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.

This used to be my favorite beer. Then i think i over did it. Now, it's just nice to have here and there, but nothing special anymore.

Bottle. Yellow colour with very small white foam. Weak aromas of lemon and malts. Taste is metallic and to the sweet side, some malty and bitter notes. Thin, watery body. Medium carbonation.

Straightforward. Put one in the air and it’s light in color. Host this in the best way

tfontana (61) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is of skunk. Appearance is clear pale yellow with tiny white coating (wouldn’t even call it a head). Taste is minimal--hard to tell what it is because it was skunky. Palate was light bodied with burst of lively carbonation at the tip of the tongue with abrupt finish. Overall, a novelty to have at an Asian restaurant, really cold.

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle at China City Buffett on Harrison Avenue in Dent. Pale yellow color, sweet aroma, thin body, mostly light sweet taste with a little more heft in the finish, backround flavor tastes like an adjunct I can’t quite place. Better than when I tried it during my student days. It tasted like an odd beer/vegetable soup mixture then. The current version is better than I expected and a cut above the usual macro suspects but nothing I would order at a place with a better selection than China City Buffett has.

ordybill (520) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- large skunky presence. Appearance- A clear golden yellow color with a small white head Taste- Has a hoppy flavor but there is that skunky bite to it. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- it is an average beer that goes well with food.

Hmmm, its not a really bad lager, but it has a weird aftertaste ... A bit metal like.

Average golden colour, white tiny head, without aroma, average pilsner taste with notes of rye?, watery finish, medium carbonation. This is Premium?

BeerInHeaven (227) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2015
pours clear straw gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is slightly skunky hay/grass, very reminiscent of many Euro lagers. Taste is clean and somewhat watery. Fast sweetish finish. Not great, but not terrible.
