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.

I really don't like this stuff. Reminds me of a heavily rice-based bad pilsner. Very thin, bitter and acidic, too biting.

TipsyMcStager (1133) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
Not much on the aroma side, slightly fruity. Typical pilsener appearance, pouring light yellow with high carbonation. Has an unusual buttery palate that was not unpleasant. Better than I expected but lacks the crisp finish of a high quality pilsener.

ferox (84) - Newcastle, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2003 Very pale appearance. Very different flavour, quite crisp. Head is unremarkable. Still, better than most macro-brews.

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2003
Thin aroma not much to comment on, got a slight waft on malt. Hoppy taste with hints of peach. This is a very thin beer with vitually no after taste. Its a bit like a weak IPA.

PorterPounder (5202) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2006 Rerate 10/25/04 Just nothing to really get excited about with this one - just an ordinary Asian lager; thin dry, slightly bland. Slight hop presence. Original 2.8 Not a bad way to kill 10 minutes while waiting for my Chinese take out. Olive oil-like aroma, unusual, but not unpleasant. Little to no head - but what is there has a lot of lacing. Very dry flavor - leaves you thirsty almost! Quite a bite to it. Stays strong throughout.

007lund (92) - Ann Arbor, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Aroma reminds me of rice,has little head, but is very smooth. Has a short, fruity finish. Not bad, not great.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2003
Yellow, no head, sweet skunky nose, bland. Maybe spicy Chinese mustard would go well with this, but so does water.

SchlossyMcSaus (75) - San Marcos, California, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Little head, pilsener odor. Flavors to match, dry finish. Nothing special, but not horrible either.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2003
What did I just run over. This takes the cake when it comes to skunky smell. Wow. Head was small and flavour was stinky and rather bland. Quite fizzy with an unpleasant finish. With all the people in China, there must be better beers. Bring them and I will sip away.

A surprising beer - I didn't expect much from China, but came away pleasantly surprised. I won't eat chinese food without a stubby now and find it's crisp, lightness a perfect partner for it
