COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Domestic product.
Chang was made with the vision of the top executives to expand the beer market with a Thai taste albeit with international quality, to give the consumers an alternative with the fervent belief in the brewing and production capability of the Thais. With its attractive taste and a price that appealed to consumers at all levels, the response and success of Beer 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”. Since then, Beer Chang has become known as “the international Gold Medallion winner beer of Thailand”. Note: alcohol content may vary

Very pale yellow and clear. White foam. Lager aroma. Very light and sweet. No bitterness at all. Fair carbonation. Bad.

euniceradio (71) - Colton, California, USA - APR 3, 2015
Pours clear yellow. Head dissipates immediately. Aroma of wet grain and dried corn. Tastes like silage with a sweet backbone. Finish is dry. Medium light mouthfeel. Similar to any light domestic, nothing worthy of note.

Moebbels (420) - FINLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Clear pale yellow body and minimal head. Nose has malts and hay-like aromas. Taste is sweetish with a mildly dry finish and a metallic note. Carbonation and mouthfeel are medium. Basic light lager,, nothing special.

Fisler (131) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Eines der besseren Thaibiere und mit 6% auch geschmacklich etwas erwachsener und weniger wässrig. Malzig-bitter im Geschmack, leichter Reis-Nachgeschmack (aber immerhin überhaupt mal einer).

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Can, 6.0%. The good old sour grain aroma. Clear golden colour. Small frothy chalk white head. The flavour is surprisingly malty and does not have much of the graininess of the aroma. Also has a little alcohol punch, but no more than expected for the ABV. Decent for the style.

Bamsen78 (3955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Can, 6.0% @ The Unholy Trinity Meets Again, Sønderborg. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and inferiror malt, with notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of malt and yeast, with some hoppy notes and touches of fart. Acetic hints, especially in the aftertaste, which is otherwise estery and slightly bitter. Drinkable but just that.

martin00sr (1259) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Clear, light golden. Fluffy white head. Grainy cereal aroma. Malty flavour with citric bitterness. Rather watery but with the bitterness turning stronger - and more rough - later on.

ebarnes (260) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2015
500ml can in Bangkok. Had a little more the Draught. Pours yellow and fizzy. Not much aroma. Good beer for the Bangkok heat.

YantarCoast (377) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Tried way too many times in Phuket. Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, rice and light hops. Sweet taste. Refreshing in the Thai heat, but that’s about it. ABV seems to vary despite always being labelled as 6.4%.

Bought a can on Langkawi, Malaysia. Decent lager, little bit sweet but not to sweet.
