Tsingtao 3

I've only had it once in a Chinese restaurant on a Bike trip out West. It was an okay beer if memory serves. I may order it again if I can find it, just because it is fun to say. However, if the item-description is correct and this is in fact a German beer, then it does not hold up to most German brews.

It's good. . .but it's a great beer to start a conversation with a smart girl who you want to impress with your travel stories. . .

It's a better conversation piece than a beer. Try it just to say you've tried it then move on. . .

This is the nastiest crap I have ever come across. It kind of reminds me of that taste you get when you throw up in your mouth. I feel like i'm taking crazy pills. How could this piss in a bottle get such good reviews????

In my opinion, Tsingtao is nothing mind-blowing, though it is a solid good-quality beer. I think that the reason I do not like it more is because it is a pilsner. It is crisp and refreshing, but I am just not big on pilsners. As far as Asian beers go, I prefer Asahi (which is Japanese).

German lager, made in China. Better than any of the American big brewery lagers, but no better than average as a beer.

Comparible to American macro-brewed products like Bud, etc. but with a little more character. A good enough choice with Chinese food if the choices are limited. A bit watery.

This is a malty beer that the Germans transplanted into China. Tsingtao was once a German colony before WWI.

Every time i have chinese food, i have tsingtao, the two are inseparable for me. The beer is a fair example of a germanesque lager, nothing extra-ordinary, but well made nontheless.

I love this stuff. Very well balanced taste that goes great with food. Has a slightly sticky, ricey sweetness that I really enjoy. Very distinct and characteristic brew. Where's the pepper steak?

A good clean, crisp tase with no after taste. Served at lots of real deal Chinese restaurants in the San Gabriel Valley section of Southern California (which has a considerable mainland Chinese population).

Best of the chinese beers, has a nice malty sweetness and not over carbonated. This beer was fist brewed by Germans living in China, the style is that of a pilsner. The alcohol level is that of a light beer but it's not a light beer so it loses a star.

The beer is okay. But if you ever get to Tsingtao take the tour of the brewery. It's incredible, the highlight being watching 156 yr old Chinese delivery men strap fifty cases to their rickety little bikes and ride away.....

The only reason I ever drink this garbage is because I love ordering it. When this Chinese beer is pronounced correctly you're saying something nasty in Spanish.

As much as I love the Northern European beers (Grolsh, Urquell, and Stella), and as much as I love the American specialities (like Sam Adams, and Sierra Nevada), I've got to hand it to the Chinese that they did things right with Tsingtao

Like Dos Equis, this beer is based on a German recipe (German immigrants usually build a church and a brewery as their first contirubition to a new land) For me, it comes out as a winner. Anybody know the *correct* pronunciation? Tsing-tao, Ching-doa?
