COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

330ml can from 7-11 @ Koh Lipe, Thailand. Foam disappears really fast, looks like no acids. Cheapest beer at 7-11 if don’t count Siamsoto. Mild smell and taste.

jmgreenuk (7453) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 28, 2016
Well, still in production it seems. Can, 5% from a Bangkok 7-11. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white had and lots of bubbles. The aroma is grainy malt, some light hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a dry, cardboard, rice-lice, light floral hop bitter palate. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation,

Large bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. White, two finger head. Pale golden. Very little aroma. Little carbonation. Slight hop taste but not much else. Watery mouthfeel. Bland but refreshing.

Bottle@Thailand. Pale golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, the flavour is also dry and mildly yeasty. Overall a reasonable lager when in Thailand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2016
Can. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light cardboard. Body is light, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light corn and faint metal. Finish is short, malty and lightly sweetish, light corn and faint metal. Watery lager with notes of metal - lacks totally bitterness. Tastes really cheap.

Puszka 0,32l kolor słomkowy, piany brak , aromat i smak lekko trawiasty. W kuflu robi przygnębiające wrażenie. Wypić i zapomnieć.
