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 doesnít 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.

Poured a golden color with a medium white head and some light lacing. Buttery diactyl, and sweet corn aroma. Taste was that of sweet malts, possibly some corn as well, and finishing very lightly hoppy.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Crisp and refreshing. Skunky green aroma in a skunky green bottle. Decent hoppy aftertaste. Not bad at all.

My God this beer smells bad! However, I can live with the taste as long as I donít enhale. Taste is reminicent of Alexander Keithís, not exactly a glowing indorsement to some people but I like it. Not a beer Iíd rush out to buy, but it reminds me of my favorite Chinese dive in Toronto...then again the last time there I got food poisoning.

330ml green bottle from Safeway. Poured a clear amber nicely carbonated with white qd head. Fruity rice aroma with hops note. Nicely balanced crisp light lager flavour. No chemical or metallic flavours& no skunk despite the green bottle. Very long bitter finish. Nice& refreshing.

Not a fan of most lagers...pours as expected...thin white head, nice and yellow :/ Skunky aroma with a hit of hops...MILDLY refreshing...it does go quite well with General Tsaoís chicken though...

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Pours yellow and watery with little head. Smells like it comes in a green bottle, and indeed it does. Flavor is bland and comperable to most other asian lagers I have tasted. Overall, I canít really justify drinking it unless Iím out at a Chinese restaurant eating some spicy Szechuan quisine.

skortila (5334) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2004
Aroma is hoppy, slightly malty, skunky and something weird (which should be the rice). Clear, golden coloured with a fast diminishing head. Taste is better than smell. Initially sparkling beer, becomes more bitter. hoppy, (too) sweet and a little floral. Fresh palate, slightly dry. At least it tastes better than I expected.

Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with this one, except that it is made in China. (Hey, arenít they communist? What are they doing making beer? What is the relationship between those two things? I dunno.) Anyway, doní t buy this at a restaurant as it is tooooo pricey for what you get.

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