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.

Pale yellow with stale cardboard aroma and taste. Compares with all the other mass produced lager of today.

Whatup14 (728) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bouteille 330ml. Couleur jaune doré, mousse blanche fuyante. Arôme de maïs, moufette (merci bouteille verte et SAQ). Goût de maïs, malt, sucré. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen-faible. Bof.

Kita (1084) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with small frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, grass, herbs and cooked vegetables. Tastes light sweet malty and grassy as many other lagers do. I don’t think there are many premium features, maybe crispy water. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. As average as it can be...

Transfer from BA review on 8-11-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a straw yellow color with a one finger pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The smell is of a grassy and lightly sweetened aroma. Along with this is a lighter skunky smell likely due to the non-light defensive green bottle. Taste – The taste begins rather sweet and smooth with a caramel, rice, and a bit of sugariness. As the taste advances, a light hint of a grassy hop flavor works its way onto the tongue as well as a little bit of a candied sweet taste. The combination of flavors combined in the end to leave a rather lingering sweet rice flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the lighter side in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. Not bad more the rice and sweet flavors of the brew as it makes for a rather easy drinking brew. Overall – Ah… easy drinking and moderately refreshing, but nothing really good in this one.

pantumnuss (3) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2014 does not count
This is my first Asian beer. Straw, clear. No foam. The aroma is dominated by notes of rice and daisies. At the beginning much sweetness. Bitterness small but stucks long in the mounth.

Couleur jaune claire, petite mousse blanche. Nez très leger malté. Gout pareil malté et aqueux. Rien d’exceptionel.

Pdubyah (386) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 12, 2014
It pours great, and looks great with a nice head, leaves a decent lacing in the glass too. Has some hop aroma, and a hint of some of that lager familiar roughness, and there is also an lingering mouth taste, but this sets no benchmarks or level to achieve for competitors other than that is’s dead easy to drink, and drink a lot of I imagine, non confrontational, low engagement, not a lot to like, and not a lot to make you not like it if its offered other than it’s all rather a bit ’meh’

Bedni (98) - POLAND - SEP 12, 2014
very light yellow, poor head, no bitterness. maybe it’s not as bad when treat it like a different drink, but as a beer it’s not a good representant ;)

wvhoran (244) - Tasmania, - SEP 12, 2014
640ml bottle, 4.7%. Pale gold gold, dissipating white head. The aroma is vague light malt, lightly grassy. The flavour is light malt, some sweetnes. Dry. A good replacement for water (but remarkably similar) at this particular Chinese restaurant.
