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.

Nothing special here.Decent golden color,small head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was maybe a light malt with a bit of a sweet side and a hint of hops.The flavor was decent light malty side some mild bitterness and mild hop showing.Over all it finished up fairly clean with a thin feel.Not bad but definately could be better.

Has an acidic somewhat metallic taste. While it has a somewhat pleasant aroma it has only a light malty taste and a cheap soapy hops. The only things this beer is good with is strong food because it will compete with the flavor maybe even cover up a bad food taste.

Only with Chinese food please, though still more distinctive than any American macro. Sweet, with unique, if not entirely pleasant, metallic flavor. Seriously, you would never drink this outside of your local Chinse restaurant.

Sweet flavour. Flavor similar to macro-brewed lager, with more Palate. Dryish aftertaste. Brilliant gold pour with clear white boutiful head.

TaktikMTL (6289) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2004
Bouteille verte de 355 ml. Arôme: Très légèrement "skunké". Odeur de houblon assez présente. Apparence: Couleur paille. Petit col qui disparaît vite. Faible carbonisation. Saveur: Très léger goût de moufette. Goût de houblon prononcé. Palette: Légère amertume agréable en bouche. (Rating #19)

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2004
Poured lemon colour with a short white head. Aroma of boiled veges. Typical sweet corn adjunct flavour. Thin watery feel. Quite refreshing, be fine in the heat, but not my cup of tea i’m afraid.

A descent beer. Its got some hops which certainly helps out a flavor. Would most definitly take this over any of the cheaper american macros. Very refreshing and wouldnt complain drinkin this when offered.

Surprisingly, I did not think that this Chinese beer was as negative as the reviews indicate. The flavor was not all that bitter, providing a smooth and crisp tasting lager. Lacking any definitive beer taste though, relatively poor in that respect. For a light tasting option though, not that bad.
