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.

I dunno who classified this as a premium lager because it certainly isnít premium. There are a lot worse beers out there, it was kind of light and refreshing without any huge flavour. A bit on the dull side and not much head. It isnít going to knock your socks off, but its probably a lot better than most Chinese beers.

Much compact foam and creamy one; optimal persistence. Discreet scent but without pretensions, to read notes of malt and grass. Much limpid and diamond, persistent bubbly. Fresh and light taste. Balanced with a determined bitter. Unexpected.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2011 This was the first and last time I will try this beer. Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a straw yellow color with a small soapy white head. The aroma was sour and skunky. The flavor was sour malt, skunk, and a bit corny. The mouthfeel was surprisingly thick which was the only redeeming quality I could find. Drain pour. ANY BREWER WHO CONSENTS TO PUTTING THE BEER IN A GREEN BOTTLE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER BREWING AGAIN!!!!!!!�

A lager like any other for the most part. Light tasting, only with a touch of bitterness at the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2008 Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of bread, toast and skunk. Flavor is sweet with a little tangy bitterness.

Although it is slightly bitter, and I like bitter, this is a fairly watery brew with little to recommed it. It would be inoffensive with dinner in a chinese restaurant.

frosted lager glass / surprisingly not that bad. i had it with my dinner at an asian restaurant called Aloha, in Decatur, IL. i prefer the food. there were actually some flavor, but iím not remembering what it was; otherwise, itís a bit sweet, and itís active. rice? anyway... iím guessing this would be cloying and anything that is far away from drinkable, if let to warm. drink it cold, and use it to wash down your food.

My friend bought a bottle of this at papago. Poured some in a glass for me. Well a bitter beer that maybe to me itís only purpose besides the free tee shirt is another rating.

This stuff was awful. Terrible bitter taste, no head, just kind of sat there in the glass not doing anything. After I swallowed it, it just kind of sat there in my gut waiting to be expelled. Which I did in due time.
