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.

Light, smooth, but lacks fragrance and character. Ok with Chinese food but doesn’t stand much on its own.

Piękny aromat długo hodowanego skunksa. Złoty kolor, klarowne, bez piany. W smaku nie ma nic. Jest puste, wodniste. Jedyną zaletą tego piwa jest to, że nie jest niesmaczne. Nie ma żadnego odczucia w ustach, poza średnim wysyceniem.

not great, but not horrible. a little sweeter and dryer than you’re standard american macro. an ok sushi beer, but i don’t think i’d ever order one on it’s own."

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.33ml bottle poured in a chalice. Well, this is what I call "almost beer". It’s summer time, it’s hot, we need a refreshing beer and so on, however, this "beer" smell and tastes rice. I admit that corn could be worst... Or not. A: Pale yellow color. Big white head which does not least and does not leave much lacings S: It does not smells beer. It smells strange, something like a rice bark juice or something similar... T: Not good but, could be worst (if it’s an advantage). It tastes malt and rice. It lacks hops nevertheless M: Very light body. Medium carbonation D: Well... Please avoid it. [ BA Review @ 6/11/2010 ]

I gave this beer a fighting chance, on more than one occasion. I tend to order this beer (or more like ’force this stuff upon myself’ because Chinese restaurants usually have CRAPPY beer selections) every time I go out for Chinese.

Tsingtao. Naga London. Straw small head. Low carbonation. Butterscotch. White bread. Faint herbal notes. Sweet light mouthfeel. Dry to crisp. Not my cup of tea.

seritomi (298) - HUNGARY - OCT 14, 2014
Nagyon halvány sárga és még habja sincs. Minimális maláta és egy kis komló illat. Híg édeskés, száraz. Semmi karakter bármelyik kommersz cucc is lehetne. Kb. olyan, mint a Ashai... Na most már ittam kínai sört is.

panzerwolf (62) - FINLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Pours clear gold with fast, light head. Carbonation so that its kind of fizzy, light taste of hops, citrus, cereals. Ok beer but very light, so doesn’t really stick in memory much.
