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 liked this beer. It is a very mild beer and not the least bit substantial. However, it drank quite smoothly and left no bad aftertaste. Give it a try.

Not bad at all for an Asian beer. Actually rather crisp and pleasant. Try it with Vietnamese food. Cools it down just right.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Clear, light yellow in color with little to no head. Lighly malt flavor with light floral notes. Light malt flavor, sweet. Fizzy and enemic, not recommended.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2003
Very pale yellow color. Fizzy white quickly dissipitating head. The nose is extremely skunked, I doubt one could find a fresh version outside of China. Also hints of slight grass and light sugar. The body has a light spritz at the beginning with a surprising light hop bitterness. Gets into some sugar at the close and finishes dry and sprtizy with just a touch of dust. I'm sure there must be better beers in China.

haukur (1344) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 14, 2003
I was expecting alot worse. I was expecting something like the american budweiser, with an overwhelming piss and rice taste. This was alot better, nice yeasty aroma, some hints of rice, a very refreshing brew

celogan (201) - Oroville, California, USA - JUN 5, 2003
This isn't too bad. Poured a light straw yellow with nearly no head and almost non existant lacing. Light but pleasant flavor. Moderate carbonation. This might be Decent on a hot day.

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.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 26, 2003
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.
