This beer was a very pleasant surprise in that it was a far cry better than most other ASian beers. Although it had little nose, this wa an improvement over the normally grainy-skunk nose found in many of its countrymen. Mouthfeel was much more full than most, taste was slightly malty and earthy and the finish fairly long and somewhat sweet.
Probably my favorite Asian beer to date.

The Chang Export has absolutely nothing in common with the Thai version I am used to. This verison is 5% whereas in Thailand it is closer to 7%. Since this is a rating for the export version, I will do that. Found this completely randomly at a Chicago mini-market. Pours a fairly dark gold with a medium, white head that quickly fades. Aroma is grass, corn, rice, and a little skunk (probably from the long haul from Thailand). Taste is watery, metallic, sweet, and malty. Very mediocre but reminds me of Thailand.

Pours a deep, flat, slightly lively corn yellow with a nose of exotic vegetables, light fruits, and corn. Tastes like noodles and corn malt with a bitter finish. Watery mouthfeel. Blah.

Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of skunk, straw, grass, and formaldehyde. Flavor was nasty, medicinal, metallic with no body, no hops, just a slight grainy taste.

12 oz. bottle, Thai restaurant. Pous a golden color with a light white head. Pretty much your standard import lager, aroma and flavor of malts, smooth and not very hoppy. Light bodied, finished easy. Nothing remarkable.

I like the style of this beer. Had bottle and can. Thai cans are terrible, stick to the bottle. Its not 5% in thailand its 6.4% but varies. Impossible to rate because it changes. Good cold. Good cheap beer.
