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”.

This beer seems to need a split in the RateBeer database - my 330 ml bottle (in France), simply named Chang Beer, was a typical standard pale lager at 5.0% ABV, and can’t possibly be "the same beer" as a 6.4% "malt liquor"??!! Anyhow, my beer pours with a golden colour and a large head. "Neutral" lager flavour, not offensive, moderate sweetness. Okay with a spicy Thai meal.

Can, alc. 5% (BB 09/2006)
Pale golden color, good big creamy foam. Malty, rice-like aroma. Light. Mostly sweet malty with hints of corn. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. Propably at its best when drinked ice cold on Thai beach.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2006
Poured clear orange gold with a fast disappearing head. An aroma that is all wet dog and vegetal. A flavour that is all sugary sweet malt. Another crappy lager. (Bottle - 5% abv)

Little in the way of aroma, and likewise, little in the way of flavour! Initially the pale gold body was topped by a fairly thick white head, but that fizzled away in seconds to leave zilch! Pretty much a standard, uninspired lager-type brew. £1.05 from a Chinese C&C in Newcastle, I didn’t buy it so I don’t know where it is, but it’s called the Wing Hong...! Alcohol content for this one is 5%.

ALLOVATE (3095) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2005
Gold medal winner at the A.I.B.A. in ’98, something could be said more about the judges, themselves, than the beers . Questionable choices to say the least. Tasted from the ’Carlsberg clone’ bottle (Thanks, Papsoe), and poured into a Pilsner glass. A soapy white head formed and became dense (showed good retention), atop a brilliant pale gold body. Fairy floss, rice starch and freshly mowed grass in the aroma. Quite clean, but adjunct ridden. Grassy in the mouth and generously bitter, giving it a crispness on the palate and little length. Quite herbal, with low vinous notes, lemon and orange rinds, candi sugar and rice. Light bodied and medium carbonated, it was quite a balanced brew, but leaned towards the sweet end as it warmed. Not the most suited of South East Asian beers, but not overly bad..... just boring, I guess!!! (5.0%ABV)

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 21, 2004
5%. Dark golden body with a good size lasting white head. Light metallic hop aroma. Sweetness at first then a harsh aftertaste. If I am in Thailand give me a Singha!

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 This is fine for drinking with a Thai Green Curry,but thats about it.The appearance is alot like a urine sample ,not much aroma and it just seems to go flat really quickly.Sorry....what the Thais loose in beer they make up for in food!! Am i wrong but my beer is only 5% and not 6.4% ? Gold medal winner in 98 Australia beer awards, what was it up against 4X and Fosters ?

pilsnerrogge (3037) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2004
(Bottled, 5.0%) Yellow colour, decent head. Thin, metallic aroma. Thin, grainy, slightly sourish flavour with a touch of glue. Harsh bitterness, not pleasant at all. Really, really awful.

rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2004
Bottled, 5,0%. Golden. International Lager with maize character. A bit dry, sandy and evaporating ending. Ok with Thai food in Phuket - or Nyhavn.
