I have a number of problems with this so called gluten free beer.
First, the test they to detect gluten, the ELISA test, is known to give false negatives for anything made from barley malt, and where enzymes have been used to simplfy proteins. So the test is not reliable for testing beer.
This product can not be labelled as gluten free in Austalia, as here anything made from a malted gluten containing grain, is excluded for this very reason.
Second, the allowable levels of gluten in food and drink labelled as gluten free are much higher in Europe than in countries such as Australia.
There are now a number of beers made from malted and unmalted gluten free grains throughout the world, and more under development.
These beers are getting better, and as experience of working with these grains grows, they will improve much more.
In the World Beer Cup, there is now a category for gluten free beer (made from gluten free grains), so this could be interesting.
