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.

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 4, 2016
33cl (BL sampler 1). Bref: dusty, sweet cream of corn diluted with a metallic bitter hop-grassy and grainhusk bite. Should pair well with greasy, sweet, somewhat spicy Chinese fast food that demands regular quenching.

nephirem (169) - CROATIA - APR 4, 2016
Pours clear, pale yellow color with very small white head. Typical lager smell. Thin body with lively carbonation. Texture is watery. Taste is slightly bitter with typical lager aroma. A bit of yeast, malts and kinda grassy. Feels slightly different then local lager beers, I’m guessing it’s due to the added rice. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Overall, plain and mediocre. Good thirst quencher, but nothing more then that.

Bottle from sake hana. Pours clear gold with some head. Aggressive notes of hop, malt, lemongrass, spices and bouquet. Really enjoyable with spicy sushi. I thought it was pretty tasty.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
Bouteille verte. Nez léger de grains de malt et sucré de maïs avec un semblant houblonné. Mince en bouche et légèrement aqueuse. Goût légèrement croustillant de malt lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût malté sucré rappelant le miel et d’un léger goût sulfureux (métallique) puis une très légère amertume de houblon se rajoute au tout. Arrière-goût court très légèrement amer de houblon. [notes 2005]

Grisza77 (504) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Słomkowe, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która dość szybko redukuje się do zera. Aromat słodowy, mało intensywny. W smaku mało przyjemne, sztuczne, apteczne. Goryczka nawet jest, ale bardzo nieprzyjemna, chemiczna. Ogólnie piwo smakuje bardzo sztucznie, jakoś tak chemicznie, zdecydowanie nie warte fatygi.
