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.

White head that disappear fast, pale yellow body, not a bad taste but a little watery. A good beer to quench thirst and with a hot meal, but standalone it is not exceptional.

From a botte into a small lager glass: Straw-colored with a pretty "meringue" head. Some malt presence in the aroma, otherwise grainy. Very smooth and not excessively carbonated. No tastes really stand out (good or bad). I’d better try another to check consistency. Yup, second one looks, smells and tastes just like the first one did--good, but hardly exciting beer.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Beer pours pale golden, lots of carbonation and a well retained egg white head. Aroma is grassy and skunky with a faint hop note in the background. Flavor is sweet and bland and contains a hint of hop spiciness in the finish. Blah.

Aroma? Does it really have one? My nose didn’t get much off of it. The appearance is a pale yellow. Flavor is somewhat sweet, but generally bland. The palate is inoffensive. Not a great beer.

I had this at a Chinese restaurant with Chinese seafood. It was okay and went well with the food, but I didn’t think it was all that smooth.

Dark Yeollow --- corny, wheaty aroma --- decent carbonations --- corn with some malt taste --- went well with the Chinese buffet -

Bright tasting and gummy. Nice golden color for a lager. Can’t specify the metamorphizing taste, but it’s nice. Hops too. One from the ol’ PRC supplies the list, and I can’t say its a bad beer.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear yellow color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a dusty touch . This beer smells to malty.

A nice golden coloring with strong carbonation, this offers a very mild malty aroma. It’s a clean, crisp drink that goes good with any meal.

Actually better than I had hoped for. Poured pale yellow color with white fizzy head, typical beer/wheat aroma. Some kind of rice/corn flavor that balances well with the maltiness. Paired perfectly with a spicy dish of kung pao chicken
