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.

Bloody awful. It had a skunky scent and taste to it. Particles floating in my bottle. I didn’t even finish the bottle and poured it down the sink...

bottle - There’s nothing impressive here. It’s a bit sweet, lacking in hops, and it’s basically yet another pale, fizzy, yellow beer. In my opinion it’s better than a bud, but that’s not saying a whole lot. Have it with your Chinese food occasionally and otherwise don’t bother.

dj (565) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Bottle, 330ml. A pale yellow colour with a medium-sized head. A musty, citric aroma. Taste of hops with some sweetness and a hint of rice. A citric finish. Moderate carbonation. A perfectly acceptable, refreshing lager.

Pours clear yellow with almost no head.. Very skunky aroma and taste. Just not a very good beer.

Pale gold in color. Aroma is the skunkiest ive ever smelled. It actually filled the room. Average malty body. Less than average hops.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle - more malty aroma than expected. Maybe just a touch of skunk, but barely noticeable. Very pale yellow body with a thinnish white head that is quickly gone. Very BMC-ish appearance. Mild flavor, but there is some flavor there. Much like an Imperial BMC. Inoffensive. Decent.

Bottle. My alternate preferred brew for when we go out for Asian cuisine (I go for Kirin first). As with the Kirin, not a great beer, but nothing horribly bad either. This is an average beer that goes well with dinner.

Why do people ship beer long distances in green bottles? Not the world’s wirst light pils style lager. Has some qualities too it. Is better than a Tiger, imho.

A Mes rate: From a Chinese Restaurant in Crouch End. Yes. I kid you not. Much better than expected. Too much carb. Cereal chunkyness about it. Clearly thats the wrong word. There is nothing chunky about this. Refreshing and drinkable. Will probably only ever drink this again if it is free and there is nothing else...

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2006
Bottle. - Light golden colour. Faint malty nose. Crisp, pretty light taste. - This beer is obviously not a "lifechanger", but sertainly not the worst one i have tried, plus the fact that it does go well spicy chinese food, ads up in the end..
