Not sure when this was retired - I just picked up a single from Corks & Kegs in Richmond. It’s definitely bottled as Chang Beer. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn chips (and shit, now I have a Fritos craving). Flavor is pretty bad... envelope glue, the mint kinda even, along with corn, rice water, and paper. I can’t give this above an overall 1 - the flavor of this is beer is one of the worst I’ve had in my mouth. alexsdad06 (11389) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle sample from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, grass, skunky notes, just not good. Bcoble003 (292) - Jblm, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Drank way to many Samuel Adams. But this one comes from sentimental value. So thank you Cpt. Julian I greatly appreciate it.

Pale yellow pour with quick, hitter foam. Sweet cereal malt in the nose with a little grassy hops. The body is light and fizz moderate. The balance tips toward the hops and the finish is clean. There is a little lingering sweetness.

Review: 330 ml Bottle of Chang Beer Export: ABV: 5%
With a nice logo of two big elephants facing each other on its label, Chang is the Thai word for elephant, an important animal in Thailand as a symbol of both power and peace.
On pour we get a nice clear yellow colour, with a big frothy white head that is decent enough, and which settles down but maintains. A lot of carbonation, very bubbly and lively
No real lacing.
Overall, not a bad looking beer
On the nose I get an initial sweet piercing smell of lemon but overall not so strong, very faint.
A beery smell, sweet grains, hay, lemon, malts, all good on the nose, but as I mentioned not so strong.....
Taste is bittersweet, soft, clean and relatively easy to drink. Some light grains, but not enough to really get excited about.
Bit of an aftertaste, all bitter. Stringent sweet malts
Too sweet for my liking, and the tastes are not well balanced.
Not a great beer, very little to actually taste. Ok it is a little sessionable, but overall it is not really enjoyable. Bland. I am not a fan.
Apparently the home brew version is meant to be better than the export version, brewed with rice rather than malt, and is a 6.4% strength lager. Perhaps another inspection is needed, on a beach in Pattaya supping an ice cold beer enjoying the sun......

Ljus och klar. Väldigt snäll och anonym smak. Lite bröd, mycket lätt beska och inte så mycket mer
