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.

Not overly impressed. The color speaks of water added to beer. The aroma I associate with chinese food.... The actual taste is something hard to remember... it blends into that american standard cat.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2003 This beer was a little too malty for my taste, almost a warm buttery taste at first, followed by a heineken-esque flavor. I had this while eating chinese food and it went very well with the meal. Has a very cloudy pale look while being poured with almost no head at all. Nothing about this beer really screams drink me.

Reminds me of Heineken. Nice malty taste but could use more hop bitterness. Goes good with Thai food.

Much like a traditional pilsner. It has a bit of metallic aroma.

Highly malted yes, highly hopped?....nope. Your normal malty Chinese beer.

watery taste with some hints of malts. A bit of a bitterness. Not much there...

Why did I drink this? Well, my "friend" Libby brought me a bottle, and well, it’s been years since I tried it, so there I went. This brew was dominated by an off tasting, metallic hop bitterness. Another odd thing - the palate was somewhat full on my tongue, but at the same time felt watery on the roof of my mouth. that’s weird. This would be a totally acceptable beverage if you’re eating something hot’n’spicy. When you ask your "friends" to bring you beer, you’d better be specific!!!!

Smells worse than it taste--and taste is not extraordinary. Very carbonated, making it more refreshing. Needs to be drank fast when you are hot and thirsy otherwise do not bother.
