"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”.

Ratman197 (12692) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2011
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light spicy hops with a crisp finish.,

Chang pours slightly hazy and with a pale. Head persisted for a little longer than average. There’s barely any aroma present. What is there is not so great. Light sugary smells with a slightly off-putting funky malts (almost a little bit of rancid butter). Very much like the smell would indicate, this beer has very little taste. And what is there doesn’t much appeal to me- a little sugary but with that rancid butter malt taste just flirting on the edge of my palate. Blech. At least the mouthfeel is about right. Light carbonation, light consistency. Maybe a little much malt follow through actually. I wouldn’t drink a lot of these, even with the lightness. If you’re in Thailand and looking for a beer, I think Leo is your best bet.

This is a lager fit for purpose, i.e. consumption in the tropics. To be drunk ice cold so as to keep away the frightful cardboard aroma and insipid flavour.

Tastes like a poor mans pilsener, it also has a horrid malty aftertaste, was drinkable and washed down my red curry ok

Palme (3639) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
0.33l bottle @ Red Sun, Bergen. Pours a pale/peachy golden body with no head. Aroma is slightly citrus-fruity, watery malts but quite moderate all in all. Tastes surprisingly OK. Mild and gentle body and a medium+ carbonation. Quite low on flavor and bitterness, but hints of malts and some watery hops. Still, crisp and easy enough to drink.

gramity (1586) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Poured your standard pale golden for a lager. Aroma is of light malts and just "beer". The taste is sweet malts at first and fades into a bland aftertaste. Might be a touch of something fruity. Highly carbonated with a light mouthfeel. Nothing special but a good choice at the Thai restaurant!

Pale straw colour. Flavour is sweet at first and fades away into a rather stale tasting beer with low carbonation.

Cybercat (4745) - Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Pours a typical clear amber with not much head, but this may have been a result of the way it was poured. Scanty aroma is crisp and malty, not impressive. Flavor is malty and a little fruity, average but still palatable. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy. Overall, an average beer, but still drinkable. This one is better for a party or as an accompaniment to dinner rather than by itself.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up wet grains, rice, and a touch of honey with light grassy accents.. not much going on, but it was non-offensive. The flavor found the same grains at the core with a more assertive red rice presence.. tacky on the back with a pinch of honey.. somewhat bright impression.. very dry finish. Light-bodied with a scratchy feel and tight carbonation on the palate.. not a bad drinker at all.
