It tastes like a good, non-skunky Henieken. Which dispite what many on here say, I think is pretty tasty. Definitly has a little drier of a taste/mouthfeel, but that is expected from a beer coming from Asia I think.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden colored pour. Had a malty, grassy aroma to it. Had a hoppy, sweet carbonated finish to it. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale gold; heavy pearling to huge, frothy, just-yellowish tinted head. Very malty & grainy nose, faint peppery and grassy. Dull grainy taste, with a markedly spring water flavour. Ends gluey and chaff-like. Watery, spring water quality and inexistant palate. Uninteresting macro-lager. Certainly nowhere "well-hopped". Sheesh!

Very pale yellow body, typical of a mass-market beer. Sweet malts and hops in the aroma. Heavy wheat accents in the body. Tea like ending.

Very pale and not particularly sweet. Quite watery but with som hoppiness to the aftertaste. Great for curries, but not much else

Very faint lemongrass and sourmash aromas... light gold into the glass, with a quickly dissipating fizziness. It’s definitely sweet, in a powdered sugar sort of way. Too bad the hops are "of such high quality that they are also exported to European breweries" (see description), because those breweries must make better use of them than Tsingtao does. There is virtually no hop character to this. It seems a tad overcarbonated, but quenches the thirst well enough, I guess. Maybe one positive is that the dry confectioner’s finish isn’t as cloying as I thought it would be, and it doesn’t hang around forever.
