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.

From a cans hared at the DC Epic Sour Beer Tasting. Thanks Travlr! Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Light malty nose and flavors. Save this one to go with Szechuan cuisine where its many flaws will be masked while helping to put out the flames in your mouth.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Dreadful. Tingy, metal, water tastes prosessed, so this is a double whammy. If served next to freezing then it can be drunk with whatever South East Asian food when there’s no other beer alternatives. Fun fact, I last had this in a Thai restaurant in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Dzhigga (110) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 30, 2014
Can. Golden color with small fast-disappearing head. Malty aroma. Light sweet taste. Watery texture. Absolutely nothing interesting. South beer.

snowdog140 (32) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Very golden pale appearance with a fair bit of carbonation, aroma is very hoppy as one might expect from a lager, but is actually quite pleasant, not too overpowering. Taste is very typical of a lager but a refreshing palate, perfectly acceptable but not something to choose over any craft ale.

RhetoricalAns (172) - Toronto, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Pour golden with a thin fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Thin body with a weak corn taste. Hardly any aroma.

BreWedge (294) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
330 ml bottle sample at Pho Van Van Ottawa. Pours a pale clear gold with a large pillowy white head. Aromas are a little funk, adjuncts (rice or corn), and a little chalkiness. Tastes are spent grain, a little alcohol, and mild tinny bitterness. Very thin and watery, strong carbonation and a medium tinny finish. Blech!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Lys gul med hvitt luftig skum. Lukter malt og noe sitrus. Tynn leskende lager. Noe tam. Tørstedrikke!
