St. Arnold Divine Reserve #16, for Leap Day

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve

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.

Style: Adambier/Gratzer
Availability: 12oz Bottles, 22oz Bottles, Draft. One-off release
Debut: 2/29/16

    I like my malt-forward beers to have a hint of malt. I’m just giving you shit, Reid. I know you meant hops. I just like your reactions to people busting your balls.
