Ingredients: 100% malt
ThaiBev stopped production of Archa, Chang Beer, Chang Draught, and Chang Export in 2015. A new product, Chang Classic, was launched, with production shared between ThaiBev’s three breweries. The recipe was changed to include rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version. It is sold as 5.5% abv in some markets.
"With its attractive taste and a price that appealed to consumers at all levels, the response and success of Chang marked a new era and turned a new page for the Thai beer industry. In 1998 Beer Chang was awarded the “Gold Medallion” at the International Beer Competition in Australia in the category of “Lager, Unlimited Degree”.

w_adwersarz (435) - Cracow, POLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Piana bardzo mizerna, szybko się rozpadła, praktycznie niec nie pozostawiając na powierzchni. Barwa jasnozłota, wręcz słomkowa, klarowna, nieźle pracuje, ale piany nadal brak. Aromat to odrobina słodów, kwaskowo drożdżowy, odrobinę owocowy. W smaku jest kwaskowe, słodowe, jakby jabłkowe, trawiaste ale w żadnym wypadku nie jest to trawa świeżo skoszona. Wysycenie średnie, wytrawne, goryczki brak.

sinte (499) - Udine, ITALY - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle 0.33L. Clear golden body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Light-to-moderate malty (grains, some bread) and hoppy (herbal) aroma. Moderate sweet and light-to-moderate bitter flavour. Light body with watery texture; average carbonation.

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - AUG 3, 2015
Can in Chiang Mai. Yellow colour with a white head. Poor aroma with a thin body of too sweet brewing cereals, with minimal bitterness. It tastes as cheap as it is. But nevertheless whilst it was ice cold it suited the pat Thai well.
