Reduced from 5.4% in 2014. Beer Archa was first launched in July 2004 to expand the market share, particularly in the standard and premium product groups, and to respond to increasing demands from a new generation of beer drinkers who prefer smooth beer with lower alcohol content. Beer Archa thus serves as another alternative for beer drinkers.
Production stopped in 2015
ThaiBev stopped production of Archa, Chang Beer, Chang Draught, Chang Light, and Chang Export in 2015. A new product, Chang Classic, was launched, with production shared between ThaiBev’s three breweries. The recipe of Chang Classic includes rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version of Chang Beer.

Fisler (371) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2015
Himmel, ist das ekelhaft. Ich nippe nur dreimal daran, um hier noch irgendetwas einzutragen. Schmeckt, wenn überhaupt, erst im Bachgang nach Bier. Nichtmal im Aroma kann man irgendetwas erwähnenswertes finden. Kein Wunder, dass das Zeug in so großen Flaschen verkauft wird und man aufs Rücklabel verzichtet. Das hat man davon, wenn man in Thailand noch schnell Bier im 7/11 kauft.

330ml can "enjoyed" in a hotel room in Phuket. Pours very pale yellow with a soapy white head. Aroma of corn and rice. Taste is similar plus metallic notes. This is the worst Thai lager I've tried.

330ml can bought in Myanmar. Pours hazy(!) Yellow with no head to speak of. Aroma is of fairy liquid and grain. Taste isn’t too bad. Just another cheap Asian lager but nowhere near as bad as some.
