COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 doesnít 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.

(bottle) Clear yellow/straw colour with a medium frothy white head. Weak malty aroma, slightly skunky. Sweetish flavour, medium body, somewhat crispy mouthfeel. Starts a bit sweetmalty turning into a low and short hoppy, slightly perfumed finish. This one is not that bad and I can imagine to have it with tasty/spicy (southern) chinese food, but I would prefer a sweet Riesling wine with a well-balanced sweetness-acidity proportion from Germany or AustriaÖ.and believe me or not: my best friend I had in the Kindergarten near Frankfurt/Main (greetings to Udo Krick !) is one of the grandsons of the founder of the brewery during Germanys former colonial times.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - JUN 6, 2005
Bottle. Smells slightly sour and tastes the same. Light hoppy presence (slight bitterness) but nothing to rave about. Quite watery with little aftertaste. I wasnít expecting much, but itís tastier then some of the cheap domestics Iíve had. I wanted to try a chinese beer and I guess Iíll be looking for something different to try.

Out of a can with an old fashioned pull off ring pull...it almost explodes when opened. As far as Asian beers are concerned, run of the mill

I was gonna wait ti I went to a Chinese restaurant, but it was on sale. As far as generic country lagers go, this is definitely at or near the top of my list. Good slightly warm too, great for what it is.

An ok beer from China. I think this will be my first beer from that part of the world. Similar to Japanese beers I guess. I canít tell the beers apart. Skunky smell, but taste is fine.

Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
Very pale yellow with big dissapearing offwhite head. Aroma is a bit weak with some sweetness and a bitter hint. Taste is sweet with sweet aftertaste and only a notes of bitterness.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow with hardly any head. This beer has aromas of skunk, tin cans and flowers, and an insipidly bland rice cracker taste. Okay with spicy Chinese food, but thatís about it.

12 oz bottleó1st 6 pack I got was an outdated batch, which I didnít notice till I was having the 1st beer from it and not enjoying it too much. The first one fit a number of descriptions Iíve read on this beer, like-skunky, not much different than the US macros, shipping conditions that the beer was subjected to, etc.. The store was kind enough to do a swap for a different 6 pack with a more recent bottling date. So, thatís the 6 pack I will rate as there was a big difference between the 2. Pours a mild yellow, pale golden color, white head that is quite high, reduced to about 1/2 ď and held for much of that beers existence. Aroma is light and citrusy, lime possibly? Along with a sweetness, possibly corn. Carbonation and taste are good, an enjoyable beer.

Surprise, I had it at a chinese all-you-can-eatery. Pours light yellow amber, small head, and a slight aroma. Very light taste, alittle better than Heiney. Youíd think a country that came up with Kung Pao would have a beer with a bit more pow.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Pours light yellow with a pretty large white head that settles to about 1/4 inch and laces the glass on the way down. The aroma is kind of skunky. Maybe a little malt and corn in there but the aroma is really not that strong on this one. Tastes of sweet corn and maybe some rice come through in this one. It has a somewhat sweet aftertaste that lingers some. On the palate it is very carbonated yet somewhat watery and thin. Reminded me very much of the standard American brews like budweiser. Nothing worth picking up again by any means.
