COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grass, grain and malts. Taste is basically the same.

phfyysik (168) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 7, 2016
Pours clear light golden with very small top that disappears quickly. Very light, malty aroma, some hay and dust as well. Taste slightly bitter, some sugar and corn notes. Dusty. Reminds a lot Russian classic Zhiguli, only bit sweeter and more dusty. Only with food with strong taste.

venom666 (690) - Elche, SPAIN - FEB 7, 2016
Really pale and clear golden color with medium white head. Sweet aroma, corny, malty, cerealy and slight artificial hops. Taste follows the aroma, moderate sweetness on the palate, with malts, cereals and cupboard.

0,33l bottle. Typical lager. Nothing special, dull, slightly metallic and sour. No hops, little malts.

Michcio (273) - Gdansk, POLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Barwa złota, klarowne, skąpa biała piana, dość szybko znika. W aromacie słodowość, tak poza tym to nic się w kwestii zapachu nie dzieje. W smaku trochę słodkawe, ale przeraźliwie puste, słodowe, ale w nieprzyjemny sposób, jakby mokre siano. Goryczka niska, nawet bardzo niska, wysycenie wysokie, szczypiące. Nie dość, że puste, to i tak nieprzyjemne w odczuciu. Po chińskim lagerze spodziewałem się mniej niż po europejskich wytworach i się nie zawiodłem, tzn. jest tak słabo, jak się obawiałem. Ale zawsze mogło być gorzej, bo jednak nie poszło w kanał.

nausicaaonacids (50) - PORTUGAL - JAN 15, 2016
Average pils beer, golden color and light taste, light on alcohol as well. Had it both on bottle and can, not much difference.

BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2016
Nice Chinese lager. Bitter tones, but with a fresh taste that makes it enjoyably drinkable.

ANZUShophunter (206) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2016
From bottle in footed pilsner. Pours pale yellow straw colour with frothy head and a faint fruity/yeasty aroma. Taste, like the aroma, is mild.

Dourada clara sem espuma, me lembra muito o sabor das cervas brazucas, tipo Itaipava e Schincariol. Dá pra tomar mas não vale o preço! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Horrible lager. Has an off taste and aftertaste. No head or lacing with some carbonation. Tastes like dried out hay.
