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.

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

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.

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.

MacBoost (1563) - 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 (1536) - 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 (2244) - 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.
