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

@ Lanta Casuarina Beach Resort, Koh Lanta, Thailand. Flaska från lokalt hak. Ganska söt och maltig doft och smak. Alldeles för liten beska och en kort eftersmak.

GoufCustom (823) - HONG KONG - NOV 11, 2013


500 ml can bought at 7-Eleven in Metropolis Plaza, Sheung Shui.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Very thin head and white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Minimal lacing and some notable carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, rice, grains, corn syrup, grape juice, light lemon and thin grass; Medium sweet taste of thin malt, with strong rice, light bread, strong thinner / paint stripper, corn syrup, very light wet cardboard, light citrus and grass; Mid to light body, slightly slick palate; Taste profile is typical malt likka - strong solvent taste with obvious burning sensations, plus strong rice and corn syrups - malt taste faded into background, how nice! Booze is all about fusel, and pretty alcoholic as well. Blah! Hoppiness is light lemon and grass in nose and taste, and slight bitterness. Burning fusel finish; Slightly dry after taste, caustic and a boozy to mouth.

Comments: Having the other two Changs (Beer and Draught) previously, I didn’t hold much hope for this one and that’s exactly it - typical malt likka with loads of adjuncts and solvents. Should be popular if it was exported to America. Not for me, drain pours after half a glass.

flying_pig (941) - SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2013
640ml bottle in Koh Phangnan, Thailand (100 Baht):
Light grain and some faint hops on the nose with some very light skunk. There is some sweetness and corn with a faint hint of alcohol as well.
Clear, golden straw colour with a thin, 1cm head that settles as a patchy looking lacing after thirty seconds.
Lager malts with some grain, a few adjuncts and a very small taste of alcohol that was to be epected going by the abv. on the bottle. There is a hint of hops and a semi-bitterness with some grassy flavours and a bit of citrus.
Smooth for the most part bar the touches of grain. There is some alcohol but it is better hidden than I expected. Medium carbonation compliments a light body and there is a slight citrus tang together with a crisp and very clean feel.

A solid Asian beer and my go-to beer anytime I am in the region as it is so much better than the export version that makes its way to Europe and the UK. It’s not outstanding by any means but it is a good beer with a nice alcohol kick that soon catches up on you once you’ve had a few.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Day five of the malt liquor excursion through the jungles of Bangkok. Big bottle at a bar, didn’t realize it was a malt liquor but now it makes perfect sense because seriously this was the eggiest beer I’ve ever had. Some green apple too in the aroma and flavour was sweet malt, alcohol, and rotten egg. Absolutely disgusting, I miss Cambodian beers.

CPH2200 (288) - DENMARK - JUL 24, 2013
640 ml bottle 6.4%. This is a typical asian pale lager style, why anyone would label this a malt liquer is beyond me. Not a bad asian lager as it is, alcohol is noticeable but otherwise the high abv comes as a surprise (unless you read it on the label). Really not any worse than singha, tiger et al. and certainly better than the watered down 5.0% export version.

Fairly good lager, nothing special. Perfect for a warm and humid night. Thailands pride, it said. Not sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
