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

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 640ml bottle at a restaurant in Thailand. Yellow/straw colored body. Tiny white head which disappears almost immediately. Has a hint of rice flavor to it. I don’t know what they do to this one, but it gives you a major (C)hangover. :P

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Canned from 7/11. Lots of malt, nothing hoppy to be found. Exactly as expected, a sugarly malty beer with no complexity.

ElDesmadre (1475) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle, 6% ABV. Sweetish, malty, tasteful, with floral estery notes. It’s crisp and yet quite robust for a southern lager. A big surprise, this is actually a decent beer.

Dzhigga (110) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottled. Pale yellow color. Malty aroma. Malty taste with no hops. Another disappointing south beer.

Frode (176) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle 33 cl.
Pours clear yellow, with diminishing white head. Smells like a malty soda pop. A tastes similarly, moderate sweet and carbonated.

Cory (295) - , California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle. Light, a little bitter, short, clear, a little corn. Another cheap beer in Thailand that supposedly won a bunch of awards. I would like to know who gave these out and for what category exactly.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle, from Thailand. Pours a clear pale straw yellow body with a small fizzy white head that was very short lived. The nose is pretty huge on the rice and is quite thin and watery with just a little cereal grain. The flavor is just as weak and watery, some light rice and Cheerio like pale maltiness. Rather sweet, it’s completely lacking in hops. Finishes fairly clean though for the rice heavy malt bill. Light bodied, watery, fizzy prickly carbonation. All the usual hallmarks of the Pale Lager genre. Pretty boring stuff, but I’ve had a lot worse is the style.

ineedbeer (626) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 28, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 6.0% ABV version poured from a can in Thailand. Aroma has a light graininess with some corn character. Faint sulfur and light floral esters. Not really any hop character. Fairly clean without diacetyl. Pours a very clear pale yellow gold with a moderately thick,inch tall white head that slowly recedes. Light lacing and no legs. Flavor is rather bland with quite a bit of corn character and a light, sweet graininess. Medium low bitterness with no hop flavor. Bitterness in finish is a bit harsh. Low floral ester notes and light sulfur. No diacetyl. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Medium low astringency with low alcohol warmth. Overall it’s not a very enjoyable beer but it does the trick. It’s alright upfront, though a lot of adjunct but the finish is not very clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jorn69 (771) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2013
@ 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 (748) - 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.

Had a lot of those while I lived in Thailand. Taste is light but a bit boozy. A quite ok lager.
