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.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle - more malty aroma than expected. Maybe just a touch of skunk, but barely noticeable. Very pale yellow body with a thinnish white head that is quickly gone. Very BMC-ish appearance. Mild flavor, but there is some flavor there. Much like an Imperial BMC. Inoffensive. Decent.

beerbill (3599) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle. My alternate preferred brew for when we go out for Asian cuisine (I go for Kirin first). As with the Kirin, not a great beer, but nothing horribly bad either. This is an average beer that goes well with dinner.

Why do people ship beer long distances in green bottles? Not the world’s wirst light pils style lager. Has some qualities too it. Is better than a Tiger, imho.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2006
A Mes rate: From a Chinese Restaurant in Crouch End. Yes. I kid you not. Much better than expected. Too much carb. Cereal chunkyness about it. Clearly thats the wrong word. There is nothing chunky about this. Refreshing and drinkable. Will probably only ever drink this again if it is free and there is nothing else...

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2006
Bottle. - Light golden colour. Faint malty nose. Crisp, pretty light taste. - This beer is obviously not a "lifechanger", but sertainly not the worst one i have tried, plus the fact that it does go well spicy chinese food, ads up in the end..

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Extremely drinkable and refreshing with all foods. Perfect for drinking more than one while indulging in a chinese food feast. I really like this beer and often order it when choosing between it and many standard american brews.

GRM (3581) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2006
Green bottle, 355 ml; eye: pale yellow, not much head nor effervescence; nose: malt, rice; mouth: I feel under attack by the malt, even the taste of rice is present, sparkly, relatively thin, malt as a finale, unbalanced; overall: not too often

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle, accompanied by sichuan, natch. The malt is a tad sweet in this, not a bad beer. and it matches well with the cuisine.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle. Light honey body with no head. Nose-sweet adjuncty skunk. Taste-mildly sweet, not a big adjunct taste, no skunk. This beer is not surprising in what it has, it is surprising in what it is missing-no burnt plastic, corn, rice, skunk, or bitter taste. Very mild with just the right amount of sweetness. SURPRISINGLY good!
