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”.

Bottle. Floral grainy or hoppy aroma. Little to no head and a crisp golden colour. Flavour is fresh and funky. This is on ok lager.

I had several of these beers while in Chiang Mai, Thailand, poured from the bottle into a short glass. The beer has a sour funky-grainy scent with a bit of sour mash and yeast. It has a clear, light gold color with a small foamy white head with short retention and no cling. The taste is fairly bitter and sour with a bit of grain and earth. A light, thin body with little carbonation and a very light mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass at Thai restuarant. Poured light golden color with creamy white head, somewhat lasting, no lace. Aromas and flavors like any other mass-produced export lager. I’m not picking up much adjunct offals, but there’s nothing particularly great either. Crisp, refreshing lager finish. Works well with spicy green curry.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours pale yellow with very small head that dissapates very quickly. Very little lacing, thin body, and low carbonation. Taste is light grainy malt (some adjunct coming through) and hint of hops in the finish.

Very pale body with a small head. Quite watery and tasteless, but has notes of rice, grain and hops. Hardly any aftertase. Not much to write about.

Bottled, 330ml at Siam House, Thai Restaurant, Banbury. Yellow straw with white head. Surprised that I hadn’t rated this one before. Malty, dryish pale lager, was ok with a blooming hot Prawn with fresh chilli dish, in fact several cold ones were consumed.
