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.

Pleasant but nothing special. I’ve 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; it’s 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.

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.

Bottle. For the price of this beer I don’t think it’s worth it. No defining aroma. Decent appearance with a decent head. Flavor is’nt bad but not great. The good thing about this beer is that it goes well with chinese food.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear, golden colored beverage with a small fizzy white head that dissipated very quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was skunky, grainy and malty … not very well balanced if you ask me. The body was thin and weak with slightly flat carbonation and a watery texture. The taste started off on the sweet side and then slid to a quick bitter finish. This is not one that I would choose to drink.

Bottle. Grainy with perhaps a little malt. Sweet thin fizzy body. Boring and not really possible to complement it by saying its crisp and refreshing, but at least it was cold.

Didn’t expect much, but have been hitting some of these asian swills lately. Bottle opened with a strong skunk smell. Color was pretty light, yellow with a very slight off orange tint. Huge head merley from the artificial carbonation and it subsided just like a soda (some lacing throughout, though). Mouthfeel was decent for a swill and the flavor was corn malty with a mild (pleasant) hop finish that would be typical of a weak Pilsner. Wasn’t a great beer, but I’ve had worse.

Bottle: Skunky aroma, porued a see-through amber with large, frothy head. Watery flavor, reminded me of a Miller Lite, but aftertaste was better. A sweet taste, should probably be taken with Chinese food to get the full experince. I’d rate higher, but the flavor doesn’t do much alone. Not a bad beer, just not a good one either.

[bottle from peckhams] bland, skunky, cereal bollocks. I’ll avoid this in future.
