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.

Chang pours slightly hazy and with a pale. Head persisted for a little longer than average. Theres barely any aroma present. What is there is not so great. Light sugary smells with a slightly off-putting funky malts (almost a little bit of rancid butter). Very much like the smell would indicate, this beer has very little taste. And what is there doesnt much appeal to me- a little sugary but with that rancid butter malt taste just flirting on the edge of my palate. Blech. At least the mouthfeel is about right. Light carbonation, light consistency. Maybe a little much malt follow through actually. I wouldnt drink a lot of these, even with the lightness. If youre in Thailand and looking for a beer, I think Leo is your best bet.

Bottle at Thai restaurant, Eastbourne. Slightly sweet and spicy beer with decent finish. Remember this as a treat on a warm day in Thailand.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Straw color, very small white head. Aroma and taste of corn, grains, cardboard, grass. A below average pale lager, but not the worst Ive had.

Aroma: odd sweet/corn smell; not good; Appearance: clear golden pour with momentary head; Taste: standard macro pale lager; Palate: light bodied with corn/rice finish; Overall: good enough for a Thailand tick I guess.

Noble hop hay and citrusy on the nose, higher light malt/grainy sweetness, very light bitterness. Balance towards malt, not as refreshing.

Had it from a bottle. Clearly an industrialized beer, with little personality. On the Lager scale is not so bad. Better served ice cold. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure when this was retired - I just picked up a single from Corks & Kegs in Richmond. Its definitely bottled as Chang Beer. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn chips (and shit, now I have a Fritos craving). Flavor is pretty bad... envelope glue, the mint kinda even, along with corn, rice water, and paper. I cant give this above an overall 1 - the flavor of this is beer is one of the worst Ive had in my mouth.

Bottle sample from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, grass, skunky notes, just not good.

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
