Hateball16 (105) - - FEB 9, 2013
Appearance: Golden, clear, thin creamy white head which doesn’t last. Aroma: Baguette, green apple, slightly floral. Flavour: Toasted white rye, apple peels, mild citrus. Mouthfeel: Snappy carbonation hits the middle of the tongue, followed by a malty centre, and a moderately short, dry and bitter finish. Overall: Way better than the usual Asian lagers, has some complexity and packs a bit of a punch.

KyotoLefty (6504) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 30, 2014
Can. Nose close to zero--like a beer of my American youth--a touch of lemon and grains. Sweet malt flavor, light lemon hops, corny. Not so terrible.

Morboso (56) - ECUADOR - SEP 30, 2014
Nothing noteable in the aroma, thin body, mineral water taste with a little bitterness and a little linger taste which makes it passable as hot day chugger.

piotrek8080 (40) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Light aroma of malts. Forced 0,5 cm head. Pale golden color. In taste low malty, watery and some off flavor. Medium carbonation. After a while foam disappeared completely.

ElDesmadre (1585) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle. Has that cakey, malty aroma of a Munich helles but unfortunately the taste is sweetish, watery and practically devoid of any bitterness. The stronger version of Chang provided a significantly more pleasant sensory experience.

rotaman14 (80) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Sehr blasse Farbe, fast keine Schaumkrone. Angenehmes Aroma von Reis, ein bisschen Karamell. Zu süßlicher Geschmack. Nicht schlecht, aber auch nichts besonderes.

Mouldy aroma. Clear, yellow colour. Little to no head. Medium to very sweet. Not a good beer.

ben4321 (3948) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Location: Bottle at a SriPraPhai, 8/5/14

Aroma: It has a light nose of sweet grains/malts/cereal mostly, very sweet aroma overall
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-yellow color with a small white head
Flavor: The flavor, much like the nose, leans very sweet for the style, no bitterness at all
Palate: The body is light and a little watery, but less so than other examples of this style
Overall Impression: I’m surprised I haven’t rated this before, I have certainly and reluctantly washed down Thai food with it in the past. As for the beer, it’s a fairly typical adjunct lager, but sweeter than your average Bud.

Bedni (99) - POLAND - SEP 10, 2014
low bitterness, poor head, low carbonation, but it does not feel like 99% water and 1% piss like many polish lagers. It kinda smells nice like delicate rice or something, its mild so its very drinkable, I think in a hot day it could taste even better. Not bad mr Chang :)
