Domestic product, retired in Summer 2015.
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 of Chang Beer was changed to include rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version. It is sold as 5.5% abv in some markets.
Chang was made with the vision of the top executives to expand the beer market with a Thai taste albeit with international quality, to give the consumers an alternative with the fervent belief in the brewing and production capability of the Thais. With its attractive taste and a price that appealed to consumers at all levels, the response and success of Beer 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”. Since then, Beer Chang has become known as “the international Gold Medallion winner beer of Thailand”. Note: alcohol content may vary

500ml can in Bangkok. Had a little more the Draught. Pours yellow and fizzy. Not much aroma. Good beer for the Bangkok heat.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Tried way too many times in Phuket. Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, rice and light hops. Sweet taste. Refreshing in the Thai heat, but that’s about it. ABV seems to vary despite always being labelled as 6.4%.

Bought a can on Langkawi, Malaysia. Decent lager, little bit sweet but not to sweet.

serjaymz (170) - Istanbul, TURKEY - NOV 14, 2014
Şişe, istanbul. Görüntü hoş, beyaz dolgun köpük, sarı bol gazlı, kabarcıklı bir lager.. Koku zayıf, çekici değil, sadece malt.. Tadım standart, damakta kalıcı değil, ferahlatıcı susuzluk giderici..

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Cans purchased in Myanmar and Thailand. Pours a clear yellowy orange. Aroma of weak malts. Usual boring taste. Yet another beer that’s OK in the heat and thats about it.

"I could say things like goes wel with food, isn’t offensive, etc, etc...but really that’s just a nice way of saying this beer sucks. Not as bad as some. It’s crisp and dry and those things are nice. But it’s an adjunct lager through and through.

ElManana (1920) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Canned from 7/11. Lots of malt, nothing hoppy to be found. Exactly as expected, a sugarly malty beer with no complexity.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle, 6% ABV. Sweetish, malty, tasteful, with floral estery notes. It’s crisp and yet quite robust for a southern lager. A big surprise, this is actually a decent beer.
