COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
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”.

Bottle, 33cl, at home @10°C Clear, golden with dense, white head. Aroma of malt and cereala. Thin and watery body with sweetish malt. Watery bitterness. Not very well balanced. Not recommendable

12 oz bottle at Top Thai restaurant in Arlington, VA. Goes well with any Thai dish with a bit of skunk taste at the end. Nothing wrong, just good overall.

FatPhil (13276) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 5, 2015
330ml bottle (Krua, Tallinn)
Extremely pale, tight persistent head. Sweet corny malty aroma. Papery too. Dusty corny sweet papery taste. Finish pretty nasty, papery and dusty, a hint of something metallic. The two best things about this are (a) it is a tick; and (b) I never have to have it again. Not even good accompanying a curry. Ugh, aroma gets more like milky baby puke later. Baaaaad.

bbertels (329) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Can. Light, light, light -- and a bit of a hint of hops and malts. No real aroma and very simple. Drinkable as a thirst quencher but there are many other better lagers, even macro lagers, around.
