"With its attractive taste and a price that appealed to consumers at all levels, the response and success of Chang marked a new era and turned a new page for the Thai beer industry. In 1998 Beer Chang was awarded the “Gold Medallion” at the International Beer Competition in Australia in the category of “Lager, Unlimited Degree”.

Naapurikaupungin reissulta lähti mukaan Thaimaan tuliasia. Chang on vaalean kultainen ja omaa valkoisen vaahdon. Sen tuoksu huokuu makeutta ja mallasta. Jotenkin tästä tulee samanlainen vaikutelma, kun tuoksuttelee aamiaismuroja. Kellogs Rice Crispies, anyone? Jonkin verran makealta tämä tuntuu myös suussa. Lisäksi maku on jotenkin kukkainen ja hieman muovinen. Suutuntuma on hieman karkea. Ennemmin tätä joisi kuin montaa kotimaista vaaleaa lageria, mutta esim. 99 sentillä saatava Pistonhead-tölkki lähtee tämän hepun mukaan paljon helpommin kuin joku itämaan Chang.

Very pale yellow color and a disappearing head. Not much carbonation bubbles makes for a weak looking lager. A floral smell and butterscotch and jasmine are noticed in the aroma, kind of like a warm tea. The lager has a tangy lemon taste controlling the wheat base. Nicely paired hops cleans up after the tartness. The palate is springy refuting the lack of visible carbonation. Chang is a very well balanced and flavorful lager, though not widely available in America and if found ultimately not worth a premium price.

Lubiere (11394) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2011
A golden lager with a thick receding white head. In aroma, a soapy adjunct malt with chalky and grainy notes. In mouth, a sweet muddled rice adjunct with wet paper...blahh! Bottle from Piscator, BB Jan 2010, tasted with Probstk.

24.09.2011.0,33l Bottle. Ica Maxi Haugesund. Abv. 4,2%. Very paleyellow colour with white head. Aroma is weak and there is some kind of metallic flavour. Sweet with only notes of bitterness and real beer aromas.

COOL! A bomber of chang for only $3, right here in the Pgh area! It must be gov’t subsidized, heheh. I got this at chalet, and I’m starting to like this place more and more. Now i see its actually see its 21.65 oz wah?? Smell is a little veggie like older lager in a green bottle. Pour is a little hazy pale yellow. Initially good co2, but not overwhelming, sizz fades fast. Yep, not bad and it does not take much to make this go down. Decent lager effects without anything being terribly out of palce. The finish on each slug leaves something to be desired, but this may be due to age. On the label it says april 22, 2011 it would be best by. So I guess its not best, hehe. Now I tell ya, this is not a bad deal. Cheap, old pale lager at the same price as most any US beer but its from Thailand? How do they do it?

a somewhat hopeless and tasrteless drink which makes you feel like drinking water instead....total flop.

gunnar (6736) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale straw colored with a big white head, diminishes fast. Grainy malt aroma, clean, some citrus as well. Taste is moderate sweet malty, with that citrussy light hops towards the end. Not too bad.

jgb9348 (5179) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Pale golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of funky cardboard, skunky malt and a touch of alcohol. Light-bodied; Sharp malt flavour at first with a good alcohol note, some light cardboard and a very small hint of hops near the end. Aftertaste ends fairly nondeScript with a touch of malt and a watery finish. Overall, not such a great beer, but with the heat and the food, not a horrible choice. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from a 7-11 in central Bangkok, Thailand on my honeymoon on 23-August-2009 sampled later in the day.

Bottle - no glass around, drank out of bottle - refreshing sweet malty flavor, better than Singha

flying_pig (1209) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle (640ml), Export version:
Yeasty & skunky with some grain & citrus hops. Averager, not much of note in the aroma.
Clear straw with large foamy head that sinks to a finger sized whtie one.
Sweet with the flavour being made up of mostly corn & other adjuncts. A grassy hops taste & a bit of honey.
Really thin bodied & very smooth, almost watery. The carbonation is quite high as well but overall it’s not bad on the palate & it is easy enough to drink.

An excellent session beer. Not as good as the domestic version but a solid beer none the less.
