    IS NOTHING Sacred!!??

    Is nothing sacred? Pretty green boxes!
    Chang is now in new green boxes, bottles now green. ALC 5.5 down from 5.8..years ago I think 6.00+? Taste is a mite different too!

    I was rather fond of Chang when it was 6%.

    I could handle it when they dropped it to 5.8%.

    Now it's at 5.5 % it's off my Menu, the taste has changed as well so that's me done.

    Pay the premium and stick with Dark Lao exclusively.

    Don't know what I'll drink if No Dark.

    Not a great beer drinker generally unless it packs a punch and has some guts to it.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    The Carlsberg transformation is finally complete.

    Sad news indeed. A fortifier is obviously needed to replace the missing alcohol.
    I suggest Lao Khou.

    Wibble.

    Unless you're a farmer in Nakon Nowhere, why would anyone drink this shit? It's fucking rotten.

    Terry, you should just hit the scotch or tequila...It will take you there faster...Try the good shit, not Johnny Rotten Red or the nailpolish remover tequila they have in the speedracks...

    Actually, it's funny how the Thais are big on scotch...Johnny Walker must have passed through here years ago on his way to Vietnam or China...Bastard always seems to be walking at a good clip...

    Good tip on recycling your empty booze bottles in the U.K.
    The recycling bins are green for green bottles,white bin is for clear bottles, brown is for brown bottles.
    It makes no fkn difference when the truck comes to load them into the back of the aha gab.
    The grab truck dumps the empty bottles into the same loader. Coloured bottles end up mixed.
    The beer companies glass supplier knows a thing or two.

    Agree it is now an insipid beer reminiscent of Rainier beer Washington state. No flavour now,reduced volume,reduced ALC%. Will not be buying anymore.
    Hope they fire their marketing department and it goes the way of New Coke many years ago.
    Note that local Tesco lite is now selling Archa..nice, cheap flavourful beer..pity about the vending hours restrictions.

    Don't be fooled, mate.
    Archa is a second cousin to Chang.

    it's all going the 'Hipster' Route, even Coke has a Green Brand!

    Chang always gave me headaches.


    I'm drinking a Leo and I can't even see a percentage (in English). I assume its 4.5%?


    OH! I found it, it looked all foreign cos it was upside down.

    it's 5%

    All Thai lager is horrible. This kind of debate is like listening to autistic tramps bickering over their favourite turd.

    Chang is a chemical solution, not a 'beer' as such. It's probably what homemade beer in prisons tastes like.
    The "Changover" is pretty legendary.

    Serving suggestion: Clasp Chang tightly, wearing fingerless mittens. Stand next to a burning oil drum with your similarly alfresco-drinking itinerant pals.

    ^^Thanks for conjuring that virtual image.

    Alternate setting, concrete bench outside a 7-11 accompanied by an oil stained bag of half eaten gai yang or moo ping. Soi dog juggling a wishbone, redirecting flies off its tail straight on to the numchim would be a bonus.

    Today I purchased Chang premium quality Thai beer in a brown bottle from a U.K.
    Tesco. Great deal 4 go 6
    5%
    Great for being nostalgic about all things good in Thailand on a rainy bank holiday.
