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.

Pours a clear bright yellow with a very thin white head. Ricey aroma with some skunk. Nasty skunky, rice flavor with a hint of hops and a lot of water. Very boring, very bad.

Trev (2011) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2005
From the bottle: Pours a clear light gold with a fizzy white head that’s gone soon after pouring. Intense grainy citrus aroma at first. Then some subdued hop and slightly chemical scents come out. Flavour is rather light. High carbonation. A family friend suffers from Celiacs Disease (problems with Gluten) and drinks this beer because of the higher proportion of rice to barley.

Bought this in it’s can form. The beer pours a nice gold color, nice amount of carbonation. The beer smells malty, the taste is bready with a good malt sweetness to it and finishes with a weak hop bite. This is a good pilsner style beer and I drink this regularly, it pairs very well with chinese food.

Very neutral blond beer. Golden colour with a fast decreasing head. The taste is smooth with floral aromas, light body but it is quite sparkling. I’d never drink it on its own, but next to chicken tandoori or duck it’s pretty good!

gatorbeer (148) - Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2005 Solid beer. Pleasant. easy to drink. well-balanced. A good beer to drink with a meal. Not neccesaily to enjoy by itself.

Not bad, but not all that good. Try it if in China...then order a coke. Better yet, try Great Wall wine instead...

Not a bad beer, just not a very good one. If you need something to wash the General Tso’s down and nothing else is at hand, reach for this.

DrunkenCumquat (86) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2005
Bottled. Not altogether unpleasant, though pretty plain and a bit artifical tasting. What the hell is premium about this lager? Has a distinctly sour, chemical aftertaste that I suspect comes from the rice added during brewing.

Keeper (252) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 28, 2005
I Thought that it was much worse. This beer is much light one, from the light body, nearly deprives of stuttura. Drinkable

NosirIwont (2140) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle. 4,5%. Pours pale yellow with a short lasting white head. Aroma is citrusy hoppy. Flavour is equally citrusy hoppy with an occasional note of baking yeast - not very nice.
