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 sometimes drink this beer at my local Dim Sum pusher! It is a very light pilsener but it has some kind of interesting crispy feeling to it (almost like Champagne....). Very thin and watery with very little flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2003 Bottle. This is pretty standard fare, but it does have a nice chalky quality to it, and is reassuringly crisp. This is a classic session beer for a night down the Arcadian Centre in Birmingham.

Lacy, wispy, creamy head. High-maltiness to the nose and to the taste buds as well. Rich tasting. A clear, golden hue. Taste is ultimately thin and sweet. Watery. Reminds me a little of a Riesling wine. Similarly, it also makes a pleasant companion to eclectic and spicy Chinese or other Asiatic cuisines.

Bought this in a 22 oz green bottle, Poured very nicelly into the glass quite an impressive head for a lager beer..went down a bit but still nice. Good golden colour. Smells pretty good too some malt light hops. Taste however is pretty average..its not bad but its hardly good. Feels light in the mouth and its drinkable..I bought this to go along with the Szechuan chicken i prepared at home..it does a good job with this spicy dish

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2003
I was anything but impressed with this beer. Not recommended unless you are truly into Pilseners. It poured a small sized white head that was smooth with fine-small sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body had very, very little carbonation and it was clear with a yellow hue. The nose was malty as was the flavor. The palate was tingly and watery and light bodied. The lacing was very sparse.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2003
Straight forward, Floral on the nose. Herbal and medicinal. Is the only beer i have tried that is very rich but light and easy drinking. Fair. Wont jump to buy again.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2004 Had a thick white head that didn't stay around. The smell suggests malt and hops, but still doesn't have a lot of flavor.

thedm (4952) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 9, 2003
This brew poured a small head of fine to large sized white colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated straw yellow colored body and a minimal lace. The aroma was a very mild malt hop one. The mouthfeel was tingly and bubbly from its start to its finish. The flavor was a typical malt hop one with a little bite and bitterness.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Pilsner color. No head. Skunky smell and flavor. Floral and metallic as well. Smooth and bitter in the aftertaste but not a very nice beer.

imdownthepub (10497) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Pale insipid yellow beer, thin head. Thin, watery flavour, a little hop impact saves the day but won't be searching it out.
