COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Session Fest is a Czech-style strong lager (gotta love the Czechs!) called polotmavé or literally "light dark or semi-dark." Brewed with 2 Row Pale malt, Munich malt, Caramel malt and Wheat malt, and hopped with a blend of Glaciers and Cascades, Session Fest has a medium-to-full body balancing candy caramel and full malt flavors that are underscored by a spicy hoppiness that provides a nice perfume with citrus and pine overtones and a long clean finish.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Stubby bottle. Clear amber with a tiny head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with some light fruitiness and bread dough. Flavor is doughy/grainy malt with a very faint hop bitterness. Medium body with weak carbonation. Ok beer but not too drinkable for me.

BoostIPA (1108) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a clear light amber with almost no head. Aromas of toffee, watery Czech hops. Taste is similarily watery and weak. Not expressive at all like the real Polotmavy I had from the Czech Republic. This is a fake attempt at a knock off Polotmavy. No.

GTAEgeek (1063) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle at Taco Mac, Perimeter. THWG! Pours dark brown, with ruby hues, and a medium beige head. The aroma is caramel malts, cardamom, and some spicy and resinous hops. Sweet and malty flavor, with some nicely balanced pilsener-esque hoppy bitterness. Medium body, lively, and a little chalky. Overall, this is a nice, warming, spicy, and surprisingly complex beer. Very nice.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Pours a clear gold with a small off white head. The aroma is bready malt and spice. Thin mouth feel with a sweet caramel and spicy finish. Decent.

ttoadee (550) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Clear & light amber, frothy but quick head. Carmel and chocolate roast malt in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is continues the roasted malt ride, not too dark. Finish starts sweet, but dries out the back. Balanced for the alcohol level.

Thin tan head thats short lived with little lace left behind.Bright, copper/amber colored brew. Nose of grains and a light grassiness with a hint of sulfur. Med/light body with a lightly prickly carbonation, touch oily.Almost dry malt flavors, caramel, grain and a faint bit of spices. Lightly sweet finish with no bitterness. Ahhhhh yes, Polotmavy, Yum!

WillRunForBeer (418) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours medium amber with an off white head that quickly recedes to the edge of the glass where it clings. Scent is caramel malt, dark fruit. Alcohol in the nose. Taste is sweet, just a touch of pine hop and a mineral finish.

11 oz bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Polotmavy tick! Pours a clear amber color with a small head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a mix of pale lager, light fruity candy and very faint citrus. Taste is sorta bland. A light fruitiness added to a pale lager. Ok overall.

11 oz bottle. Clear amber with a pocked white head. Nose is very muted grain and apple juice. Medium light, soft and bready but still crisp. Taste is apple, citrus pith and hay.
