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 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.

Bottle. Skunky aroma hit me before I even got the cap off - has a sharp sour (almost rotting) malt aroma. Light yellow with small head. Slight sweet mildly fruity and tangy malt flavor. Bitter flavor actually comes as an aftertaste. Not horrible, not great.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a light golden yellow. Aroma of corn, and hops with a slightly watered down hoppy flavor. Cleaner finish with some dryness present.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This beer comes out of the glass smelling like stale wet grass. It is gold solution with no head. This beer is thin and watery. The taste goes from bitter to sweet as the aftertaste settles in the throat.

When you feel that need for a beer from China...Im sure that happens a lot...look no further than this jewel of the Orient. Ahh, this pale yellow (light topaz colored--I did say "jewel") liquid simply seems to shimmer in the glass. If this had just been skimmed from the Songhua river Id say it was due to the benzene, but its possible this was bottled pre-spill. Smells like a hoppy fart. Flavor is clear confirmation---this is all ass. Ahh, but what better way to wash down "Number One Chinese Restaurant" buffet delights. Was this stuff ever palatable? Im not sure what smells worse, my burp or taking a whiff from the empty bottle. Neither makes for an exciting choice. Id recommend staying clear of this mess.

Pours a nice golden yellow. Aromas of malts, hops. Crisp hop bitterness and dry finish.

Absolutelly disgusting. The smell was terrible and the taste was just as bad... No head, no color... Normally I recommend trying everything once, but unless youre getting it free, dont waste your money.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Pale yellow color with a medium white head. Sweet grassy aroma. Flavor starts with a light bitterness followed by a light sweetness and a hint of grass. wasnt expecting much and wasnt disappointed.

Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Light bodied, yellowish clear. Just like rolling rock, heineken, grainy with a corn taste. Not worth $8.59.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) 4.5% ABV in my version. Pilsener golden with a creamy, white head. Lovely nose full of aroma hops. Soft and quite sweetish malty with a touch of chicken fodder (from the added corn or rice). No real bitterness. 291105
