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.

Hoppy, sweet aroma, bit of adjunct. Weak but pleasant. Bright amber color with slight head. Medium, watery body and medium carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Slightly sweet with mild bitter end and after. A nice everyday beer, really good with spicy food.

Light gold - med creamy head. Weak aroma: light skunk and cooked rice. Somewhat vegetal - cooked onions? Smells strangely like the food its often served with. Mostly clean and bland - a little bitterness. Either my palate has overly adapted tonight or this is one seriously bland beer.

Light bodied with peculiar, different sweet flavour. Still, nothing special.

An ordinary blonde color with the faint corn/rice--beer aroma of mass produced, peroxided beers. Easy, clean flavor. While this beer does nothing to test the palate, it is palatable.

Aurelius (4031) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
Roast grain and slightly skunked aroma. Medium gold and fair head, fading to a border lace. Bready, sweet, grainy. Above average pilsener. I was ready to savage this beer, but was pleasantly surprised. Very German/Czech tasting, though lightly hopped.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2002
A waste of good rice. The aroma I got was disgusting--not inappropriate to say it reminded me of a garbage pile, but also like the starch residue on a cooking pot when you leave it sit out overnight after making rice. The color was amazing--highly artificial translucence in an ugly urine-yellow. The flavor was only slightly better. This was a drain pour, literally, after half the bottle.

I’d like to thank my good friend Jon for drinking bad beer when we went to a happy hour after work, so that I could have a sip and incrase my number of ratings by one for free. Plus, I could rate a bad beer on a sip instead of having to invest in an entire bottle. Yuck!! Quickly dissipating foamy head, very clear and watery. Awful smell, I swore that it reeked of garbage.
