Domestic product, retired in Summer 2015.
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 of Chang Beer was changed to include rice, previously only used in the domestic 6.4% version. It is sold as 5.5% abv in some markets.
Chang was made with the vision of the top executives to expand the beer market with a Thai taste albeit with international quality, to give the consumers an alternative with the fervent belief in the brewing and production capability of the Thais. With its attractive taste and a price that appealed to consumers at all levels, the response and success of Beer 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. Since then, Beer Chang has become known as the international Gold Medallion winner beer of Thailand. Note: alcohol content may vary

Better than I expected. I'm leary of S.E. Asian beers but this wasn't horid as some I've tried. Goes great with spicy thai food!

I was dissapointed to find out that Carlsberg is brewing this beer. It's an OK pilsner, not very interesting, but better than what I'm used to from Denmark...!!!

Gold bronze in colour. Pours with a sprity head. Sweet hoppy aroma with soapy bitter tatse.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2003
Golden colour. Quickly diminishing head. Malty aroma, with an ok hopbitter finish. Between that a somehow weird adjunct taste.

MartinT (9653) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
A distinct cereal aroma foretells a wet hay flavour that borders metal...It does not predict though the soda pop feel...The latecoming bitterness is useless, as the damage cannot be repaired...Some would say it was perfect for the frozen mug it came with...

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2003
Alcoholic but not much more. The name of the beer is the repetitive sound in your head first thing in the morning after over imbibing in this brew. Thai a yellow washer 'round the old throbbin' brow.

fiulijn (20063) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2003
Blond color, poor head. Simple aroma, bread. No character; quite sweet, boring. Short and poor palate. Singha is better.

Another drinkable Carlsberg, good beer to thai food, wouldn't drink it for pleasure.
