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 ThaiBevs 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. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of slightly sweet biscuit and corn. Flavor is similar, a little off flavor. Not good, but not terrible.

12 oz bottle serves in a "stella type" glass Yellowish, straw in color. Noting too intriguing about the color. Yet a small head with a nice small consistent lacing through out the whole beer. A slight sweet soft candy note but with a distinct grain backbone. a little corn. A little sweet . A sweet grainy build to it. Not completely off putting, compared to most "american adjuncts" Light bodied, but not watery. Medium carbonation.I would put the drinkability on this medium to high. I was invited to a Thai place and when I arrived I realized there wasnt anything for me to drink and then after being offered this. I was surprised to say the least. My perspective was that this is gonna be another crappy adjutant lager, well It wasnt. Next time Im in a Thai place Ill get one of these. It not bad.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 3/1/2011. Has a faint grassy aroma. . Taste wise, there is some malt, a hint of grassiness and bread, and a tiny bit of citrus fruit flavour and modest hops at the end. A drinkable pale lager but nothing more.

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle at a Thai restaurant. The body is dark gold with a thin white head. The nose is grainy with raw dough. There is also some carrot. The taste is like celery with a hint of black pepper spice. There is also some biscuit. This is decent.

BillHick420 (458) - NORWAY - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours like a pale lager. Tastes like watered down Budweiser. If in Thailand, other beers are available. Stay away from Chang and Singha

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle and Tap. Pours a medium gold with a thin dissipating head. Aroma is toast, grass, lgiht grainy vegetal and dms. Flavor is earthy, light white wine, toast, biscuit, light barley grain, corn rice, sake-like, mineral and leafy finish with an odd solvent character. meh.

Daytonbeer (726) - Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2010
At a Thai restaurant. Here for the food, not the beer. Thought Id rate a Thai beer anyway. Not very impressive, yet it is refreshing. Pours light yellow. Not much aroma. Taste is light malts and alittle funky.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with short-lived head. Pale malts on both the nose and the palate, and fairly clear and crisp, but rather unremarkable with it.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Clear yellow pour. Not skunked but smelled a little off. Flavor was basically non existent. Maybe a bit of biscuit, but this was ice cold and tasted a lot like water. Some grass and light bread came out as it warmed, but pretty underwhelming.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle: pale yellow, fizzy, light head. Nose of corn and grass with light hops and husky sweet malt. The flavor is slavic and very cheap lager tasting. Sweet lingering finisb but a decent bitterness. Meh.
