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.

Re-rated, bottled, alc. 4.7 % (bottled 10/2007)
Golden color, creamy white head. Skunky sweet corn aroma, which is not nice. Paperboadish, quite sweet corn/rice flavor. Quickly vanishing flavor. Yes, Chinese Bud. (2/2/2/2/6 1.4)

FatPhil (17500) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2010
Bland lagery aroma and look. Palate quite sweet and lychee-like retronasals. Body quite watery, but crisp. Slight papery hops, but not offensive. A touch corny in places, fortunately no poop.

yngwie (17364) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Bottle. Light golden with white head. Some malt in aroma and taste, but generally very light. A little citric aftertaste. (050923)

Benzai (16993) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 The Tsingtao I’ve had was 4.7% ABV. To me it tasted like another mass produced lager. Nothing special.

brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 31, 2011
A: The beer pours a pale straw color with lots of visible carbonation and a short lived white head. S: Lots of corn and rice aromas to it, which isn’t really surprising. A light/pale malt aroma and a little bit of flowers and grass. Minimal yeast and bread notes. T: A light bready flavor with a surprising amount of malt flavor. Light bitterness and grassy notes with just a hint of skunk. Sweet grain, particularly from the adjuncts. M: Light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: A light and easy to drink beer. Not really my favorite, but it goes well with a Chinese meal.

Dedollewaitor (16581) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a off white head. Mild malts - hay/grass with a medium & short bitterness. Watery . . bland!

djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear golden with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a corn malt and wheat grass. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter malt and bitter finish, not much going on with this one.

bhensonb (16110) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Hint of burnt rubber, along with grassy hop. The "skunk" was gone in moments. Medium gold color with a white head that filmed immediately. Sort of a barley malt sweetness, not thinking corn or rice at all. Unfortunately it is a little light on the bitter, and the finish does seem to have a hint of skunk. I’m a bit sensitized to that sort of aroma, because I used to work with mercaptans. Methyl mercaptan exploded all over me once. Whether it was light blemished or the skunk is natural, it is not a bad beer. Heck of a lot more character than many lagers.

MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006
Bottle. 5%. Sweet floral aroma, a little sewer. Yellow colour, unstable white head. Old hop flavour. Watery aftertaste.

Borup (16032) - Albertslund, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour almostb without head. Aroma and flavour of hops and rice.
