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: pale yellow, fizzy, light head. Nose of corn and grass with light hops and husky sweet malt. The flavor is slavic and very cheap lager tasting. Sweet lingering finisb but a decent bitterness. Meh.

Sweet and malty all the way through. Totally drinkable a lotta lemony flavour and boring.

Bottle. A solid light refreshing brew. It exhibited a solid malt profile. With a nice soft brite frutiness, no hops, and a touch of mellow yeastiness. Simple and solid and about as good as I can imagine a pale lager being. Nice and smooth on the palate, quite pleasing actually.

Bottle at a Thai joint in Pearl River, NY. It’s an Asian pale lager. Light with some slightly sour hops. Good thirst quencher alongside spicy Thai food. It is what it is.

Gift from a friend, from a delicatessen store. It pours clear deep golden liquid, with a small white bubbly head. Its aroma is light, malty, with some grainy hops and rice. The taste is very singular: it is a malty beer, with some fruity hints (grapes) but it has a curious touch that reminds me of sake, given the presence of rice. It is averagedly carbonated, smooth and medium bitter. Interesting refreshing beer to give a try.

ClubGonzo (5416) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours a standard pale lager body with virtually no head. Smell is pale malts, maize and sugary hints. Taste is pretty average "international lager"-style, fair enough but no big thrills to be found here. A bit sweet. No real faults on this one, just generally boring.

33 cl.bottle. Pours darker than most lagers, average white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Tastes the same as the aroma with a tiny bit of hops. Average at best.

Very heavy beer, but so heavy it’s extremely smooth going down. One thing that will catch you off guard is that going down it tastes pretty unique, but the after taste (palate) tastes something like an American light beer. It does carry the color of a American light beer but the aroma smells rich.
