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 ThaiBev’s 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

An orange beer with a nice white head. The aroma is slightly sour - is it brewing cereal? but also caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with some sour notes, it must be brewing cereal. The flavor also has notes of metal and a little caramel. The end is dry flat metal. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for bringing this to Denmark before it was available here.

Pale golden. Dry, light bodied, some sourishness and a surprisingly big bitterness.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Market-leading beer in Thailand and used to be brewed in a joint venture with Carlsberg before the two companys got into a fierce series of mutual lawsuits. "Chang" means elephant (or "big") and don’t the two elephants on the label look suspiciously like Carlsberg’s elephants? Pale, strong lager with a pronounced hop-bite and an underlying sweetness. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit tough to call this a "malt liquour", I believe it’s better and more refined than that. 101103
