look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Very pale kilned malts colour with a two finger head of soapy foam head that dies to patchy lace over and leaves zero lacing on the glass sides.

Smell - Mild slightly sweet malt with orange mandarin aroma and and a slight sour element.

Taste - 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.

Mouthfeel - Slightly thin and mercifully no linger.

Overall - Slightly better than I had expected this beer is not dreadful and with some spicy food it is drinkable but it is not one I will ever buy again and I would never serve it to real people.

Between Chang and Singha I prefer Singha.

This is what I expected. An imported , probably mass produced beer from, from Thailand. Did I actually expect more?. The color is the best part of this beer. It is a crystal clear gold color with small bubbles rising from the bottom of thr glass and gently nudging the top of the beer. Head was fast and gone just as fast. Tiny lacing. Aroma is kind of like a damp skunk!. Taste also is like a damp skunk, lol. Seriously, it is an ok beer that I would drink very cold when I am looking for a quick buzz and I can pound a few of them

Presentation: Much like Singha, the label is satisfying enough. It looks like a crest for a long forgotten kingdom. I like to keep bottles around for decoration, and this is a mainstay just for the curiosity it creates

Appearance: Very light yellow color with small fizzy head that vanished in minute. Very fizzy beer

Smell: Sweet malty smell, but has a noticeable synthetic smell with it as well.

Taste: nothing inspiring at all. Not horrible by any means, same light bitterness and fruitiness like Singha, but only less noticeable.

Not a exciting beer, was it worth the $8 dollar a pack? yea I suppose, and sure it was more warmly received in my circle then a Budweiser or Corona, but I can go the rest of my life without it and would rather spend money on something else

I bought a bottle of this from Lidl supermarket, with low expectations and mainly for the sake of drinking a Thai beer.
Appearance: Yellow/gold color with 1 finger white head that does not last long.
Smell: What you would expect more or less [the benefit of very low expectations...]; some malt is the main thing that comes out.
Taste: This is where the beer falls hard on its face. Nothing that I could discern whatsoever and a really annoyingly flat aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light but discernible carbonation, light body, slick texture.
Drinkability/Overall: Overall has the character of a typical mass-produced lager. Fairly refreshing at first and I could picture drinking it (in absence of other choices) on a hot summer day, but other than that I would not want to try it again and barely did not mind trying it in the first place.
