COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Eructoblaster (3711) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2004
Highly carbonated yellow body topped with a thick but quick fading head. Due to the green bottle, the beer exhales a skunky aroma in the first stage. Then comes a weak malty perfume. Taste is watery and lightly bitter. Palate is close to none. I am not disappointed because I wasn’t expecting more than a cheap macro lager.

This has got to be one of the worst beers i ever had to suffer.Even with a chinese meal it´s so f***ing bland and boring.If this is made from spring water then the chinese authority have a serious problem with water polution.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Eh. Watery, flat and decidely undistinctive on all counts. Definite skunkiness. I can’t recommend this beer anyone, but the name is fun to say.

A watery mess. Bland to the dull end. Ricey ending gives a sicky sweetness. Should have known better.

The only thing that I like about this lager is listening to goober try to pronounce it. If you are a 14 year old reading this, please say "CHING-DOW." I will from time to time order this at a chinese restaurant when I’m dining on something really spicy. You see, the ethanol is really the only saving grace to this fluid. Does this brewery really import yeast and malted barley to make this? I didn’t know that China imported anything...

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottled. Pale golden beer with a fine, steadily rising head. Strong rice aroma and flavour. The first sniff and taste of this beer send you reaching immediately for the details on the bottle. ‘Rice’ stands out proudly on the bottom of the label. Not a great larger but at least they're not hiding the fact they use adjuncts. Low bitterness and a distinct lack of malt and hops.

Pailhead (6352) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Bottle: As soon as I poured the beer I could smell the skunkiness from arms length. Pale yellow in appearance with a good white head. Tasted just as bad as it smelled, skunky. Bitter aftertaste. I’m sure this was just a really bad skunked beer, but to date this is the worst beer I’ve ever had and I can’t see myself giving it a second chance to see if it was just a bad bottle. *******Re-Rate******* OK, I summoned the courage to try this again and it was not as bad as the first time. Still skunky, but not as overpoweringly skunky as my first attempt. Still not good, but not as bad as my initial rating of 0.8. I must have had a really bad bottle.

Bottled. Why green bottles I’ll never know. Beer smelled and tasted skunky. Once you get past that tasted like any other lager.
