COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Only thing wrong with the aroma was the lack. In fact that is pretty much how I'd sum this whole beer up. Everything is okay but now done much, Kind of reminded me of Steinlager but with even less prominent features. Slightly more expensive than Steinlager as well. Little side note, as it gets warmer a funny little taste becomes apparent (it is a hot day) I don't recall this flavor, it is kind of a metallic touch on the tip of your tongue, I am wondering if this is because of the rice that the label mentions? It is something odd anyhow.

Didn't seem hoppy enough to be a pils but it did have more flavor than I expected. No head. Aroma is minimal, grassy. Not bad with the Chinese food.

bottled: ive had this several times with my chinese food or sushi or even thai. good clean beer if your drinking spicy stuff...my friend call this the 'happy' beer, go figure. if you drink too many of them your 'happy'. this one has that kinda skunk smell to it always?? nothing to say about the look , its typical. however, the taste is a bit more sweet here then in the other asian style pilseners. and of course there is some adjunct taste going on...always a good guess would be rice. ya di ya da ya da.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2004
Pale golden colour with fairly thin white head. Strong scent of fruit, flowers, and honey over a nice light malt. Floral taste with a crisp finish. Pretty good with anything spicy.

BigSkyman007 (202) - USA - JAN 30, 2004
When I opened the bottle, got a skunky aroma, but after pouring into glass, it improved. Pale yellow and clear, mild maltiness with mild hop flavoring. A little skunkiness. So-so beer, I've had worse, but I've had better.

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
Light gold with minimal head. Lots of carbonation. Finishes clean and hoppy. It's nothing special.

Light golden, medium head, no lace. Mild aroma with some cookie like crisp malt. Light to medium body. Moderate bitter, a bit sweet, notes of crisp cookie-like malt. More bitter, sweeter finish.

Thin beer with off flavors. Not too appealing. This beer has a long way to go to be a drinkable beer.
