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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Grainier, coarse alcohol flavor. Harsh. Just water and alcohol in the flavor profile. Rough stuff.

Skunky slightly malty aroma with a little malt flavor and not much else. Not very good really

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

At AIBA 2003. Apparently their version of a light beeraccording to the rep. at the awards. Very skunky and thin. Weak inoffensive taste in this internationally intended beer

Can. I picked this up in Hong Kong. Old school can with a pull off top. Nice white head. A musty aroma. The flavor is dull but not painful, slightly sweet.
