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.

Golden colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with a cereal note and a light sweetness. Watery taste with some malts and a faint bitterness in the finish.

Your basic light with some malt and hops to it but nothing else. Decent on a hot summer day with some sweet and sour chicken.

Bottle. Well iím sitting there at my table at the chinese restaurant having already decided I was only going to have water with dinner when I saw the little Tsingtao ad placed at my table. I figured what the heck, Iíll give it a try. I was not expecting much and it pretty much delivered. Very bland in color, aroma, and flavor. Nothing to write home about, but I can see myself ordering another one with my chow mein and egg rolls next time as well.

rederic (3222) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2005
Very pale yellow hue, shy foamy head, skunky smell at the opening of the bottle, pale malt, mild floral accent, maybe hint of vanilla in the nose, follows through on a light-medium bodied palate, with crisp pale malt, touch of soft maltiness, in very light hoppy finish.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Bottle at Chanís. And you know what they say...when in rome...Pale yellow, white head that fades. Frat house beer aroma with a cooked corn DMS note. Thin and lifeless pale malts with little hops. Distinct note of Formaldehyde. ;-)

If they donít have water, ask for this. Itís about the same thing. Itís the same color yellow as the Oregon Ducks jerseys, it has a big fizzy head, and itís so carbonated that it makes me think of the prank from Animal House where they fill the swimming pool with fizzies.

DuffMan (8198) - 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 (5272) - 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 AmerciaÖ

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)
