Very bland, empty bodied beer. Not for me!

This beer has nothing to offer. You're better off drinking a variety of better AAL from reputable companies with higher standards.

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.

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.
