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.

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.

Bright gold with white bubbly head that lasts for a little while until it recedes into a thin cover. Some pleasant noble hops and some malt to balance it with only a touch of pepe le pieu. Very little flavour that contains some hops and, unexpectedly, raisin and grain. No bitterness to speak of. Light body and good carbonation level.

Boring,bland, and so many better choices abound for this cuisine. But if thatís the only import they offer, Iíll have one or four...

Pretty much the Budweiser of China. Light Yellow pour with rapidly declining head. Palate is weak. Not bad overall, but not great.

The best way to describe this one is Bush beer with a Chinese label. Iíve been experimenting with various Asian beers lately for a party Iím throwing and definitely will not be offering this one to my guests. Nothing special here.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Cheap yellow gold color with a white head and little to no lacing. Ceral grains in aroma and taste. Slight grassy hops. Weak palate. Not offensive...just a mild summery brew.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Nothing special here.Decent golden color,small head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was maybe a light malt with a bit of a sweet side and a hint of hops.The flavor was decent light malty side some mild bitterness and mild hop showing.Over all it finished up fairly clean with a thin feel.Not bad but definately could be better.
