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.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Out of a bottle, its light, a little cloudy, quickly dispersing head. Aromas of grains, similar to American macro brews. The taste is nothing to write home about. Watery, but not bad. Goes very well (as it should) with Asian cuisine.

Very pleasing to the palate especiialy when paired with Chinese food (that is being consumed in huge quantities). Very light in color. Much subtler than the Pale Ales that I am used to.

(bottle) Poured golden yellow. Yeast and hops apparent. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 Its the most common beer in chinese restaurants here in Greece. If well chilled then its ok.

Tmoney99 (14287) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Bottle 12oz. Clear light amber with small white head. Small aroma. Light body with small texture. Light flavor with little to no finish. Clearly a below average lager.

My wife said the aroma wafts of skunk piss and malt, whatever that means. Nice golden color, decent pils pour. Unlike some of the other comments I found this to be an all over satisfying brew on par with a Heiniken or a Becks, but with a lighter swallow. Overall I would pick this up again.

MoritzF (9803) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2005
(bottle) Clear yellow/straw colour with a medium frothy white head. Weak malty aroma, slightly skunky. Sweetish flavour, medium body, somewhat crispy mouthfeel. Starts a bit sweetmalty turning into a low and short hoppy, slightly perfumed finish. This one is not that bad and I can imagine to have it with tasty/spicy (southern) chinese food, but I would prefer a sweet Riesling wine with a well-balanced sweetness-acidity proportion from Germany or Austria.and believe me or not: my best friend I had in the Kindergarten near Frankfurt/Main (greetings to Udo Krick !) is one of the grandsons of the founder of the brewery during Germanys former colonial times.

Bottle. Smells slightly sour and tastes the same. Light hoppy presence (slight bitterness) but nothing to rave about. Quite watery with little aftertaste. I wasnt expecting much, but its tastier then some of the cheap domestics Ive had. I wanted to try a chinese beer and I guess Ill be looking for something different to try.

Out of a can with an old fashioned pull off ring pull...it almost explodes when opened. As far as Asian beers are concerned, run of the mill

I was gonna wait ti I went to a Chinese restaurant, but it was on sale. As far as generic country lagers go, this is definitely at or near the top of my list. Good slightly warm too, great for what it is.
