During my recent trip to Japan I had the chance to try locally brewed beers. I bought a bottle of Kirin Heartland actually because of the nice bottle. Taste was average, malty with a good finish.
Beer: Kirin Heartland
Producer: Kirin Brewery / 麒麟麦酒株式会社
Originating country: Japan
Brewing location: Japan
Bottle size: 0.5 l = approx. 16 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops
Miscellaneous: ABV and ingredients according to internet research as I wasn’t able to read the label
I tested with a threshold of 5 ppm. The limit of detection depends on the number of drops taken from the extraction solution, please find some more information here.
Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten above 5 ppm. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible red test line on the right of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. The blue line on the left test area ( C ) is a control line and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Please don’t take any of my test results as a medical advice – see my facts page.
