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.

GTAEgeek (2014) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2013
330 mL bottle. Pale gold color with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lemon peels, hay, caramel, and cereal. Sweet and a little spicy, with a mild and unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Light body, lightly effervescent and a little mealy. Overall, this has some flavor and character, but is still mediocre, at best.

Drank way to many Samuel Adams. But this one comes from sentimental value. So thank you Cpt. Julian I greatly appreciate it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale yellow pour with quick, hitter foam. Sweet cereal malt in the nose with a little grassy hops. The body is light and fizz moderate. The balance tips toward the hops and the finish is clean. There is a little lingering sweetness.

Review: 330 ml Bottle of Chang Beer Export: ABV: 5% With a nice logo of two big elephants facing each other on its label, Chang is the Thai word for elephant, an important animal in Thailand as a symbol of both power and peace. On pour we get a nice clear yellow colour, with a big frothy white head that is decent enough, and which settles down but maintains. A lot of carbonation, very bubbly and lively No real lacing. Overall, not a bad looking beer On the nose I get an initial sweet piercing smell of lemon but overall not so strong, very faint. A beery smell, sweet grains, hay, lemon, malts, all good on the nose, but as I mentioned not so strong..... Taste is bittersweet, soft, clean and relatively easy to drink. Some light grains, but not enough to really get excited about. Bit of an aftertaste, all bitter. Stringent sweet malts Too sweet for my liking, and the tastes are not well balanced. Not a great beer, very little to actually taste. Ok it is a little sessionable, but overall it is not really enjoyable. Bland. I am not a fan. Apparently the home brew version is meant to be better than the export version, brewed with rice rather than malt, and is a 6.4% strength lager. Perhaps another inspection is needed, on a beach in Pattaya supping an ice cold beer enjoying the sun......

Ljus och klar. Väldigt snäll och anonym smak. Lite bröd, mycket lätt beska och inte så mycket mer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
