115/515)  Home:  Tsingtao by Tsingtao Brewing of China:  *1/2;  a standard lager;  tastes a bit grassy; 

A former colleague once explained that the Germans chose Tsingtao as a port on the Chinese coast owing to the presence of a spring nearby.  It was a book about the history of herion, of all things, where I found the most concise summary of the scramble for colonial ports in China, not to mention a great precis on the Opium Wars.
