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 doesnt 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.

Not bad for a mass-produced beer. Originally brewed by the Germans then the brewery was handed over to the Chinese. A skunky hop-aroma with an herbal characteristic. Light body. Drinkable, good for parties.

Golden color with small white head. Nice lager aroma of malts and a bit of skunk. The flavor was refreshing and smooth. Malty notes to go along with some noble hops. It leaves a pleasant malt aftertaste that isnt too sweet. Other than the small skunk smell I couldnt detect a fault in this beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2006
33 cl bottle 4.5%. No yeast at the bottom. Light golden clear colour with a weak head. Aroma of rice, grain, malt and some hops. Flavour of rice, malt and hops very light but drinkable for a lager.

hopdog (12083) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle. Poured a lighter golden/yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of corn, grain and malts. Tastes of corn with a light honey sweetness. Thin and watery body.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 355 mL bottle: Why are people being so hard on this pale lager? OK, it is not so much "premium" as "light." It is sweet and goes down smoothly, some good qualities in a lager. Not much hops or bitterness, easy-drinking for sure. To complain this lacks body is to miss the point of what this lager is trying to be, so just take it for what it is. Watery, sort of, but refreshing. Compared to choking back some of our macro import canned lagers, this is very smooth.

Golden-colored, small white head. Sweet grainy aroma. Taste is also somewhat sweet; not bad but lacking any complexity. Pretty boring, but drinkable. Singha is better.

scanman (150) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Pleasant but nothing special. Ive had this lager a dozen or so times and never seems to impress me. Malty and lacks zing, not really refreshing

This beer is a lot better than the average American macro-brew; its lacking compared with the average euro-import, or good American brews like Yuengling. Sweet but not offensively so, some hops and some bitterness. Overall my complaint is of the body--it is thin as water. If they made this one a little bit richer and fuller, it would be a decent beer.

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2006
Pale yellow with a head that fizzed out quickly. Malty and a bit watery, but crisp and cool.

Bottle. I was impressed for a pale lager. Tsing Tao has a smoothe taste still it is not a high end beer.
