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.

radio_nowhere (1258) - Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle into pils glass, clear pale golden color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness, grain and faint earth hop. Taste adds faint grass and slight metallic note. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with clean saaz finish. Pretty standard European-style pale lager, no flaws and refreshing.

MarkoNm (1899) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 23, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow color, topped with an average frothy white head, no retention. Malty aroma, sweet grainy notes. Taste is sweet, lightly watery with minimal final bitterness. A bit metallic aftertaste. Not something I’d drink on a regular basis. But passable when ice col, if nothing else around.

Not the worst tasting lager out there that I’ve had but still not a good lager. Why can’t all lager take a leaf out of brands like Sierra Nevada and use more hops for some flavour?

rollerton (192) - SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle from SB. Pours no head. Looks very pale. Smells like old beer cans which are about to be recycled. Tastes almost nothing, a hint of chemicals and metal.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2015
The beer has a normal pilsner appearance. Very clear and light golden yellow. When pouring the beer, there is formation of a lot of rough white foam. The foam disappears within seconds and doesn’t leave a trace. The beer has a refreshing sweet aroma. There is a alcohol sweetness and a bitter aroma. The taste is bice. The beer sure has a hoppy bitterness, which is nice. Very nice beer, nice to drink away.

A very light beer, cerveza style. Dry and crisp lager with a clean finish. Very little hop flavor and no malt.

330 ml bottle in Singapore. Not to bad, taste was a little metallic but crisp and dry. Thin white head quickly disappeared. Grassy aroma.
