3/5  rDev +19.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Crystal-clear golden in color, with a moderate white head, which soon collapses to a fine ring around the glass walls. The carbonation rises slowly in small streams.

Aroma: Mild skunk, as expected, due to the green glass bottle, with a modest pale malt aroma, and a mild herbal hop presence.

Taste: Pale malt and mild hops at the open; as the taste advances, the malt presence diminishes and the hops rise to ascendancy. The hops linger on mildly in the aftertaste.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, pleasantly soft.

Drinkability/notes: A well-crafted example of the style. That being said, this beer is not much different from a Budweiser. In all, a bit bland.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce green glass bottle with a pop-off crown, served in a standard pint tap glass.

Tsingtao Pure Draft Beer has a thick, spongy, white head and a clear, bubbly, straw appearance, with minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, light, barley malt, and the flavor is of the same, with a perfectly placed hop balance at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Tsingtao Pure Draft Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and drinkable. Overall, this is excellent, and I love it.

This is one of the worst beers I've ever had. Pours a light yellow--looks like a bright bud light cut with a little water. Thin bubbly head that immediately disappears. No lacing or retention. Smells like metal, artificial lemons, and straw. Tastes the same way. overcarbonated. This is very much in the style of an american adjunct but even worse than the usual examples.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy light tan head settles to tiny wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is extremely skunky with some grainy aromas that take a back seat. As the beer warms the skunky aroma dissipates somewhat. Taste is quite watery with some grain and uncooked pasta flavors. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a poor beer that is pretty undrinkable.
