(330ml can, Beijing) AROMA: light cereal/grain nose, touch of green/grass, nothing skunky, relatively fresh. APPEARANCE: light golden yellow, clear, light white head that goes away pretty quick, minimal tracing. TASTE: straightforward beer taste, touch of vanilla and cream, grain, tiny bit of roastiness. PALATE: Light, a tad oily, relatively smooth, some bitterness that goes away pretty quick. OVERALL: easy to drink, decent balance. Main problem is that it is a bit weak in flavor and in body and in hops. However, not that bad. One of the better TsingTao lagers, and as good (or better) than some of the big name mass brews.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2016 My amusement with Chinese marketing strategies with no regard to product quality has no end. The aroma here was even a bit misleading. Quite pleasant, crisp, grassy, metallic. The rest is shite. Watery, sweet, tasteless. Nothing that is too bad for a chicken marinade. And the bad taste in the mouth can always be washed down with a lovely oyster stout. This was not the NBA version - perhaps the sponsorship is over. And I am not even sure whether my bottle was coming from the Shenzhen plant. The characters in the back label are so tiny and squeezed together that one needs a fucking microscope to read them properly. [Update on August 2016: the basketball version still exists, both in 4% and in 3.3%. It’s just not NBA any more, as it is Harbin that sponsors NBA these days.]

Flasa. Priesvitna zlta farba, bez peny. Vona sladka, umela, cukrikova. V chuti ziadne telo, sladka voda, jemne cukrikove tony. Zle pivo.

[Canned] Pale yellow, very brief head. Sweetish, very thin and extremely metallic. No bitterness. Very poor even with the lowest imaginable expectations
