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.

Another beer I got on my shopping trip to swill heaven. I have seen this many times but never been willing to risk it. Pale yellow beer with a small fizzy white head. Smells faintly skunky, but that passes quickly. Taste is that of a German style lager. Think Becks, but not as good. Still, its not as bad as I was expecting. Its drinkable but not recommended.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Smells like a lager PIlsener, but with some honney features. Not bad, but not a beer that would make you crazy.

This is one of those beers i walk by all the time and maybe i should have just kept walking. Aroma has soem sort of herbal notes to it, doesnt really remind me of hops. Taste is seriously minimal with the herbs having a play in your mouth. Thin asian lager.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 26, 2005
Tasted 27/10/2005. Shared 330ml bottle at Neil Millerís October Cellar-Vate Tasting. Pale yellow-gold, white head, slightly flat (possibly a little stale). Bland aroma that says nothing but "international lager". German-style flavour - faint honey sweetness and herbal hop notes. Short and lightweight. Unoffensive and obviously well made, like most other beers of this type, but not something Iíd choose to buy if I had other options.

Bottle. Poured a very light gold with a medium white head. Skunky, sour aroma. The palate is pretty thin but itís not watery. The flavor is sour and bitter with a touch of citrus and very dry on the finish. Not as much malt character as a typical lager. It went OK with my spicy Chinese dinner

I wonder if this style of beer is easy to produce. I ask because it appears all over the world in a variety of guises, from North America, Europe, South Africa, Australasia and South Asia, all tasting very similar to one another. This oneís not bad.

Bottle. Pale look. Not as good as I expected it would have been. Bitter, and a dry finish. Probably would have been better if it had been consumed with food.
