0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours pale golden with a small head. Both aromas and taste are sweet, artificial with notes of grain and malts. All-in-all a pretty bad attempt on a lager beer.

500ml can from 7-11 @ Koh Lipe, Thailand. Foam disappears fast. What for is so many different changs? This is much more milder at all sections than normal chang.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml can. WH. 26707/13.
I’m not sure if that’s "Canned on" or "Best by" date. From Thailand. Thanks MPEH!
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head.
Green apple, mild mushroom and malt in a weak aroma.
The flavour is very weak. Some malt... maybe? Really weak flavour. Extremely easy to drink but I guess that’s the point... No flavour to disturb the enjoyment.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Chang Draught, on tap in Dubliners in Bangkok watching the rugby. Utterly forgettable. Actually maybe a bit cleaner (read tasteless) than the basic Chang, less of the Chang tang so I guess in this case tasteless is good...

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
500 ml silver can bought at 7-Eleven in Metropolis Plaza, Sheung Shui.
One and half finger head and soapy white foam which lasts for 40 seconds; Slight sticky lacing and notable small carbonation; Very faint smell of thin malt, with trace of rice, corn and nothing else; Low to minimal sweet taste of malt hint, with barely detectable notes of grains, soggy bread, and grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is 100% beer-water, malt taste is negligible, so are the adjuncts and hops. Nearly tasteless, like a glass of water; Hoppiness has nothing to write about as citrus and hops nose taste and feel are next to none; Wet after taste, very easy to mouth just like water.
Comments: The moment I tasted it, the words ‘crappy happoshu’ instantly came to mind. Better, it has the feel of those tasteless “Drafts” by Abashiri, only slightly tastier. Don’t believe a word about ‘Draught’ or ‘Export’ being slapped onto the can. A fine example of drain pours, this is fxxking shit!

Big bottle at a bar, did the ol’ head-to-head taste test with the Chang Export, liked that more but this certainly had more flavour, just not the kind I care to come across. If your grandma was a big fan of eggs and had bowel problems, and for some reason the smell gives you good memories of childhood, then you’ll probably like this one. Metal too. Not as bad as the Classic, at least. Um what else. Carbonation is pretty low in these Changs, I’ve noticed.

500ml can. This a milder version than the normal 6.4 abv Chang. Watery and does not really taste of anything. So thats better than a bad tasting beer.Stick to the normal Chang if you are in Thailand.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ok, whatever. I like this one better than the Chang classic, probably because it mimics that smootb draught taste, don’t laugh. Its yellow, golden with no head to remember. It smells like dad’s beer fridge on the pour but turns grainy and sweet, but has a refreshing bite and good bitter finish. A refreshing beer if drank cold.

Had a few of these throughout South East Asia. Go-to cheap beer alongside Tiger. Tastes better than budweiser. Light hoppy and malt aroma and taste, watery body.
