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.

This pilsener beer pours a clear golden color with a small, fizzy white head that does not linger. The aroma is slightly hoppy and grassy with a bit of sweetness from the malts and corn. It has a light body with moderate carbonation and a smooth, slightly watery mouthfeel. The flavor is slightly sweet and the hops show themselves briefly in the finish. Not bad, drinkable with no off flavors, though the flavor it does have is not very impressive. This would make a good, light beer to go with some Asian dishes.

Color is a pale to clear yellow with a small white head, some very small tight lacing. Smell is faintly sweet and some grain as in bread thats soft in the back. Taste is clean and sweet with a grainy backing thats lightly bread-like and finishes with a small bitter hop bit that drys slightly. Feel is light, crisp, and clean with a sweetning thats light and finishes slightly dry and bitter from hop. This was very refreshing to have with my mildly spicey thai food. Would settle for this over many other Asian imports.

Gold color with small white head. Very little aroma. Modest malt flavor with very little hops. OK with my Flaming Phoenix.

Strykzone (5280) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2003
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.

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 (1345) - 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

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.
