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.

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Pale yellow, quickly deminishing head, no lace. No aroma. Neutral palate. "Refreshing" only in a macro-brewed pale lager sense. Absolutely nothing unique here.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a small bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of weak malt and hops with bad case of skunk in the back. Taste is pretty inoffensive apart from the bad case of skunkyness. You have to wondered why they import all those crappy lager into North Amercia…

Marko (4303) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Old review (German Export 5% version):
Ooh, my first Chinese beer. Pours a medium sized and thick white head. Surprise, surprise, it was pale and yellow. Bad malt nose, comparable to a n/a nose. Oh, and my Tsingtao (German export, but found in the Scout Club Irish Pub in Samobor) had 5% alc.. The taste was cardboardy, but the lemon dominated. Why on earth is this imported here ? (3/2/4/1/8)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2005
pours goldenish in color with a small white head, smell is mostly of malts, a tiny bit of skukiness in the aroma, taste was slightly sweet with a slight bitter finish, ok body a little watery, not a bad beer, it drinkable .

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Out of a bottle, it’s light, a little cloudy, quickly dispersing head. Aromas of grains, similar to American macro brews. The taste is nothing to write home about. Watery, but not bad. Goes very well (as it should) with Asian cuisine.

mnurda (1193) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Very pleasing to the palate especiialy when paired with Chinese food (that is being consumed in huge quantities). Very light in color. Much subtler than the Pale Ales that I am used to.

(bottle) Poured golden yellow. Yeast and hops apparent. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this beer.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 It’s the most common beer in chinese restaurants here in Greece. If well chilled then it’s ok.

Tmoney99 (11915) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Bottle 12oz. Clear light amber with small white head. Small aroma. Light body with small texture. Light flavor with little to no finish. Clearly a below average lager.

My wife said the aroma wafts of skunk piss and malt, whatever that means. Nice golden color, decent pils pour. Unlike some of the other comments I found this to be an all over satisfying brew on par with a Heiniken or a Becks, but with a lighter swallow. Overall I would pick this up again.
