If you like Japanese food and want a beer to your Sushi or Donburi in your favourite Japanese restaurant then this test is for you.

Krombacher Hell Gluten Test

After I tested the Krombacher Pils back in May I now test their lager beer called Hell which means bright. Krombacher Hell is a decent lager, quaffable, malty and hoppy.

Brewing location: Germany

Coopers Pale Ale Gluten Test

This post is for my Australian friends and loyal visitors Adam and Les. It is hard to find Australian beer in Germany, even the most famous ones like Fosters and XXXX are difficult to get here. According to Adam the best brewery on a large scale is Coopers and luckily I was able to find a shop where I could get Coopers Pale Ale. This beer is not filtered as it is naturally fermented in the bottle, leaving some sediment. From experience I know that filtration is an important factor to reduce gluten so the gluten test result below is no surprise. The filtered ones Coopers Clear and Cloopers Lager are unfortunately not available here.

Beer: Coopers Pale Ale
Producer: Coopers Brewery
Originating country: Australia
Brewing location: Australia
Bottle size: 0.375 l = approx. 12 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.5%
Ingredients: water, barley, hops, yeast
Miscellaneous: -

Even though this test is positive please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.

Firestone Walker Pale 31 Gluten Test

Firestone Walker’s Pale 31 is a Californian craft beer coming from a brewery which uses a re-circulating fermentation system known as the Burton Union. I am not a huge fan of Ales but I quite liked the fruity smell and taste of Pale 31. It is hoppy and has a lingering bitter aftertaste. Carbonation is good, maybe a bit too fruity for me but generally enjoyable. And gluten is proofed very low, see below.

Beer: Pale 31
Producer: Firestone Walker Brewing Company
Originating country: USA
Brewing location: USA
Bottle size: 12 oz = 0.355 l
Alcohol by volume: 4.9%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops
Miscellaneous: translated from German listing the different malts and hops used

Augustiner Gluten Tests

This is my first ‘double feature’. I present you today two test results – both from the famous Augustiner brewery in Munich. Augustiner is actually the oldest brewery in Munich and always when I am in Munich I visit the famous Augustiner Keller which has delicious food and excellent beer. My favourite beer is the ‘Edelstoff’ (freely translated with precious stuff) with an ABV of 5.6%. Of course they sell the draught version in the restaurant but anyway I wanted to test the gluten content as there should be no difference to the bottled beer. In parallel I tested the Helles (classic Lager), which has less alcohol. Both are excellent in taste, quaffable and with a very good score on Beeradvocate: Helles, Edelstoff

Beer: Augustiner Helles / Augustiner Edelstoff
Producer: Augustiner Bräu
Originating country: Germany
Brewing location: Germany
Bottle size: 0.5 l = approx. 16 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.2% / 5.6%

Newcastle Brown Ale Gluten Test

Newcastle Brown Ale is one of the most popular Ales available. In the US it is among the Top 10 of the imported beer brands and #3 of the best selling bottled Ales in the UK.

Anyway, there are many Ale lovers out there and those who are sensitive to gluten might appreciate the gluten test result below.
