Light, crisp, and refreshing. Nah, I'm just kidding. Typical adjunct lager action - low in flavor and aroma, watery feel. Take a pass.

A German lager originally brewed by German colonists in China. Tastes like a German lager.

Just your standard lager you find everywhere. Every country has their own lager. Drink it cold as it can be and preferably in hot weather eating some hot food. Once it gets warm it just gets unpleasant.

This beer was undrinkable to me. Recommended by a friend in Hong Kong, took one sip and that was quite enough.

맛으로는 이만한 맥주가 없다.
거품은 전혀 엄슴.
일본 맥주가 아주 일본스럽다면,
중국의 칭다오는 정통 유럽주 느낌.
아시아 최고 맥주중 하나.

Not bad for a lager that comes in a green bottle - as long as you don't get a skunky one. Works well washing down an array of chinese food. Light in body and with a little grassy note.

BBD 8/5/15. Clear golden pour. Normal head volume, lacing and slightly below normal retention.

Very light nose, even for a lager, just a hint of yeast and malt.

Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and just the right amount for a nice prickly finish.

For a lager, the flavor profile is reasonably intense, complexity is lacking but the balance is superb. It begins with a light grainy biscuit that is very subtly sweet. The middle brings an equally subtle mild hop bitterness that is perfectly balanced. Hop flavor is present only as a hint that it's there. The finish is crisp, clean and leaves you with a fading mild bitterness with a grainy character. No skunking was evidenced. Possibly the best starter beer since it never really assaults the taste buds, but exposes all the classic lager elements in muted fashion.

L: Brilliant straw with a quickly dissipating 2” white foam cap.
S: Grainy nose with an earthy background and a slight hint of skunk.
T: Grain with traces of apples and adjuncts. Slightly sweet beginning with a dry finish.
F: Clean, crisp, light bodied, effervescent.
O: A standard Chinese restaurant beer.

Crisp taste, nice and refreshing.
Upon pouring the head doesn't stay to long, carbonation is alright though.
Taste is light and smooth with a fruity and nutty aroma, very special. Perfect with Chinese cuisine.
Goes down nicely with a smooth aftertaste.
Overall a nice Asian beer.

Skunky beer. Why drink this beer when you got so many AAL that are more trustworthy.

Poured from a bottle. Golden and clear with very little head. Head is white. Aroma is a little hop and grain. Taste is a slight hop, and I get a lot of alcohol. Taste is sharp. Not a bad texture. Overall not great.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- large skunky presence.
Appearance- A clear golden yellow color with a small white head
Taste- Has a hoppy flavor but there is that skunky bite to it.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation
Overall- it is an average beer that goes well with food.

Nothing too bad, your average good looking dinner beer but the rice gave a bad taste in the mouth after drinking.
