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.

imdownthepub (11109) - 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.

The color is light yellow. The smell is reminescent of sweat socks. The flavor is of a poor domestic.

Very light for a pilsner style. Watery, no aftertaste. Very light golden color with a light head that disappears quickly. I agree with the floral aroma/taste assessment.

First Chinese beer I've had. Was expecting the worst since I don't like many Chinese foods and I was proven wrong. A little watery but not bad

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.

jercraigs (8288) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2003
Light yellow colour, little or no head. Bit of hoppy bitterness. Not bad considering what it is. Had it at Mandarin Chinese Buffet :)

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2003
Blonde color. Very thin nose. Simple body, some malt, very light sweetness. Simple finish.

Kinz (3414) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2003
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.
