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.

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.

PawelD (140) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Kolor bursztynowy klarowny, piana całkiem niezła lecz nie powala. W zapachu o dziwo dosyć chmielowo, ziołowo. W smaku wodniście ale gorycz na przyzwoitym poziomie lecz bez cudów. Ogółem jak na chinola to wielkie zaskoczenie ale nie przesadzajmy.

Aroma: malts, rice. Appearance: clear straw color, white head. Taste: low bitterness, sweetness, pharmaceutical aftertaste, rice. Palate: low body and high carbonation, artificial aftertaste. Overall: What should I say ? Tragedy.

Low scores on the board. I like it for what it is. Goes down easy. Certainly not great, but I found it quite drinkable.

Awesome, glad developing countries are producing shitty beer too. I would hate to have to drink North American junk in other countries. The same old song and dance in an exotic package. Grainy and metallic, crisp and light, carbonated to high hell and primed to enjoy with spicy foods.

tepid transparent lemon, no head. Light rice and lemon nose, tons of cardboard and paper, especially in the sticky flavor, hints of dough with syrupy corn sweetness through finish.
