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 ThaiBev’s three breweries. The recipe was changed to include rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version of Chang Beer.

Kullankeltainen olut. Nopeasti häviävä vaahto. Ei tuoksu juuri miltään. Pirteän hiilihappoinen suutuntuma. Maku mitäänsanomaton, toimii janojuomana.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 330ml bottle from a hypermarket in Helsinki, clear pale yellow colour with small fizzy fully vanishing white head, virtually no lacing. Light malty aroma of grain and a hint of grassy hops, taste is bittersweet at first turning into a slightly bitter short acetic finish, light to medium body with an oily texture, lively carbonation. Aroma and taste were typical lawnmower beer, but actually the palate was even half decent, so it classifies a bit above the average bulk lager.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - AUG 18, 2013
Pours dark yellow, light nose of sweetness, malt flavour, some floral and plastic. Not as bad as other Changs. Aaaaand pale lager is once again my most rated style; thanks, Thailand, for bringing the universe into balance!
