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.

Pours a clear yellow with an initial head that disapears quickly and completely leaving no lacing on the glass. It has a slight skunky smell and rice aroma. It has a slight sweet flavor to it, with minimal hop presence.

Rammer (191) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Very watery. Taste empty, small rice notes. More water than beer. Not Good.

Bière lambda rafraîchissante mais avec un goût si peu prononcé que l’intérêt est moindre.

Mjp12 (493) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
The influence of the rice comes through, but otherwise its a bland macro lager. Drink jasmine tea with chinese food, not this!

Carlisle (116) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Faint metallic aroma. Golden straw color with thick white head that dissipates quickly; some lacing. Weak fizzy malt up front; rice flavor. Short watery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think you can taste the effect of the rice - a bit of extra body to the taste. On top of that it is a generic pale lager. Guess I would drink it if I was over there.

SinH4 (353) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Golden color with small white head. Aroma of sweet grains, something weird (like rice?), a hint of floral hops. Taste is sweet, grainy, sweet. Nothing really. Not unpleasant, just not good.

Chopper925 (238) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle. Clear light yellow color, smallish white head lingering around. Aroma Some floral aroma, a bit dusty. Light sweet, more sour from the carbonation, than bitter, taste. Malty aftertaste, but also a light cardboard note, might be from the added rice. Watery body with a refreshing carbonation. Good drinkability, but nothing more, no aromas, nor taste.

TedE (123) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 13, 2015
330ml bottle into pint glass. Slight malty nose. yellow carbonated thin head. Crisp mild hoppy taste. Quite long bitter finish. Unremarkable, inoffensive, better than a lot of other Asian lagers.

Boxereddy (189) - BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2015
Blond bier met kleine witte schuimkraag. Licht aroma. Zoetig mondgevoel moutig met rijst? Licht bitterige afdronk. Geen topper maar verfrissend in het Chinees restaurant...
