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 beer is by far my favourite beer for the legitimate reasons listed as following; However irrelevant it may be to the beer tasters list of considerations, Chang beer has provided as a fantastic ice in situations of particular awkwardness e.g. A large group of people meeting each other for the first time, secondly Chang taste-wise has a particular after taste that cannot be reproduced by any other larger I have tasted to date, thirdly the smoothness of the beer appeals to any experienced or inexperienced drinker, it has a tendency to sit at the back of the throat, allowing you to annoy it for longer than your average brew. Finally but by no means the least important factor when considering Chang, is its pricing which falls at least 10 baht below its competitors, making it affordable and additionally a sustainable drink when visiting south east Asia. I sincerely hope that Chang gains a higher rating and reputation on this page as it has served me and others I know quite well.

This is a grate pale lager, one of the best I have drink. The aroma is like every pilsner should be, light, malty, litlle bit of hops, the same in flavor. It is a crispy beer without the skunky or metallic flavor of typical macro industrial lagers. Hops in flavor are very unique, something between floral and citic. Will drink it again, definetively. Asian lagers are a little bit underated, but there are good examples that not all industrial lagers are crap.

Notes: 12 fl oz bottle. A great beer to have with a burger and fries. Goes down smooth with no over powering bitterness or sweetness. A: Yellow & Gold with a decent firm head. S: Smells of cereal and other grain. T: A hint of malt, cereal, and grian that is not to overpowered and not to subtle; Has a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. D: Excellent drinkability. Very smooth. Not to bitter and not to sweet.

Chang Beer is no longer made with any rice or corn adjuncts. 11.15 oz. bottle. The head was slightly off-white and thin, and the appearance was golden and quite bubbly. No lacing. The aroma is of sweet, lightly-toasted barley malt, and the flavor is of sweet malt, sugar, and mild hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Chang finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mostly dry, and incredibly drinkable. This is a wonderful beer, and I strongly recommend it. RJT

Better than expected. Malt base is present and contributes a sweetness. Unfortunately weak though. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I must be on a different planet. Sweet, with a sweet after taste, this doesnt taste like normal beer. very light on the hops side. Enjoyable... especially with a good spicy thai meal.
