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 could just be because I had it with a good chinese meal but I quite enjoyed this beer. Bit pricey though.

Pale yellowy appearance, slightly hazed, moderate head formation. Malty, grainy, lightly hopped aroma. Sweet malt intro, slightly coarse and grainy. Dry in the finish with a mild bitterness. Fairly simple, acceptable in a Chinese restaurant.

Sweet kinda maltesqe nose, yellow with minimum head. Fairly livly in the mouth, sweet but prehaps a bit too much. Finnished slighly grainy and dry. No real defining charatoristics. It wasnt out right bad but it definitly wasnt good. Prehaps "smuh" is the word Im looking for.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2009 Smells vaguely floral and sweet. Pours a light golden with no head to speak of. Beer is a bit thicker than i expected, and is actually a bit sweet and decently balanced. Finish is watery. No real adjunct flavors, at least. Easy to drink and very very mild. I’ve had worse, and i could imagine sort of enjoying it in China.

I remember having this and thinking "this is the chinese budweiser". It’s been some time since I’ve had this one. Tasted of hops and a hint of skunk.

Drinkable beer but kind of boring and very light. It is very thirst quenching and hey, it’s NOT a Bud and doesn’t leave a nasty aftertaste. Very crisp and refreshing.

Tried at O.C. Not impressed at all. Right up there with Sapporo and Kirin Ichiban. If you like Bud, this beers for you!

Why is it that un-/under- developed countries produce bad beer? Is it a requirement? Pours yellow - big shock there. Smells slightly skunked but otherwise sweet with notes of corn - another surprise. Taste is not too awful. Again sweet, and a bit crisp. Mild hops. Better than most of them. Finish is slightly bittersweet. Not the worst but it continues a bad trend.
