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”.

Chang pours slightly hazy and with a pale. Head persisted for a little longer than average. There’s barely any aroma present. What is there is not so great. Light sugary smells with a slightly off-putting funky malts (almost a little bit of rancid butter). Very much like the smell would indicate, this beer has very little taste. And what is there doesn’t much appeal to me- a little sugary but with that rancid butter malt taste just flirting on the edge of my palate. Blech. At least the mouthfeel is about right. Light carbonation, light consistency. Maybe a little much malt follow through actually. I wouldn’t drink a lot of these, even with the lightness. If you’re in Thailand and looking for a beer, I think Leo is your best bet.

Ljus och klar. Väldigt snäll och anonym smak. Lite bröd, mycket lätt beska och inte så mycket mer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
