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.

This is NOT the people's beer, as it is a joint venture...but anyway, this is the finest China has to offer, having had it there. Certainly better than Yanjing, Chongqing, or any of the other state-run brews. Being that you either get those, or Budweiser (Wuhan brewery) or this, I would take this while you're there.

The people's beer...Smells a bit like skunked apple juice would, if I ever had it. A little more hops and malt than average cheap American beer. Ok all around once and a while, but not so good really. You think Mao would be proud?

pondoshuffles (141) - Fitzroy Harbour, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2003
Very crisp palate, noble hop nose, long, bitter-balanced finish. I like this beer. Its not Pilsner Urquell, but I'd take it over Heiney or Stella anyday.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Pale golden color with a sickly, soapy looking white head. The aroma and flavor were so bland that I had a hard time picking anything out. Surprisingly, I got no rice or corn in the aroma...extremely mild hops...some sweetness. The flavor was mildy sweet with an ocassional hint of hops. Watery feel...very very light. Because it was so bland I really can't say much about this beer.

Had this while visiting hong kong. Seemed like the budweiser of china. Served its purpose on those humid 43 C days spent watching the junks on the harbour.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2003
Grainy aroma. Yellow golden color, white head, few lace. Maltsweet, rahter full but grainy. Short malty finish. Although not really a very bad brew I couldn't finish it because of it's grainy fullness.

mribm (457) - Ocala, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2003
This beer poured with no head and was very light yellow in color. The color, aroma and taste reminded me a lot of Miller High Life. Not a lot going on with this beer, however it would be great after cutting the grass on a hot summer day. Not highly carbonated and slightly sweet in taste.

This is the original kung fu beer! Not impressive taste-wise, but has a very old-skool kitsch appeal. A cheapo light cool beer to enjoy by the roadside stall.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2003
At AIBA 2003. Regular Asian rice beer. Normal appearance with decent head. Flavour is not as bad as expected but not bitter enough. Advice by the brewer's rep. is to always serve very cold, not surprising

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2003
Had this over Chinese food, which was probably not a great idea anyway. Fizzy, almost carbonated, light golden color, very little head or nose, and a dull flavor. Not impressive.
