1.31/5  rDev -49.8%
look: 1.25 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Hazy straw color. The white head recedes before I can blink, no film, no lacing.

Aroma: Stewed meats, cabbage. Sour.

Taste: Slightly sweet malt or adjunct beginning, then sour cabbage.

Mouthfeel: Metallic and carbonated.

Overall: Really uninspiring even for a cheap import.

A thin head on a clear, medium straw colored body. No head left within 20 seconds of the pour.
The aroma is mowed yard grass and honey.
Wow, the taste has a bold metallic flavor upfront... and that continues to the end.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Well, it's one of the worst adjunct lagers I've had.

1.35/5  rDev -48.3%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

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.

I had this beer in a local Thai restaurant down the street. I am a man who loves flavorful food and flavorful beer. I poured this beer in a pilsner glass that was given to me and the head immediately disappeared. The pale yellow hue reminded me of the same color as bud light. The beer was refreshing only because it was cold but lacked flavor in every way possible. I suggest to everyone to pass on this one because it was definitely a big waste of time. Try Singha if you're in a Thai restaurant and don't waste your money or time on Chang like I did.

Picked this one out at a Thai Restaurant. This was the only beer available besides the other BMC suspects...

A- Pale, translucent, watery, golden yellow color. Abolutely nothing going on here. Looked like yellow water with some foam.

S- Straw, hay, grass, apple juice.

T- I honestly cannot tell what I am tasting here. Tasted like stale barley and fresh cut grass.

M- Light bodied. Nothing to this beer.

D- I would not recommend this one to anybody. This is just not good at all. Didn't even taste good with my Thai dinner.

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.

640 ml bottle. Best before 19 may 08.

Clear pale yellow with an equally pale white head.

Light malt aroma, cereal, mild hops.

Flavor is rice with a slight metallic taste and mildly spicy hops.

Finish is dry and slightly tannic.

Maybe it would be better served with some spicy Thai chicken, but on it's own, not good.

A = 1.5 I was almost startled by the size of the bubbles in this beer. They looked like literal dishwashing soap suds. The head faded quickly to a sustained bubbling consistant with any other mass produced carbonated beverage. No lacing whatsoever was left in the glass
S = 2.0 Corn overtones. Some smell of sweet-like hops. Slightly skunky

T = 2.0 Another brew that tastes like it smells. Corn and grains, alcohol undertones, no hops whatsoever. Not even a hint of bitterness. The sweetness and skunkiness is a bit overpowering for my taste

M = 1.5 I hate to make the comparison, but Dr. Pepper soda has a higher quality mouthfeel than this. Barely any bubbles make it to my tongue. By the time my swallow is half finished, there is not a hint of carbonation.

D = 2.0 I'd stay away from this. I would only accept one if it was purchased for me AND if I were in company where refusing to drink it would be an insult. Beyond that, I wouldn't even get intentionally drunk off this beer.
