Can from 7-11 in Krabi. From notes.

A - Poured golden and bright. Good carbonation. Minimal head. Little lace and a retention.

S - Sweet grain.

T - Honey, corn. Not strong. Sweet. Moderate depth of flavour.

M - Mild carbonation, medium body, sweet sorta finish.

O/D - Pretty run of the mill, like most Asian lagers. Not exactly refreshing.

Very nice color and it had a hint of rice in its odor. The head was a bright-white which dissipated very quickly. The taste though was something other than I expected. It was surprisingly good. It felt good in the mouth, and went down extremely good. I was very impressed with this beer and would definitely try it in it's other varieties.

Ive heard that the abv can change from bottle to bottle... So be carful drinking this beer! Wait 20 determin if you are ok to have another one. I dont drink it right now so I dont have the taste in my mouth but I remember it as a really good beer. Chang in thai means elephant as shown on the bottle.

Light golden with small white head. Light sweet malty aroma with hint of rice flavor. More body and flavour than a classic South-East Asian lager. Higher alcohol content too, but still very drinkable in the heat of the Bangkok sun. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Not a great beer, but a quite drinkable and pleasant pale lager.
