Tsingtao Beer has a pleasant aroma and a well-balanced taste. It has high-malty flavor and well-hopped character. Tsingtao is produced with spring water from Laoshan, a mountain area famous throughout China for the purity of its water. The domestically-grown hops used to brew Tsingtao are of such high quality that they are also exported to European breweries. Tsingtao also uses the finest yeast and barley imported from Australia and Canada in its brewing process.

NOTE: Under this entry, rate ONLY exported Tsingtao that roughly matches the ABV and local Tsingtao that matches it completely. If it differs in any way and doesn’t match the other entries under the brewer, please send in a bug report with the alcohol percentage, degrees plato (important!), the GTIN and preferably a link to a picture of both the front and the back label so that we can set up an entry.

It is not fair to abuse this beer wholesale: we do not expect good beers from China. Yet we must be fair and honest, for the sake of good beers. Perhaps the ugliest pale dead-grass milky straw pour ever. Aroma slightly offensive raccoon musk. Flavor of raccoon meat, undercooked and left in the sun. Mouthfeel is meay and overcarbonated, with greasy toothvarnish. However, this beer did not kill me, and if I had been eating powerfuly spiced or flavored foods, would not have been too averse to its light nothingness.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 this is pretty expensive for a beer this crappy, in the us anyway. it’s sad to think that this is china’s most famous beer.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Only beer availible in a chinese resturant. a good thirst quencher, smooth. Closer to something brewed in North America, then China. An ok lager

To my tastebuds, this is a slightly more flavorful, hopsier Budweiser. The novelty of drinking a Chinese beer wore off pretty quick.

I dunno who classified this as a premium lager because it certainly isn’t premium. There are a lot worse beers out there, it was kind of light and refreshing without any huge flavour. A bit on the dull side and not much head. It isn’t going to knock your socks off, but its probably a lot better than most Chinese beers.

Dorqui (2119) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 20, 2005
Much compact foam and creamy one; optimal persistence. Discreet scent but without pretensions, to read notes of malt and grass. Much limpid and diamond, persistent bubbly. Fresh and light taste. Balanced with a determined bitter. Unexpected.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2011 This was the first and last time I will try this beer. Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a straw yellow color with a small soapy white head. The aroma was sour and skunky. The flavor was sour malt, skunk, and a bit corny. The mouthfeel was surprisingly thick which was the only redeeming quality I could find. Drain pour. ANY BREWER WHO CONSENTS TO PUTTING THE BEER IN A GREEN BOTTLE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER BREWING AGAIN!!!!!!!�

A lager like any other for the most part. Light tasting, only with a touch of bitterness at the finish.

Darkover (1522) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of bread, toast and skunk. Flavor is sweet with a little tangy bitterness.

Although it is slightly bitter, and I like bitter, this is a fairly watery brew with little to recommed it. It would be inoffensive with dinner in a chinese restaurant.
