1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fyraftensøl (33 cl. flaske).
Kedelig thailandsk øl med megen kulsyre, som dog er god til at slukke tørsten med eller drikke sig fuld i.
Hvis der er andre muligheder at vælge i mellem ville jeg aldrig vælge denne.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle poured a light golden in color with minimal head and lighter carbination. aroma is malt dominated, some grainy qualities, and some sweetness. interesting the label only lists ingredients as contains malted barley and nothing else. flavor is on the sweeter side, heavy malt, totally missing any hops, and the finish hits with sweet malted alcohol. just hard to get over the thick sweetened flavor, lingers on the taste buds for some time after taking a sip. very cold it was not totally terrible but don’t let it sit long and warm. should have seen it coming when there only claim to fame is a medal from 9 years ago.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33L bottle. Pale gold colour, strong malty aroma. dominant malty sweetness, bitterness too low and alcohol showing too strong. Not too bad but still only another average mass produced lager.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
04-Dec-07 (330-ml bottle: BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Sweet, adjuncty pale lager, is there really more that needs to be said? With the first sip, what jumped out the most was the sweetness. If a pale lager is at least dry, it’s more drinkable, even if the flavor is unpleasant, but this is very sweet. Some corn flavor there, but seems more like cheap rice adjuncts. Not hoppy at all, but there’s a slight bitterness in the finish that fails to aid in drinkability. Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but the adjuncty flavor and lasting sweetness are cause for having a toothbrush ready nearby. Sweet, corn and grain aroma is more pleasant than the flavor because the aroma fades off the olfactory much faster than the flavor off the palate. Medium-yellow in color with solid clarity, but the fizzy, white head fully dissipates within a few minutes. Pretty dreadful stuff, really. And as part of a Beers of the World 10-pack, I can only hope the Corporate beer buyers don’t force six-packs of Chang Beer down the throats of the individual BevMo’s. It would be a shame to waste shelf space on a product like this.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass- poured extremely thin yellow, bubbly head quickly disappeared, moderate carbonation. Aroma of yeast. Hits the mouth with a definate sweetness, very thin body, finish is non existant. I can understand why this is made in Thailand, where the climate is unbearable. If the temp was 100 with humidity, it would be refreshing; however, since it is not here, it’s on par with American microbrews.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle purchased from local liquor store. I was confused at first if i had Chang beer or Chang lage, but it turns out it’s the beer. I bet there is no difference between and both taste like watered down pissing fluid. Not at the level of other foreign countries beers where in a restaurant of their cuisine you request the beer popular among the rest. I know I said that very confusing but on this particular beer why waste my energy of thinking.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Oh goody another Pale Lager… This one pours a fizzy yellow gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized head. Aroma is fruity, sweet , kind of metallic and a touch grainy. Light bodied Pale Lager. The malts are fruity, corny and sweet. The hops are slightly spicy. Can I just insert a generic Pale Lager rating here; I would save everyone a lot of time. Not bad but nothing good either. I will note there is no sigh of green bottle skunkiness. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is sweet and artificial.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 Clear golden, moderate head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is grain, rice, very light. Medium bodied, lightly sweet with moderate carbonation. Not terrible, but far from great. By far the most interesting thing about this beer is that the bottle is really heavy.
