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. Clear amber pour with a big foamy head. Smells like a cheaper lager with some caramel and cardboard. Taste is about the same. Not a fan of this.

Bottle shared by Drake at RBWG on Friday night at the roach motel bottle share. Thanks, Drake, for the Polotmavy! My only missing beer style until this moment. Pours a clear deep gold color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Lots of malts - caramel, Munich, wheat - with straw, spiced table crackers, and cardboard. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not bad. Glad I got to try the style finally.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a clear amber to orange hued body with a large, fluffy, slightly off-white head. Aromas are malty, caramel, tea, bready, marmalade. Pretty clean. A touch nutty (like a victory malt or something similar). Flavors are clean, malty, toasty, nutty (american munich or victory?). Bitter to balance with a dry finish. Clean. Lively bubbles, and dry in the finish. Medium bodied.

this amber hued beer smells both nutty and lightly spiced. definitely malt driven though some hops shine through as well. not too shabby for 1.25...

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.

Stubby 12 ouncer. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A sweet biscuit and honey nose. Pretty clean and tasty with light honey, leaves, caramel and a bit o’ hop bite. Good. Spicy at times.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has moderately sweet malt, biscuits, and a faint hint of citrus hops. The flavor is a pretty straight forward lager; clean, toasted bready malts, mild sweetness with lightly spicy hops. Decent for what it is, but not very exciting.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Lightly sweet malts, light earthy hops, faint bitterness, and hints of toffee in the finish. Decent.

10/26/11. 11oz stubby bottle. Clear red pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half but sticks and laces a bit. Very plain aroma of white bread, cream, a touch of caramel, and even a hint of soapiness. Sweet, malty flavor that lingers grainy with a touch of tart apples. Meh.
