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.

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 Ive had. It would make for a good ball-game or lawn-mowing beer, but thats 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. Its sweet and vegetal. Theres 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.

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.

Bottle. Small white mostly diminishing head, no lacing, transparent body, visible carbonation, and a pale yellow hue. The aroma is metallic, some corn and hints of apple. The flavor is somewhat grainy, flat and finishes dry. The mouthfeel is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. I was barely able to finish my pour of this beer as it came very, very close to being a drainpour for me. Next!!

Poured a yellow/golden with a smallish head. Typical Asian rice/corn beer. Not offensive, but Ill take a Signha any day.

Tick, tick, tick, ding! Another country, at least I dont think Ive done Thailand before. Pour was a bit on the flatter side of things alongside my excellent Thai food. Aroma was corn and metallic notes. The flavor was sweet grainy corn, bet I have never written that before about a pale lager. Mouthfeel was light, but decent for a pale lager. Snore for a beer, coolo for another country. Hope this one didnt come with formaldehyde and all.

bottle - another purchase for my label collection, didnt expect much. Here we have yet another typical asian rice / corn brew. Pours golden color with only a few bubbles comprising the head. Sweet malty aroma, very sweet corn meal taste. So sweet the last bit wound up down the drain.
