Faintly sourish. Forgettable. (0.33l bottle.)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another Tsingtao 8ºP available in abundance and yet again labelled differently. Strained yellow gold and headless. A litte palest grain, rice husks and dried mown grass on the nose, relatively clean otherwise. Foamy mouthfeel, very light bodied but gassy and heavy in the stomach leaving me in need of a good belch. Light grain, rather clean across the palate. Grassy, weedy and tinny late with a sourness that gives it a tang as it warms. Watery overall, but nothing too offensive. Hits the spot! (64cL, BB 04/11/12, BB 15/11/12, off-license near Chuansha, Shanghai, China)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A plae lager with a thick receeding white head. In aroma, nice fresh grains, quite surprised. In mouth, a decent euro-asian lager, with nice grain notes. 640 ml bottle at Charms Hotel Restaurant, Oct. 20 2010.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Pale golden. Rice aroma. Medium sweet, bready and nearly medium bodied. Actually seems to contain some hops, and even a vague trace of bitterness. One of the better Chinese beers I've come across.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Keg in local Chinese Restaurant. Pale Gold with delicate white head. A very pleasant light beer, particularly compared to some Eurofiz UK lagers. A reasonable amount of dryish hops and particularly refreshing.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light and unflavorful. Quite a lot of head, surprisingly. Can’t detect any hops and it isn’t bitter at all. On sale at 7-11 in Hong Kong right now; two 500ml cans for around $10 HK, which is about $1.30 US. Good deal, but definitely nothing special. Good with Chinese food and when you’re broke....

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. The head disappeared quickly. About the same but more bite on the palate than the regular Tsingtao. I found this in Hong Kong. Basically all the stores sold Tsingtao and Tsingtao Draft in cans and bottles.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, labeled as Pure Draft Beer. Label matches can pictures. Very bright yellow color with a quickly diminished white head. The color is so yellow it just does not look natural. LIght pale malt aromas couple with a dry flower/grass scent. Clean and simple aroma. Very watery from the start, with a light pale malt sweetness that is greeted by a touch of herbal bitterness. Dry finish leaving one question if there was anything really going on. I guess I could see this with some spicy chinese dish, but to watery for much else.
