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.

GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a clear yellow with an initial head that disapears quickly and completely leaving no lacing on the glass. It has a slight skunky smell and rice aroma. It has a slight sweet flavor to it, with minimal hop presence.

Auto skunked from the green bottles. Just nothing to this beer. Very water-like and tasteless. However it is smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lot of craft beers on the market in Australia that taste like crap. If you like Carlton Draught from tap and the rebrew of VB back to the original and you are in China, this is the beer to get. @24hrs a day available in subway vending machine and seven elevens around China at 60c a can, absolutely awesome and in heaven

wombat23 (1234) - Texas, USA - APR 11, 2017
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a very pale clear yellow color with a short-lived white head. Aroma of grains and skunk. Taste is corn, skunk, chemicals. Im more than a little skeptical of the "purity of its water" statement in the description...

darbeer75 (830) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2017
Aroma: dry and ricey; kind of sour; Appearance: clear yellow pour with no carbonation; Taste: follows nose but not too sweet; could be worse; Palate: light bodied with short finish; Overall: enough to get a China tick I suppose.

bobroman (1047) - Torun, POLAND - APR 2, 2017
Not very intensive aroma of malts with noticeable rice. Small completely disappearing head. Light golden body, with white floating flakes. Pleasant bitterness in taste with appropriate carbonation, not too sweet.

Evilman (210) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAR 29, 2017
Well... Clearly not a great drink. Obvious but so boring, even for a soft beer. On par with Heineken, refreshing if served cold but definitely not something you want to drink to enjoy a good moment. Wheat taste, simple, badly brewed... Theres really not much to say about it. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Kauge (1879) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 28, 2017
Bottle from Comarket. 4.7%. BB 01.09.2017. Pours pale golden, clear, with rather persistent off-white head. Fairly pleasant grainy aroma with a kind of fakeish sweet juicy aspect and a hint of grassy hops. Watery grainy flavour with what seems like artificial sweetener. Watery on the palate, moderately crisp carbonation. Not a horror to be honest but still quite irritable. Thought it would be much worse, hence my rather positive score.

nathanvc (360) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2017
Pours clear, golden, sparkling with a small white head. The aroma contains malt, rice, maize and grain. It tastes light sweet. Watery texture, average carbonation. Soft and refreshing.
