I tried a bottle of Chang at a Thai restaurant in DC. The restaurant was top notch, but this beer was so sad I couldn't even finish it.

It poured a very generic looking pilsner style lager. Lightly golden but no head or lacing to speak of. The smell was poor as well.. wet vegetables mixed with a sweetness. And there was more of that sweetness in the taste.. much more. It was overly sweet but did have a slight hop presence towards the end.

Mouthfeel was watery, thin and it did not help the beers drinkability.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

330ml bottle, poured into oversized Tripel Karmeliet tulip. A: Pale golden, initial
large head which faded so fast I thought there was somewhere else it had to be,
no lacing, clear, looked flat. A: Faint malt, sugar beet. T: Over did the sweetness to
the point of being unbalanced, hints of rubber. M: Slightly heavy body, thick texture,
no carbonation to speak of. O: Not great, there are better lagers in Asia, drink if
free but if choose something else if it’s available.

Found it in Greece. Bottle 0,33l

A - Two finger creamy white foam, quickly vanished with some traces left in next few minutes. Golden color, clear with low carbonation.
S - Really bad pale malt, with some adjuncts and citrus notes.
T/M - It is refreshing. Huge lemon taste, it is almost half between from Lager to Radler. Medium to high carbonation, very low bitterness.

O - Citrus pale lager
