St. Arnold Divine Reserve #16 makes a very special debut on 2016’s Leap Day.
#16 is know as Adambier, a historic style popular in Dortmund, Germany. Adambier is malt-forward, with a hint of hops. St. Arnold Brewing Operations manager ran point on this recipe.
DR16 is a full bodied beer with layers of complexity. There is a deep, rich maltiness that is balanced by the artful use of smoked malt. While the smoke character is present, it is more subdued than you would find in a rauchbier. There is a subtle Noble hop aroma and a slight caramel character that becomes more prominent as the beer warms up. The Kölsch yeast adds a light fruitiness.
Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #16 will be available in 12 ounce and 22 ounce bottles, as well as draft.
Availability: 12oz Bottles, 22oz Bottles, Draft. One-off release
