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.

You’re in Chinatown in London and Tsingtao is absent on your personal ratebeer list, what do you do...? That’s right, you drink this crappy lager! Not even that bad btw, nice alternative after all these bitters.

Pours pale yellow with a thick foamy head that diminishes fairly rapidly. Sweet corn or rice notes to the nose with mild hoppiness. Flavor is sweet rice and mild maltiness. Finishes weak and little aftertaste. Not terrible for a premium lager but I won’t buy again.

Nothing interesting here except very nice hoppiness. It was a pleasant surprise: for this hoppiness I could forgive its blandness and lack of character.

Ok, so I poured this beer and put it down about 2 feet away from me so I could start typing, and I could smell skunk all throughout the room. Wow, could you have any less color. Bla, this beer taste about as bad as it smells/looks. I will never intentionally drink this beer again!

Not a beer I would seek out, but not bad with a good pork with black bean sauce. Better than their Red Dragon beer.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Poured a golden color with a medium white head and some light lacing. Buttery diactyl, and sweet corn aroma. Taste was that of sweet malts, possibly some corn as well, and finishing very lightly hoppy.

Crisp and refreshing. Skunky green aroma in a skunky green bottle. Decent hoppy aftertaste. Not bad at all.

My God this beer smells bad! However, I can live with the taste as long as I don’t enhale. Taste is reminicent of Alexander Keith’s, not exactly a glowing indorsement to some people but I like it. Not a beer I’d rush out to buy, but it reminds me of my favorite Chinese dive in Toronto...then again the last time there I got food poisoning.

330ml green bottle from Safeway. Poured a clear amber nicely carbonated with white qd head. Fruity rice aroma with hops note. Nicely balanced crisp light lager flavour. No chemical or metallic flavours& no skunk despite the green bottle. Very long bitter finish. Nice& refreshing.

Not a fan of most lagers...pours as expected...thin white head, nice and yellow :/ Skunky aroma with a hit of hops...MILDLY refreshing...it does go quite well with General Tsao’s chicken though...
