This is the first test from Martin. Erzquell is a local Pilsner from Bielstein – a small town east of Cologne.
Beer: Erzquell Pils
Producer: Erzquell Brauerei Bielstein
Originating country: Germany
Brewing location: Germany
Bottle size: 0.5 l
Alcohol by volume: 4.8%
Ingredients: water, malt, hops, hops extract
Miscellaneous: Fun fact on the back label: When the word ‘Prost’ appears which simply means Cheers the beer has the optimal drinking temperature. See the second pic below.
Test Kit: Imutest Gluten-in-Food Kit
Test result: The test result is negative. 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. 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 is negative please note this is not a medical advice – please see also my facts page.
Thanks for test. Re the label change for when cold enough, we have a beer in Australia – Carlton Cold, when it was first produced it had a similar label, changed colour to blue when chilled enough. Merry Christmas.
