Nice beer for what I prefer.

i like pale ale, non-hoppy beers, and Tsingtao fits the bill for me. The presentation isn't that great, being pale yellow with little head, but I've come to expect that with most of the beers that I prefer.

The smell is very inoffensive, and not over-powering of anything, with a slight yeast and fruit smell.

The taste is very inoffensive, not as fruity as you would expect from the smell. It leaves very little aftertaste and does not overpower your tastebuds. It goes very well with seafood or other light or delicate foods that could have flavors easily overwhelmed. A good choice for a Teppenyaki type restaurant.

The mouthfeel is the one thing I don't like about all "thin" beers, and it is no different with Tsingtao. The same thing that make the beer look pale and taste inoffensive, also make it feel as though you are drinking water. THere is no real substance to the beer. there is no real way around this except to drink a darker brew.

A likley thumbs up if you like pale brews, but not if you enjoy stouts.
