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.

Bottle at a Chinese Food place. Poured into a frozen mug. Oh joy. Frothy white head and a very yellow, clear pour. Aroma was mostly nothing. A little funk smell was all. Taste was extremely watery with hints of bitter hops and an almost sour aftertaste. Blah. I couldn’t even finish it.

Shitty foam, funky aroma, pissy consistency but I’m sure it tastes fine in the heat.

Clear pale yellow color with a small white head. Light aroma with some hints of grain. Medium body and an average carbonaton. Ok bitterness. Grainy and herbal flavor.

King_Alex_II (790) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Pale yellow color with fast disappearing foam. Light smell of wet grains. The taste is crisp and refreshing, but not much more than that. Standard maltiness, standard bitterness, standard carbonation. Short malty aftertaste.

Barwa słomkowa, słaba piana. Zapach pusty, smak też + jakiś dziwny odrzucający aromat.

Bière de soif comme les classiques Carlsberg, Heinkel, Stella ou autre. Couleur très claire, pas de nez, légère au palais.

Schmeckt nach kaum was, aber durchaus süffig. Hinterlässt im Gegensatz zu anderen billigen Lagern keinen schlechten Nachgeschmack, im Gegenteil es ist sogar angenehm. Völlig in Ordnung, aber einmal trinken reicht.

640ml bomber. Pours a standard pale yellow color. No head, no lacing. Aroma is actually decent, with nice grassy notes. Flavor is slightly malty, with a sourness. Kind of astringent aftertaste. Not as drinkable as I’d hoped.
