In 1998 Beer Chang was awarded the “Gold Medallion” at the International Beer Competition in Australia in the category of “Lager, Unlimited Degree”.

(Bottle) Much darker than most pale lagers. Some hops and some bitterness, not very crisp though. Richer and slightly maltier, with a bit of caramel taste. Little complexity, but not bland, and fewer objectionable qualities than most macro-brews. I don’t notice much detriment to the rice, unlike many other macro brews that are brewed with rice. Actually, my main complaint about this is that it’s a bit too heavy. Overall, however, I think the other brewers are probably being a bit prejudiced against macros in their ratings...I think this one could contend with some better beers.

Not a bad lager, is smooth and refreshes the palate. Aroma of typical indian lagers with more rice rice maybe?... Taste is simple and plain, but doesn’t hurt the beer. some better, alot worse!

they do sponsor the Toffees you know!?!"

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a golden beer with an average white head. Lively carbonation. The nose is sweet, oily with hints of wet cardboard, rosemary, soap and rice. Watery, sweet and rather oily. Hints of biscuit and lime. Surprising alcoholic finish with hints of grass, litchi and butter.

While not painful to drink, Chang beer is one of those few pale lagers that wish to be compared to an american light.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2008
From the brown bottle this poured a pale yellow body with lots of lively bubbling and a modest yet sustained head. The aroma is sugary sweet with a touch of pale malt. No hops. Same with the flavor, hopless and sweet with an oily palate to boot. It’s drinkable, but then, so are a lot of beers that I won’t be having again.

A find in a Mexican supermarket. Quickly thinning soft white head on light gold. Light bread with a hint of grass in aroma. Flavour starts sweet, then crackers and grass before a vegetable finish. Can finish it but would not want another. Makes me appreciate the Sol here.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Hmm. Pours typical of a Pilsner and the like. Clear gold thats actually quite sharp, really. Its not ugly by any means. I think theres quite a bit of carbonation actually. Plenty of bubbles rising to the surface and that carbonation bite on the tongue. Quite nice feeling. Not too much to the aroma unfortunately. The taste is quite common however. No distinction that I can tell. I had a lot to say about this beer but I do not rate it very high. However I was not at all disappointed in it.
