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.

Aroma is sweet malts, some mild grains, mild rice as well as some slight strange bitterness. Flavour is sweet grains, mild malts and rice along with some mild bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (16440) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Muffig süßer Antrunk, im Mittelteil schwächer wird. Etwas getreidig-herb, verwässert. Im weiteren Verlauf leicht herb, minimal hopfig, höchstens im Abgang merkt man, dass das Bier wohl würzig sein soll. Joah... 7/7/7/7/9/7

Can (filled 11/2006)
Pale yellow color, decent cloudy white head. Papery malty aroma with hints of rice. Cardboard malty flavor, slightly metallic with hints of rice too. No actual faults although, just another boring tropical lager.
