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)
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: 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.

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
