Bottled, 330ml at Siam House, Thai Restaurant, Banbury. Yellow straw with white head. Surprised that I hadn’t rated this one before. Malty, dryish pale lager, was ok with a blooming hot Prawn with fresh chilli dish, in fact several cold ones were consumed.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours almost colorless golden with a low, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is acidic malts. Flavor is tap water with a hint of malts and low carbonation. I wouldn’t choose this beer for the hottest of weathers.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from local supermarket. 4,2 % abv, but label clearly says Chang Beer, not Chang Light. Color is very very pale yellow/orange, maybe the palest beer I’ve ever seen. Small head. Surprisingly fruity aroma initially, with a clear raspberry aroma in the nose! The taste/flavor, however, is pretty much nonexistant. Paper dominates the flavor at the beginning, then comes a hint of caramel & malt. The finish is in every way like drinking slightly carbonated water. Overall: If we forget the paper flavor, there’s nothing wrong with this beer - it just doesn’t have any flavor, taste or mouthfeel. I guess it’s refreshing if you’re lying on the beach in Thailand! Just remember to swallow quickly! (Unless you happen to enjoy the taste of paper ;)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Typical pale lager. Mild taste with malt and grain. Quite refreshing yet watery. Thin head on top. Overall it has a slightly sweet malty taste which is is sort of hidden behind a watery front. Refreshing but generic.
