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.

(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.

What I really liike about this beer is that it has distinct taste to it. Very malty beer has no bitter hoppy aftertaste to it, has a very heineken quality to it. Tastes really good with Chinese food.

KUEric (946) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2006
It tastes like a good, non-skunky Henieken. Which dispite what many on here say, I think is pretty tasty. Definitly has a little drier of a taste/mouthfeel, but that is expected from a beer coming from Asia I think.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Light golden colored pour. Had a malty, grassy aroma to it. Had a hoppy, sweet carbonated finish to it. Not bad.
