Budweiser is probably the most famous American beer. When beer appears in American movies or TV series it’s a Budweiser. Probably to show average American behaviour as this beer also tastes very average. The name Budweiser is derived from the German name of the Czech city of Budejovice (Budweis) and so it’s a Budweiser. Thank god it’s not coming from Hamburg 🙂
It tastes watery and sweet but it is actually not that bad. Still it can not be compared with the Original Czech Budweiser which has the same alcohol but tastes very different to the American Budweiser. And this is the gluten test result for this famous beer:
Originating country: USA
Brewing location: USA
Bottle size: 16 oz (approx. 470 ml)
Alcohol by volume: 5.0%

Sorry for the poor picture quality but I did not have enough light.
Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit
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: The test is negative. In this test Budweiser has less than 5 ppm gluten (or even no gluten). However, it is not a medical advice – please see my facts page.
