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.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Pours yellow and watery with little head. Smells like it comes in a green bottle, and indeed it does. Flavor is bland and comperable to most other asian lagers I have tasted. Overall, I canít really justify drinking it unless Iím out at a Chinese restaurant eating some spicy Szechuan quisine.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2004
Aroma is hoppy, slightly malty, skunky and something weird (which should be the rice). Clear, golden coloured with a fast diminishing head. Taste is better than smell. Initially sparkling beer, becomes more bitter. hoppy, (too) sweet and a little floral. Fresh palate, slightly dry. At least it tastes better than I expected.

Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with this one, except that it is made in China. (Hey, arenít they communist? What are they doing making beer? What is the relationship between those two things? I dunno.) Anyway, doní t buy this at a restaurant as it is tooooo pricey for what you get.

This could just be because I had it with a good chinese meal but I quite enjoyed this beer. Bit pricey though.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Pale yellowy appearance, slightly hazed, moderate head formation. Malty, grainy, lightly hopped aroma. Sweet malt intro, slightly coarse and grainy. Dry in the finish with a mild bitterness. Fairly simple, acceptable in a Chinese restaurant.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2004
Sweet kinda maltesqe nose, yellow with minimum head. Fairly livly in the mouth, sweet but prehaps a bit too much. Finnished slighly grainy and dry. No real defining charatoristics. It wasnt out right bad but it definitly wasnt good. Prehaps "smuh" is the word Im looking for.

whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 Smells vaguely floral and sweet. Pours a light golden with no head to speak of. Beer is a bit thicker than i expected, and is actually a bit sweet and decently balanced. Finish is watery. No real adjunct flavors, at least. Easy to drink and very very mild. Iíve had worse, and i could imagine sort of enjoying it in China.
