A note for the stats only. Very hard to pick the difference b/w this and the standard release. Holiday beer and nothing more.

Big bottle bought in Bangkok. Poured a clear light yellow. Aroma of weak malts and straw. Taste was smooth enough. Not to strong or exciting but a decent lager.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An enjoyable Lager especially with the spicy food available in Thailand. It lacks a more unique flavor and aroma and sometimes comes across a bit blend. Bought the beer in a large bottle from a local shop. Beers in Thailand are usually served just above freezing point and that is definitely how this one should be enjoyed. Extra note: don’t forget to tell Thai staff in local pubs NOT to add Ice to your Beer (as seems to be the custom in Thailand)

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden in colour with a very thin pure white head. Aroma of pale malt, metal and a hint of very light citrus. Light-bodied; Small amount of rice and metal up front with largely a malty and slightly sweet finish with nothing else left to the imagination. Aftertaste shows some bitterness and a bit of a metallic twang, but a fairly light and drinkable beer compared to some of these other thai lagers. I sampled this 620 mL bottle purchased from Green Market in Karon Beach, Phuket, Thailand on 30-June-2014 for THB50,00 sampled a few minutes later in my hotel room here in Phuket.

Random store, Bangkok.
Pale golden, clear appearance with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of malt and grass, some sweet corn. Empty, fizzy body with a grassy aftertaste. Worst than the normal one.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from a night shop in Bangkok. Got to drink "something" during the curfew :-) Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a short lived frothy white head and lots of CO2. The aroma is earthy malt. The flavour is light bitter with a watery malt light hop palate. Light bodied with frothy carbonation. I’m amazed that a brewery of this size can produce such watered down, flavourless rubbish. It’s not hard to produce something with flavour, so why not do it? I’d like t think that the days are numbered for beers like this. Surely when people taste something better they will stop buying it ??

Compared with the other Chang beers maybe this one get a real improvement. The aroma has some malt notes, and a slight citric tones by the hops. The body is light, the flavor is still too sweet but the balance between malt and hops is clearly better, and the amount of alcohol make it more enjoyable.

Normal golden lager color, a white head with some retention. Smell is mainly grassy hops and some grain. Taste is grain and hops.Bland but not awful. Decent carbonation. Overall a decent lager, goes well with Thai food. Go figure....
