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.

Drinkable is such a good word to describe this lager. Nothing amazing, but definatly drinkable. Thats not saying very much though... because technically gasoline is drinkable. Asian Delight? I think not!

Drinkable Chinese lager, better than some Asian contemporaries but not particularly satisfying. Straw colour, short vanishing head. Bit more aromatic hops than is typical for the region. Quenching palate. This at least has some bitterness. (Bottle)

I always thought this was the Chineese equivilant of Miller/Bud, but I have a few friends that said it was really good. I ordered one at a Thai restaurant, and I knew almost instantly that my inclinations were correct. Skunky, watery, and blah. Im not a fan these kind of lagers, and this beer reinforces that.

Characteristics that you dont want in a beer are present -- tin flavour, skunky, loads of corn flavour, high carbonation... premium lager?? Oops.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Watered down lager. This must be the Budweiser of China. Even in America this stuff isnt very expensive. Dont bother. There are beers that taste the same (watery) and cost less...

Pour is a pale yellow with a small head. Aroma is skunk with some sulfer in there. Smells like a fireworks factory. Flavor is typical lager. Heineken like in more ways than one.

Gold body, white foamy head. Smells of malt and rice. Very carbonated, rather bland taste. Only shows some skunked malts. Decent lager. Sampled in Beijing, China.

i expected the worst with this beer. and trust me it is terrible. it has a nasty skunk taste to it, but it still might be better than a milwaukees best. only by a little though. and i love the beast

Bottled. Pale golden/yellowish colour with small white bubbly head. Hoppy aroma along with skunkyness. Rich carbonation and flavour is sweet malt and hoppy with hints of maize.
