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.

It lacks a strong flavor but what is there is pleasant, I liked it better than some other asian beers that I've had. There was almost no smell at all. A little watery but smooth. My bottle says it's 5% ABV not the 6.4% listed on here.

An average Thailand Asia beer. Very light, no after taste - you dun realize that you were drinking a beer at all. Taste just like a cold soda.
