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.

Bottle; last style to tick off; gift from my wife. Poured a copper amber type color with a whitish head. Aroma of caramel, NW hops and toffee. Some sweetness, fruit and caramel; touch of NW hops with some fruit and earth/pine. Decent finish. I did it!

11 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. Brown and clear with a small, dissipating white head and minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, toffee, bread, caramel, pine and light spice. Similar flavor, malty and smooth with light bitterness and a medium body. Crsip, clean mouth feel with a lingering finish. First polotmavý rating.

Dude, kinda bummed cause I love the stubby Full Sail bottles. Can’t get into this one. Strong copper taste but felt flat to me. Might take me a while to get through the 12 pack.

Little stub bottle pours with a clear copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet bready notes, caramel malts, a touch of creamed corn and then a bit of nuttiness. The taste comes across as similar with caramel drizzled slices of Roman Meal bread mix with a slight corn flakes note and the nuttiness riding around in the background. Overall this works pretty well.

Pours copper with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel, grain, sweet bread, and a touch of mint. The flavor is smooth and drinkable. Caramel and bread dominate. Hints of fruit linger and a clean finish. Enjoyable

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Light clear amber color. Sweet caramel malt up front. Christmas like spices..nutmeg, coriander, allspice, etc. Very smooth and drinkable..hence the name I guess. Offputting aftertaste of molasses and syrup. I wouldn’t reach for it again.

Pour out of hand grenade bottle, finally the last of the types rated, at least until its changed again. Clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, slight earth, grass, hints of slight yeast in there as well, touch of grain. Taste is a mix of lots of caramel, hints of grass, bready, and doughy notes, slight yeast in there, finishing sweet. Eh.
