The current brewing location is unknown - unfortunately, AB InBev doesn’t seem to consider it important to provide consumers with full information on all their brands, or their provenance.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 6, 2007
Can. Golden colour, sweet alcoholic grainy aroma, which appears well in the flavour along with some maltiness. Sweet dryish bit uncomfortable finish. Oh man, those Scots.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Can... Clear, deep gold lager with a large, frothy/whispy, off-white head. Terrific retention. Smells like a pub. Tastes like a vodka boilermaker... strong and alcoholic. Full-bodied and oily with medium carbonation. Finishes bitter, alcoholic and downright harsh. Thanks go out to my friend Dai for bringing the can back from her trip to Europe.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
This strong beer has a golden color and a moderate head. The aroma has notes of malt and hops. The flavour is sweetish, malty with notes of caramel and the finish has a light bitterness. The alcohol flavour is too dominant - and it’s a plain and boring beer.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
440ml bottle from Tesco. Golden body with a white foamy head, quickly diminishing. Vapour of alcohol and water. Very one-dimensional in the taste profile with little less than malty flavoured water added by a strong alcoholic component. Short tail and lively carbonated. My last beer during 15 days in St Andrews. Next stop: Standing Order in Edinburgh [10.11.2008].

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of sugar, grains and alcohol. Sweetish alcoholic flavor. Light-bodied.

leaparsons (9100) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2004
Bronze with a loose head of white foam. Aromas are sweet then...nothing. This tastes of sweet water and is quite syrupy in the mouth. The alcohol is hidden somewhere - I can't really sense it. Ah, that "Old purple tin".
