Change and Singha beer are both 5% here strong enough in my opinion.

LEO is my preference, but I think love is a very strong word

I agree that Leo is as good or better than the other Thai beers and generally cheaper so I'm happy to drink it. Mind you I always have a few bottles of Fullers London Pride in the cupboard for when the withdrawal symptoms get a bit too much.

Interesting what you're saying about Leo. My son was a fan of Leo until the recent re-branding - can't stand the taste any longer.

Not drunk it for a few months as I'm out of country, so it'll be interesting (possibly in a negative way) to see what it tastes like when I get back.

I haven't seen any reviews ( or complaints) about Archa beer. I haven't had one for about 3 years but it was refreshing and a good change of pace from other Thai beers when I did. It used to be very inexpensive as well. Pete :cheers:

I agree, although it's not often served in Bars or restaurants so normally drunk at home

If you drink beer how it's supposed to be drunk, that is something for the working man to knock the sharp corners off your life, Leo is a perfectly adequate tipple .On the other hand, if you're one of those craft beer hipster types trying to make a statement, it probably won't suffice.

I NEVER drink Chang its alcohol content years ago was too variable. I went onto LEO and have never wanted to change - Draft Leo is even better!!

depends on whether you drink for the alcohol content or the flavor.

Archa is my beer of choice after Chang changed their recipe. As DB said, it's not often available in bars - so I drink Leo when I'm out. The nice thing about Archa is that it's cheaper than the rest, and (in my opinion) has a cleaner taste than the others.

Both in the UK I drink Stella or SanMiguel in Thailand I used to find Chang a bit too strong in the heat of the day not a session beer. Used to give me quite a bad hangover.

I don't mind Archa but hard to find near my house in Surin province.
