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”.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Crispy lager with nice brownish color and pretty good taste compared to other Thai alternatives. Also nice slightly hoppy aftertaste. This rating in Thailand at Ban Phe harbour café where this beer should be enjoyed as best. Refreshing, crisp, as good as always when here..

Pours a pale golden color. Aroma is of malts, rice, and a little skunk. Flavors include malts, rice, corn, and skunk. Leaves a bitter malty skunked finish. Similar to a Heineken.

Weak, no head, no taste and no discernable qualities. Might as well have been water.

Very little head, not much aroma to speak of either. Served chilled at a restaurant, okay grain taste and a dry finish. Simple and thirst quenching but nothing to go out of your way for.

A: The pour is a clear, light golden color without much foam. S: The smell is very, very light. Almost nothing really tickles the senses, in fact. Just a bit sweet and grainy, to be honest. T: Just like everything else about this beer, the taste is light as well. A mild sweetness from the grain and corn, and little to no hop character. M: Very flight and crisp on the tongue. D: This is probably the lightest, most water-like beer I’ve had. It would make for a good ball-game or lawn-mowing beer, but that’s about it.

Surprisingly on the sweeter side. I suppose the rice has a little to do with it. Everything else about it is pretty bland and boring. The aroma and taste is nothing great, but if your abroad then check one out.

Bleh. This is just another crappy macro lager. It’s sweet and vegetal. There’s a sickly sourness in the aroma that is off-putting. The head fades almost immediately and a pale golden glass, perfectly calm, is not terribly appetizing. The flavor lacks for hops and the malt tastes cheap and adjuncty. This beer must sell solely on the strength of its country of origin. This was a disappointment even as a curiosity.

courtesy of Markus Obrist - clear and pale golden colour with a little white foam left;some wet paper and traces of solvant; sweet and smooth on the tongue; moderate malt body; the finish is buttery with more notes of paperboard

Served in a Thai restaurant in a self branded glass that did not hold all the beer. Very much corny and no real flavor...kinda what i expected but still a disappointment.
