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.

Bottled. Best I can say about this is it lets me paste a "China" stamp in my album of country statistics. Big foamy head at pour that hangs around too long. Pale straw color, and generic "beer" smell. Hard to get a good sip out from under the hunka foam. Taste makes me yearn for the more complex flavor profile of a Budweiser. After some effort, I can taste a little malt sweetness and a slightly bitter aftertaste. To paraphrase the old stereotype, it takes much less than an hour again for me to be thirsty... for a real beer. Again, it doesn't taste bad per se, just has no taste at all.

Relatively good as for typical international lager, skinky aroma will be the only flaw, drinkable.

I drank this beer at some opportunities in China. It is a lager, nothing extraordinary, yellow and clear body, average carbonation, thin foam that it is disappearing quickly. The taste is really watery, few malt, no hop. It is a beer for hot abd wet days in China.

Bottled. At Mon Jin Lau, Michigan. Pours very clear, white head. Aroma is light citrus, water. Flavor is corn, wet cardboard, rice. Not great. Not too offensive.

Je sais pas pourquoi je m’emmerde encore à noter des trucs pareil. Évidemment c’est dégueulasse, évidemment il y a un goût de flotte, évidemment ça se pisse mieux que ça se boit...

Clear peal golden color with minimal head. Aroma of grass, rice, and lemon, surprisingly ok. Taste has mild malty sweetness - otherwise quite bland. Light body with prickling mouthfeel. Rich carbonation and light finish.
