Good value for a big bottle of lager. Quite nice with Chinese food.
Alc 4.7%

The Official blurb.
Tsingtao Beer has a pleasant aroma and a well-balanced taste. Its high-malty flavor and well-hopped character make Tsingtao a refreshing complement to any Chinese meal.

Lovely stuff... it is actually brewed using rice and spring water along with the Hops and Barley... I first had this in Shanghai, so it is totally original, unlike other foregin beers that you find dont exist when you go to that certain country...
#2
Very nice beer but has a strange taste compared to European and US beers. It's the rice that gives it the unique taste but I wouldn't describe it as malty.

Deckard orders some of this in Blade Runner :-D

Deckard buys himself a bottle of Tsing Tao in a bar in the film

It is a large bottle of clear liquid and he drinks it straight. I have not heard of anything real that matches that description. However, there is a Tsing Tao beer (as per the picture) and also Tsing Tao red and white wines.

These drinks derive their names from the Tsing Tao region in Northern China where they are made. It would be perfectly reasonable to guess there could be a distillery in the region, also producing a spirit with that name. And the most likely spirit is of course Vodka, as it can be made from just about any type of grain or vegetable matter.

Asahi (500ml) & Kingfisher Premium Lager( 500ml) should be also for £1 !

Asahi is an excellent beer - if you are lucky enough to find it on draft anywhere, give it a go as it's great.

#22
Tsingtao beer is the best beer in China as long as it originated from Tsingtao.
#23
The brewery was set-up by the Germans when they 'ran' Tsingtao...
Surfing HDUK really is an education !
...and the beer itself in definately in my top ten !
#24
Went to the town Tsingtao, China a few years ago on a business trip.

They upped the price of this stuff from 14pence to 17pence A LITRE !!!!

Get in, can't remember much after the first day !!!!

One of the most recent players in Taiwan's beer market is Tsingtao Beer from China. Tsingtao was a hit, grabbing 8 percent of the market in 2002, as soon as it landed in Taiwan. Chen Wen-chieh, who runs a small restaurant in Taipei's suburb of Jingmei, believes that Tsingtao's popularity rests on its reputation of being China's first and best beer. "All my guests wanted to give it a try and I couldn't get enough crates from the supplier," he says. "These sales were the result of curiosity." Chen grew up around beer because his father worked for the Taiwan Tobacco & Wine Monopoly Bureau (now TTL), and now his refrigerator is always fully stocked. He says Tsingtao is "good, but Taiwan Beer suits me better."

Whether out of hype or the beer's reputation, Tsingtao's rise did not last long. Rumors circulated that mainland beer contained methanol, which causes catastrophic health problems with continued consumption. Yet, it was not just gossip that put a halt to ever-increasing sales for Tsingtao. Without advertising, few brands can compete in Taiwan. According to the Statute Governing the Relations Between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, mainland companies that do not produce their goods in Taiwan are prohibited from advertising on TV and radio. To deal with the regulation, Tsingtao Beer is working with a Taiwanese beverage manufacturer to set up a brewery in Pingtung County, and production is scheduled to begin in a few months. The projected annual production of the brewery is 50,000 tons, but it will be able to put out 150,000 tons if need be.

Agree completely, the ASAHI I used to have in Singapore was awesome, but the bottles you get here are 'brewed in the UK' and taste crap. Will not touch any of these beers unless they are imported.
#27
**** in it aye, should give a subtle nutty flavour then.

Great beer, I will pop to local Morrison.
#39
well,i guess ill have to say something as a chinese here...
those Tsingtao exports have completely different quality compared to what they sell in mainland China...It's much better,so don't compared the price in here with China. And I think all the imports food have been strictly tested in the UK custom,therefore no methanol=.=!
my opinion is at this price,ill store as much as I can....lol

Damn got a few from waitrose for £1.50.. I like my Qinqdao...
