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.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of bread, toast and skunk. Flavor is sweet with a little tangy bitterness.

Although it is slightly bitter, and I like bitter, this is a fairly watery brew with little to recommed it. It would be inoffensive with dinner in a chinese restaurant.

frosted lager glass / surprisingly not that bad. i had it with my dinner at an asian restaurant called Aloha, in Decatur, IL. i prefer the food. there were actually some flavor, but iím not remembering what it was; otherwise, itís a bit sweet, and itís active. rice? anyway... iím guessing this would be cloying and anything that is far away from drinkable, if let to warm. drink it cold, and use it to wash down your food.

My friend bought a bottle of this at papago. Poured some in a glass for me. Well a bitter beer that maybe to me itís only purpose besides the free tee shirt is another rating.

This stuff was awful. Terrible bitter taste, no head, just kind of sat there in the glass not doing anything. After I swallowed it, it just kind of sat there in my gut waiting to be expelled. Which I did in due time.

My first ever Chinese beer. Maybe my last. It had no smell, no flavor, no mouthfeel, and a barely discernible hop bitter. If youíre ever having a party and you run out of water, just break out the Tsingtao.

This beer claims to be made with spring water from Laoshan, which is ancient chinese for "my basement bathroomís toilet tank". This only served to cleanse my palate of all taste before moving on to a real manís beer. I then crushed the bottle with the cleft of my chin and ate the shards just to toughen up my stomach more, while laughing like a pirate who has just pillaged and sunk a Spanish Galleon

Bottle: Quite surprised by this really. With typical pale gold hues and a scummy white head this looked like a standard pale lager. However, the saazy like aroma with soem enticing citrussy notes suggested otherwise. The flavour was somewhat left-field with some faint malts as a structural base upon which sweet citrussy tones were layered, turning into tropical fruit towards the end. Smooth and refreshing, the only real faults of this beer is that it isnít particularly flavourful and that after half a glass one was left with a slightly sour aftertaste. Quite reasonable.

Only beer i see here in the states from China. A watered down gold body and foam head that stays a fluff for few seconds. This is a actual pleasant beer and its pretty good or maybe because im eating Chinese take out with it. It certainly isnít anything worth buying again but at least i know its not that bad.
