ThaiBev stopped production of Archa, Chang Beer, Chang Draught, Chang Light, and Chang Export in 2015. A new product, Chang Classic, was launched, with production shared between ThaiBevís three breweries. The recipe of Chang Classic includes rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version of Chang Beer.
It is not known if Chang Draught was ever a different beer to the 5% abv Chang Beer or simply a re-badge.

Pours pale golden with a small head. Both aromas and taste are sweet, artificial with notes of grain and malts. All-in-all a pretty bad attempt on a lager beer.

(2) Not worth trying. The best thing about drinking this beer was that I was drinking it in Thailand and the weather was so much better than Denmark.

At a tasting, thanks zvsn, smallish head, touch hazy yellow color, light aroma of honey with some spice, maybe ginger, light malty bready flavor, bland with a very light body.Drinkable but a complete waste of liver space.

Geel bier met schuim, blik 50cc. Smaak is licht zoet, niet standaard pilsener. Verder goed bier voor in de tropen.

jmgreenuk (7838) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 7, 2014
Tap at the Pintsman, Bangkok. Iím sitting here drinking this stuff when there are much better beers on offer. Oh woe is the life of a ticker! Quite predictably, it poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of gas. The aroma is malt yeast, light hop. The the flavour is medium bitter with a dry earthy,mineral malt palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Pretty bad, but no worse than Heineken or maybe Tiger.
