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.

Floral aroma, tastes a bit florally too, a bit unususual, a bit watery, a bit simple. cheers

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2003
This tasted like a watered down skunky moosehead. That's about the best description I can give.

Light yellow colour, little or no head. Bit of hoppy bitterness. Not bad considering what it is. Had it at Mandarin Chinese Buffet :)

fiulijn (14790) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2003
Blonde color. Very thin nose. Simple body, some malt, very light sweetness. Simple finish.

I've had this on tap in Hong Kong, very refreshing beer there. This was perhaps the best bottle I've ever consumed in the states. Very light pilsener coloration, a bit fizzy. Floral nose. Floral hops also dominate the flavor. Rather nice, really, and very refreshing. Not a complex beer, but enjoyable. Very prone to skunking horribly though.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Skunky toast aroma, light hops pushing through. I drank half of this and poured the rest into a pot of cooking bratwursts. The taste was light and malty but the skunkiness was a little too pronounced for my tastes.

I wish I could be more constructive, but this just tasted like skunked Molson.

The commercial description touts the water used to brew the beer, thus (in my mind) making it the Chinese equivalent to Olympia. 'nuff said.

Not that bad of a beer, but could be so much better if it were not skunked. Kind of reminds me of Heineken, with the skunkiness and bitterness. Crisp and somewhat refreshing.

Run of the mill, mass produced beer. Pleasant hint of hops in the nose. Don't mean to seem unpatriotic, but I'll drink it.
