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 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.

Light gold with minimal head. Lots of carbonation. Finishes clean and hoppy. It's nothing special.

Light golden, medium head, no lace. Mild aroma with some cookie like crisp malt. Light to medium body. Moderate bitter, a bit sweet, notes of crisp cookie-like malt. More bitter, sweeter finish.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Thin beer with off flavors. Not too appealing. This beer has a long way to go to be a drinkable beer.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a watered down piss-yellow with a medium amount of virgin white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a thin, soapy-looking film of sudsy head. Aroma is of straw, grass, vegetal on a cool spring day. Flavor is a watered down crappy yellow beer, straw, grass, vegetal. Not offensive, but certainly no good reason to injest anymore of it. Sampled at 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

Very pale gold colour with white medium size lasting head. Harsh rice? nose and the taste is of floral hops with a watery texture.

Pike (6) - DL, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2004 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2004 Between the time when a bottle gets capped in China to when someone buys it at a Chinese buffet in Minnesota, this beer turns into skunk water. I would like to try it fresh if ever given the chance.

I'm not sure whether I'm smelling rice or very mild hops, but there's a hint of skunk to it anyway. Carbonation seems to be the order of the day for my ratings tonight. Otherwise it's yellow with a modest layer of head. I used to like this beer from the can once. Now I know why; the green glass bottles do it no favours. This bottle has traveled to far and sat to long on a shelf in a well lit shop. Otherwise the taste is mild and watery. Would do OK with some Thai-takeaway, if the beer was fresh. Otherwise there's not much going on for it. Too sweet by far, really.

I sometimes drink this beer at my local Dim Sum pusher! It is a very light pilsener but it has some kind of interesting crispy feeling to it (almost like Champagne....). Very thin and watery with very little flavor.
