1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
light yellow with no head, smell is light alcohol, some corn. taste is a real corn taste, not sugary sweet but off-sweet, small but harsh bitterness, unpleasant lasting taste. this one doesnt have a plato amount but the can says its 5%, seems overly carbonated in the macro lager style. not good but very cheap, however probably more like 4.5% or less alcohol as most tsingtao that ive had claims to be. annoying
A couple of bottles in the Canton restaurant in Soho. I have drunk this many times before, but this is the first since rating commenced. I was pretty blasted at this point, but I know that it perfectly complemented the superb food. It's s macro lager with malt, some hops and a gentle rice flavour that I think adds to the mouthfeel. It's one that I will always happily have in a Chinese restaurant. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle. Green. Pours light and clear yellow. Nose is a bit skunky. Flavors of acid water with a hint of hops. Drinkable only with spicy Asian food. wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
So, not the greatest start beerwise to the new year; the only new rate in a 4-pack of world lagers that my generous and thoughtful (but beer-unaware) boss gave me for Christmas. It pours clear yellow with a swiftly-vanishing white head and an aggressive fizz. Sweetcorn very much to the fore in the aroma and taste. There's a hint of honey malt and maybe a vague wisp of grassy hop but the sweetcorn really does overwhelm it. Too sweet and too corny; an unpleasant brew. Still grateful for the unexpected gift though. knight65 (132) - Dordrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2018
A watery pilsner with a light herbal taste. Somewhere between sweet and bitter. I drank it from a bottle in a Chinese restaurant. axl (1111) - Lund, SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2017
330ml bottle, 4,7% ABV Swedish label. Clear pale golden with white head. Aroma is slightly fruity with grains, yeast and light hops distinguishable. Taste is fruity and slightly buttery with grains, light fruity yeast and floral hops. Light mouthfeel, light carbonation and very light fruity aftertaste. Not very impressive, but also not really that had - like a lot of the global giants.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Rating taken from my 1001 Beers book where
I’ve scrawled “refreshing, but bland”. I guess I was referring to the dryness that comes with a lot of Asian beers. It is indeed a very, very light beer. smilesdaily () - Myrtle creek, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2017
Love this beer. Wish it was easily sold in all stores. It's hard to find. I can only find it in Asian restaurants. jooilakon (318) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Pint at North China restaurant, Acton. Aromas are malts with citrus notes. Clear golden body and small white head. Taste is crisp malts with a citrus finish. OK lager. puboflyons (3530) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2017
From the green bottle with no date that I can see. Bright, yellow, heady pour with excellent clarity and active carbonation. Slightly skunked aroma due to the green bottle but when I put that aside I get a toasted bread and grassy character. The texture is light and fresh. The taste is grainy, sweet, with a nice clean, crisp hop sensation. What more can you ask for in a beer of this style? lager4thewin (2) - Hereford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2017 does not count
Very nice beer, different from the rest! Has a very nice taste and something that you can drink large quantities of with reduced side effects compared to other lager! Chinese beer is great and this is a real tribute to it, you can really taste the rice in it with a tad of sweetness.
