With almost 50% of the votes Warsteiner was the clear winner of the recent poll. Warsteiner is not one of my favourites and in Germany it is considered as a “ladies beer” because of it’s light and rather sweet taste. But it is on 4 in the ranking of Germany’s best selling beers so it can not only be ladies who buy this beer. It is actually better then it’s reputation and sold worldwide. I’ll give it a try more often, also because of the result of the gluten test:
Beer: Warsteiner Premium Verum
Producer: Warsteiner Brauerei Haus Cramer KG
Originating country: Germany
Brewing location: Germany
Bottle size: 0.5 l = approx. 16 Oz.
Alcohol by volume: 4.8%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops extract
Test Kit: Imutest Gluten-in-Food Kit
Test result: There is no indication of the presence of gluten. According to the instructions there should appear a clearly visible pink test spot on the left of the test area ( T ) to indicate the presence of gluten. But this test is negative. The pink spot on the right test area ( C ) is a control spot and indicates that the extract/sample is suitable, the test has been performed correctly and all reagents are active. Even though the detection limit in this kit is very low (1-2 ppm) and the test is negative please note this is not a medical advice – please see also my facts page.
