A pretty poor Thai beer. Clear yellow with no head, and nose is metallic grain. Taste is grains with slight hops on the end, but an odd alcoholic taste like turpentine (maybe it's the rumored formaldehyde?). Mouthfeel is thin, and drinkability is lacking. The best part of this beer is the logo.

Had a bottle poured into a pint glass as an accompaniment to a really good green curry. I am fairly familiar with this beer from years of eating in Thai restaurants but usually choose Singha. Here Chang gets the formal review treatment. A pale straw yellow beer, maybe just veering towards lemon, with minimal white foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is primarily cooked vegetable DMS, old malt, and a nondescript spice note ... I might be getting a hint of lemon or some other dried out citrus fruit. Palate is also dominated by DMS, doughy pale malt that evokes cheap white bread, and low key grassy hops coupled with the odd apple juice or artificial banana fruity note that pokes out here and there. Thin, super fizzy, and finishes crisp and clean despite the sweet start, although I did notice a propensity to get sweeter and a bit rank as the beer warmed up. Its a standard American adjunct lager from Asia. Cooked, sweet, bland. I choose Singha for a reason.

Yellow golden color with a thin fluffy head with very short retention.
Aroma of booze, cereals and oxidized lemon.
Flavor of sweet cereals, cooked vegetables, lots of diacetyl and booze, oxidation and a spicy sensation. Dry aftertaste with a light bitterness.
Light body with good carbonation.
This is much worse than its local competitor Singha and also behind our local mass adjunct lagers. Awkward flavor with lots of off-flavors with a low drinkability. To toss it, a sin I at any cost.
