Pallid gold. Appley, sulphury aroma. Delicate spice and maybe some pineapple on the palate. Watery finish. Mild malt.

Green Can:
Super pale golden coloured body with no head at all on top of this one. Aroma of stale malt, a very light amount of hops and an odd presence of rice. Light-bodied; Not a good taste at all, and showing more of the blandness than anything else. Aftertaste has more of the same, the palate is still dry and bitter after a sip of this one. I sampled this 33 cL can purchased from Taste (outside the Ngong Ping 360 cable car station) in Hong Kong, China, brought back to the United States on 30-July-2006.

I love Tsingtao beer, and this Hui Quan version is a great beer. Clean, pale yellow colour, tastes watery but has an aftertaste that gives something back to you. Very easy drinking, suited with Asian food dishes.

Stefano (1972) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
Pale golden with very brief head. Aroma is metallic. Taste is grain, sweet, effervescence but very thin and the aftertaste is cheap and boring. Not an enjoyable beer.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bit of white foam on a clear golden pour. Watery. Nicely balanced, better than expected. Dishsoapy hops. A tiny bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Cheap tasting. Refreshing and one-demensional

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Grainier, coarse alcohol flavor. Harsh. Just water and alcohol in the flavor profile. Rough stuff.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Skunky slightly malty aroma with a little malt flavor and not much else. Not very good really

omhper (23731) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2004
Canned. Pale golden with very brief head. Metallic aroma. Some bready, ricey body, no bitterness. Drinkable, but not enjoyable.

Diego (79) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
A little thin in body but still gives you a rather mild imported flavor. I think it beets the green bottled Tsintao in taste. Close to a quality American beer but not near the tails of the independent American breweries. I bought this at a Japaneesee grocery store and only paid $3.99 for it sound it is a cost effective decent tasting beer and that makes a big difference.
