Bitburger Pilsner is another famous German beer – at least here in Germany. It is a decent beer and due to smart marketing amongst the Top 3 best selling brands in Germany. Because of the partnership with the German Football Association it could increase sales last year. The colour of Bitburger Premium Pils is pale yellow, it has low carbonation, a light taste and a nice bitter aftertaste. In general good and quaffable.

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.
