Was our go to while in Thailand as there was not much else. Was a good value but did come with a vicious "Changover"

Clear golden bubbly body with a soap bubbly head that thins quick. Thin sweet grass aroma. Faint malt and spice taste. Clean and crisp finish.

Tried this at a local Thai place. Way to dry and flavorless.

I lived in Thailand 4 times and spent a total of about 5 years there, so I felt i should at least take the time to write about their beers...which are all bad. There are a few local brew places that are okay, but the stuff sold in stores is all bad.
Not much to say about Chang specifically. Cheap bad beer from Thailand. Piss.

Yes it is bland and boring, but nothing unpleasant like some of these AALs. A touch of sweet malts in the finish. Easy drinker that pretty much goes down like water. I could easily polish off a few of these in a warm climate, and isn't that kind of the point of these export AALs?

Goes perfectly well spice Thai food. Besides that, it's pretty flavorless. Refreshing.

Boring and a bit unpleasant beer that lacks character. Quite expensive too.

Really Beeradvocate? You are forcing me to write a review of this beer just to rate it? Here goes:

I am at my hotel in Bangkok. This is crappy Thai beer. It's 6%, so it's doing the job a little better than the 5% piss available. Don't expect anything spectacular. Tastes like singha, tiger, San miguel, asahi, or any other asian piss!

Had one while waiting for my takeout at my local Thai restaurant. I have to say, it's not terrible and I was expecting it to be pretty bad. Reminds me a bit more of a Czech pilsner thanan adjunct lager. Definitely has a sweet malt backbone that beers of this type don't usually have. No particularly off flavors and I have to attribute that to its 5/15/15 sell be date. In truth its actually pretty good. So based on the reviews I've seen, get one of these fresh if you can or don't bother.

Pretty mucha carbon copy of the aroma profile. Mildly sweet with orange and mandarin and a slightly sour nip at the end so it is like eating a mandarin that is just on the turn.

Clear golden with two fingers of white head. Head lasts about five minutes. No lacing in evidence.
The smell is lightly skunked probably due to the age of this bottle. It says best before 05 15 14.
Taste is pure European Pilsner. Very smooth malts with an herbal hop note to balance.
Mouthfeel was slightly under carbonated and light bodied.
Overall a suprisingly tasty beer. I will try to find a fresher version to see if it improves any.
