Given its style, price point and market, I'm very surprised this beer isn't rated higher. This international take on the macro-brewed American Adjunct Lager surpasses its prototypes in every single way. Chang has a wonderful meadlike quality. It is sweet, refreshing, crisp, smooth finishing. Everything AB Inbev promises in its commercials but fails to deliver in its products Chang has in spades.

On draught in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
This is a pale lager with low carbonation. Smell and taste are both light. Slightly sweet, rice is noticeable and hoppy bitterness is low. Mouthfeel has some chew but is otherwise light. The lack of carbonation is unusual.
This beer is adequate sat next to the river on a balmy December evening. It suits the locale but it would be average to poor in any other circumstance.

Bought a 6-pack $8.96 Sam's Club
Clear light golden color
Medium-high carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Taste really light, watery, easy drinking for hot days, sweet light malt favor
Overall just ok. Not worth the premium price, but if you're eating spicy food at a Thai restaurant I can see this going well with that. On its own nothing great. Would not buy again.

I purchased a bottle of Chang Beer for $1.99 USD in San Gabriel, California/USA.
Look: Chang Beer had a medium amount of foam.
Smell: Chang Beer had an aromatic aroma of alcohol, beer, and grains.
Taste: Chang Beer had a taste which contained flavors of fermented grains, hops, and rice.
Feel: Chang Beer had the feeling which reminded me of average amounts of carbonation.
Overall: Chang Beer is a beer that you can find in some stores. Chang Beer is a beer for people who are thirsty.

A terribly low-quality beer with zero aftertaste. You drink it, it's gone.

Unfortunately Chang had an exceptionally nice beer, Chang Export. They did a lot of marketing, was a smooth dry balanced taste, not too sweet as Thai beers normally tend to.

Chang today is an industrial brew with close to no barley and hops in it, am told by a local expert brewer it's all rice.
