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’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.

I really enjoyed reading the many entertaining comments and ratings left in regards to this beer. In fact, I enjoyed them more than I did the beer itself. I would actually rather drink ice water, yes, even with my Chinese food.

Bloody hell these boys know how to destroy beer. What a stench. Tastes like stale twisties. Do not drink this.

Only drinkable in a Chinese restaurant. I would never purchase it in a store.

I always look forward to grabbing a few of these at my favorite Chinese restaurant. I was more than pleasantly surprised the first time I tried this.*Re-rate* This brew pours with a clear golden light body and lively carbonation. The mostly diminishing head is frothy white and average sized with fair lacing. The nose is light with hints of caramel, and flowers. The initial flavor is malt sweetness. The finish is well balanced. The texture is light and crisp and clean at the finish. Both flavor and nose improve drastically as brew approaches cellar temperature.

Light malt nose and piss yellow color. Stale cardboardy taste. Thin. Not good.

First hoppy aroma - whoever, it looks ugly yellow and tastes like water with a little sign of hops. There is bottled water with more flavour than this beer!

Low , faintly malty aroma. No head and straw coloured. Sweet malt in the mouth quickly disappears in the aftertaste which becomes dry and flavourless.

Grainy, pilsner aroma which was typicaly uninteresting. Palate is full bodied for a pils, watery middle, finishes balanced with a little malt. Not that bad, I could probably get sloppy off this one if I was looking for a pounder, but would probably just choose a cheap American if I was in the market for somethin’ like this.

Once I finally tasted it, it tasted totally like Rolling Rock. Not a good thing. My fingers sure are sore as hell from lifting the bottle with chopsticks though.
