Not too much flavor... almost watery.... however very drinkable. Reminds me of the Japanese beer "Asahi dry" . Goes down smooth and is the type of beer that I can drink a lot of at a barbeque on a sunny day. Nothing special. Very little aroma and after taste.

Straw- colored with little foam, Chang beer has a nose that is vegetable- like and very faint. There is no head of foam to speak of and the body of the beer is completely clear.

This beer has a rather bland flavor profile. It features the taste of sweet grains, the lightest caramel, and some barely perceptible hops. The beer is sweet overall and the body is a little on the flat side. A touch of toasted malt flavor comes through with repeated sips, but the beer remains light in overall flavor.

I’m having a really tough time rating this beer. It has a certain adjunct- laden taste that is unappetizing, but on the other hand, it is fairly drinkable even if a little sweeter and less balanced than I prefer. I can think of better tasting Asian brews, but this one is tolerable if it’s all you can find. It is clean and reasonably crisp, even if quite bland and plain overall.

A light, inoffensive lager that succeeds in being a good complement to spicy foods. It's not as bad as some of the reviews claim! Hop fans will want to look elsewhere, as the hop flavor is almost non-existent although it does provide a little bitterness to counteract the malty sweetness. This should not be classified as an adjunct lager as it is an all-malt beer and its maltiness is its most pleasant characteristic. The bottle I drank was near the sell-by date, so while it was pretty drinkable, I am sure it would have been better 10 months ago!

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.
