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.

A nice green bottle skunk aroma. Appearance is pee-pee yellow. Oh I dread this one.....A funny hay and adjunct flavor. Skunk-o-rama. Piss poor beer even for a lager. I'd rather have an American Standard in a can. This sucks!

Was something nice to try since it was a chinese beer. However it reminded me of a light lager. Nothing spectacular.

this yellow beer had minimal head atop and smelled like sweet sushi rice...bland but unoffensive flavors...mildy sweet...actually, not really all that bad for what it is..

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Had this one with Japanese food. Fairly good aroma, half decent taste. Slightly hoppy and citrusy at the finish. I wouldn't buy it again, but not too bad.

I guess i had a fresh bottle has the nose was faint malt, no skunk around here. The taste says adjunct but the bitterness saves this beer, as it makes it crisp. Very light and bland body.

I see that this beer doesn't get good ratings, but I liked it. Nice mellow beer, light and drinkable. Very impressed with it. Not what I expected from China.

rajendra82 (947) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Very pale straw colored body with a frothy white short lived head fed by fake carbonation. Clean grainy malt smell with notes of grassy hops. Cloyingly sweet diluted corn syrup like taste is pretty bad. A touch of hops in the aftertaste make this a bit more drinkable than it would otherwise be. On par with mass produced beers from the big three, and only worth sampling as a novelty. My Chinese friend at work handed this to me as a free sample. I would not buy it, and I’ll have to try to get him to sample some of the better pale lagers so that he wouldn’t either.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2004
A standard bud like beer. Golden colored, skunky in the nose, light bodied, watery on the palate, very mild malt and hop flavors that seem to clash. It'll do, when it's your only choice in a chinese restaurant.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 June, 2002 I have heard that this beer is very variable, but can be quite spicy and refreshing. Mine was obviously of the poor variety - soapy-sweet selotape. [1.4]
March, 2004 Pale yellow. Clean & crisp. Huge cow pat malt aroma. Surprisingly attractive. Some light bitterness. Not much happening, but an acceptable and refreshing drink. [2.2]
April, 2007 On tap at the Noodle House in Gillingham. Crisp and drinkable. Most of the character appears to come from the carbonation, and the main element of this beer is that it is inoffensive. [2.0]
