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.

Quite horrible corny and grassy hop aroma after bottle opening. After tasting its quite gone, at least unpleasant aspects. Still its very watery, bit malty, some grain, rice, light hops. Basically sweet with light bitterness. In proper temperature very refreshing and quite balanced for so watery brew. If you are thirsty, then this is one good watery thirst quencher with some qualities of beer

zapach skunksa (zielona butelka) do tego lekki chmiel (zioła) i słody. przyzwoity, ale nie urzeka. kolor bardzo jasny, jasnosłomkowy. piana jak z pepsi, mała i momentalnie znika. w smaku dość pusto. lekka słodowość, kukurydza, lekka kwaśność i niska ale wyczuwalna goryczka która momentalnie znika. pozostawia dość nieprzyjemne, suche uczucie w ustach. spodziewałem się, że będzie dużo gorzej, choć za premium lagera to bym tego nie uznał.

Pale golden with a white head - some malts in the aroma - malt body with some bitterness in the back - short malt finish - This was ok, especially with a hot spicy chinese meal

Czuć estry owocowe i skarpetę. Kolorek słoma, klarowny. Smak płaski, minimalna goryczka. Pijalność średnia, łatwo wchodzi. Ogólnie nie polecam, raczej do podlewania grilla niźli do spożycia.

It has a very pale straw color that is very clear with lots of visible carbonation. The head is thin, white in color and fades out quickly leaving no lace behind. Its aroma has big floral nose with light grainy malts along with a light skunky smell. Despite the skunk in the aroma the flavor is very clean with mild floral and delicate grainy sweetness followed by a mild bitterness in the finish. It has an easy drinking light body with just enough fizzy carbonation to give it some life.

Clear, golden colour with minimal white head. Weak aroma of malt and hop. Low bitterness, medium sweetness. Medium carbonation, little watery mouth-feel. Typical international lager. Not interesting.

Tsingtao premium lager o słomkowej barwie i słabej pianie. Dzięki niemu poznałem zapach kanalizy w piwie. Nie jest to najmilszy z zapachów. Po tym nowym doświadczeniu zabrałem się za ocenę goryczki tu jak na lagera przyzwoicie - coś jest, może niezbyt szlachetna ale jest. Później odczucie w ustach i tu kolejna wada - drętwienie języka. Smak natomiast zaskakujący, czyli czysty, orzeźwiający. Niestety po lekkim ogrzaniu się trunku wyszedł alkohol w smaku.

Bottle at a sushi restaurant. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have extremely mild corn, grainy malt, soft rice notes, mild bitterness and a hint of ginger (or was that from the sushi?). This is cold, wet alcohol and just a tick.

Color is pale gold. Small initial head and vanish very fast. Low carbonation. Body is watery. Aroma is malt and rice. Low bitterness and some sweeterness. Aftertaste is very abrupt and bitter.
