    New Beer From Chang

    I'm probably the last one to know, but I bought these at 7Eleven here in Korat today. Haven't tried either. In case the photo is illegible, one is Black Dragon Red Beer and the other is Huntsman Cloudy Wheat Beer.

    I like the Weizen style beers, but only 4%? Bit disappointing.

    Even the Bear weizen beer brought out a few months (which I'm sure they're copying) is only 4.5%

    As it's typically more filling than normal beer, you can drink less, and it's less %.

    Not really good if you're a raging alcoholic.

    Well, the lower alcohol content is good news for me. Over the past few years I've tried hard to get my alcohol consumption down. Lately I've been drinking Chang poured over a glass full of ice….

    However, for me the result has been good. I've lost about 10 kilos since I started drinking less beer and made a few other dietary adjustments. Lower alcohol content means I can drink more. Right?

    Sounds positively dreadful K. Buadhai...

    It's a scheme to consume less calories and it seems to be working. All the consumer level beers in Thailand suck anyway, so diluting them with ice makes little difference in the flavor.

    BTW, I drank the Black Dragon Red Beer last night. It poured a very dark reddish brown with a creamy head that disappeared almost instantly. (I did not drink it over ice.)

    There was no aroma at all. The taste was a bit sweet with a hint of molasses. Otherwise, flavorless.

    I'll try the Huntsman this evening.

    BTW, I just got back from a couple of weeks in Brisbane and Sydney. It was a real treat to be able to drink beer that actually has some flavor. It seems that every pub has at least half a dozen decent beers on tap. Not once did I feel the need to bother with ice.

    Nice pic. Reminds me what a bar looks like. Wish I could get a decent scotch here.
