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.

[Tasted in Sapa, Vietnam.] Real a dissapointment. Had heard rumours about some hoppiness, but it was a just watery beer to my vietnamese nem (springrolls).

Pale yellow lager. Had it cold with a 10-course chinese dinner for which it fitted perfectly, which explains why I’ve upped the Overall score a bit :)

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Definitely a bit of a surprise with its crisp tart taste and refreshing finish

Tastes like a US macro at a premium price. If you close your eyes you’ll think its a Bud.

Looks clear and pale golden in the glass. Light and a bit sparkling mouthfeel. A quite common lager. OK, but not a unforgettable one.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2006
This offering had no head or lacing. Color was the palest of yellow. Aroma was that of a rice lager. Mouthfeel was light to medium and fizzy. Slightly resinous palate. Crisp, light taste, quite nice for a lager actually. I’d revisit this one; especially if I were out to retire some replicants...

Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 5, 2006
Can 330 ml:
Pours a clear light golden color. Head is big white and frothy but dissolves fast. It leaves a tiny ring. Aroma is lightly hoppy with german lager hops giving herbal and soft citrusy notes. Decent malty presence showing hints of cereal and fruits. Wait...now a little warmer I get fruits like banana...Belgian yeast? weird and unexpected. Flavor is surprisingly decent. Soft and fruity. Sweet without bitter counterbalance. Touches of vanilla, banana and fresh herbs. I expected much worse. This doesn’t taste like a cheap swill lager at all. Light body, watery texture. Low carbonation. Finish is short. Lagerish veggie aftertaste. Much better than I thought and went well with the chinese food (Chap Suey and Chaufan Rice)

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2006
Pretty boring beer. Taste is nothing special. Metallic palate in the mouth. Bit watery, won’t drink this again in Holland. Maybe if I’m in China and there isn’t anything else.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Clear light golden pour under a very thin white head an no lacing. Modest citus notes in an otherwise weak aroma. Standard lager flavor profile with little to distinguish itself from other mass produced brews save for a tad more hops than most. Watery texture and no finish to speak of. If you’re looking for a mostly tasteless lager for your Chinese take out, this is a better choice than any of the American macros, but its still a weak beer.

2.2
DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 The beer had a gold color and a small white head. Decent carbonation. Good clean crisp, but lacking in the taste department
