Further test provided by Adam.
It’s a Dutch beer named Hollandia. One of the cheapest beers that can be bought over here. It’s a quite acceptable flavoured beer. In fact better than a lot of other beers that are more expensive.
Beer: Hollandia Premium
Producer: Swinkels Family Brewers (formerly Bavaria Brouwerij)
Originating country: Netherlands
Brewing location: Netherlands
Bottle size: 330 ml
Alcohol by volume: 4.7%
Ingredients: water, barley malt, maltose, hop extract
Test Kit: GlutenTox Home Kit
Adam tested with a threshold of 20 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 20 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. Even though this test is negative please note it is not a medical advice – see my facts page.
Not been on the site for a long time. Thanks Adam/Steffen. The Hollandia is a supermarket beer, Coles? Tried it pre coeliac days (2010) poor mans Heineken, but not bad. Will try it again, keep up the good work. Les
Hi Les, good to see you back here. Stay tuned for more tests to come. I am going to order new test kits soon. Cheers Steffen

Hello again Les
Hollandia is usually at Dan Murphy’s and BWS, at about $30/carton, here in Adelaide.
I agree it’s a poor man’s Heineken, but it’s still quite good.
