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.

Not one of the best beers in the world, but it is the #1 branded export from China. Typical premium lager with a little more flavor than it’s domestic counterparts.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 21 Mar 2006 - Very light sweet and hop aroma. Clear yellow colour, lowish head and lacing. Sweet-sweet and low hop flavour. Hoppy bitter finish. Too damn sweet to balance, to rate it higher.

Golden body. Nose is classic lager yeast and sweet corn notes. Flavour is expected, slightly sweet with some corn notes. Mouth clears fast, great alternative to brown ales for food pairing. [ching dao, if you are wondering]

Kind of an extra sour, nastier version of Becks regular. Becks is just ok for me, so this is definitely subpar for me.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 23, 2006
Yellow with litle head. Minimum malt flavour and a crisp, clean, practically non-existant flavour. It serves a purpose and it does work with spicy foods...

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Very little head. Rich straw color. Mild fruit aroma. Crisp refreshing taste. Smooth malt with a little corn. Zippy hop finish. Good drinking beer for a hot day. Cheers!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, skunk, and citrus. Flavor is macro-like thin, corn, grain, and weak.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
A deep golden yellow beer with a light effevescence. The nose is light and hoppy, with a sweet malt. The taste is weak, with hints of hop and wheat over a light malty sweetness. The finish is weak and slightly sweet. (Bottle)

My very first Chinese beer and I’m very surprised how mild tasty it is with very little after taste. It reminds me of an American brewed beer

(03.28.06) 12 oz green bottle purchased from Tomokazu restaurant, San Francisco International Airport, CA and labeled as “Tsingtao Export.” Poured golden yellow with small white head. Frizzy carbonation. Sweet malt in the nose. Light bodied pils-style Chinese lager that starts with light malt sweetness and corn/nutty flavors. Finishes dry and clean with light malt fade. No discernable hop presence. This is a refreshing crisp lager that went well with salmon teriyaki. Relatively speaking, this lager is more flavorful than Bud but not malty rich and flavorful as Czechvar.
