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.

11 oz "stubby" bottle. Pours a orange/copper color, thin head, no lacing. Aroma is mostly a smooth caramel malt. Flavor is caramel malt, some grassy hop notes. Simple, drinkable, decent. Plus the stubby bottles are kind of fun.

altonbrownd (4594) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle from Bethesda Food and Beverage. Nice amber body with thin head. Nose is malty, weak, watery, some spices. Taste is malts, caramel, brown sugar, faint. Creamy texture. Gets sweeter in the finish. Decent enough.

Old rating. Copper color. Caramel malty with aluminum, spice, and earthiness. Have to question old tasting notes once in a while.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Draught at the brewery in Hood River
beautiful amber color, bright. Gentle malt character, lightly sweet, also more evident because of the low bitterness; it has some fruity esters.
Clean, correctly brewed.

andrewje41 (1750) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle poured from the uniformed session shorty. Much thanks to Matt for helping me track this down. Pours a penny copper with a fading foam head. Subtle bready malt aroma. Flavor matches with a light spiciness to it. Not a whole lot to say about this one. Not offended by any flavor here, but I don’t love it either.

after4ever (6925) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2015
12-oz stubby. Thanks, M! Really appreciate the tick. Pours a crystal clear and very dark amber with almost no head or lace. Stale aluminum, caramel, toast, and artichoke nose. Creamy light body with very little carb. Toast, caramel, artichokes, and sesame oil on the mid palate. Long earthy, slightly acrid finish.

DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy copper pour with nose of caramel malt, hops, florals. Tastes caramel malty, with vinous fruit, hops, and bready finish.

MadIndian (2663) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Bottle gift from SJ. Aroma was a nice candy sugar. The rest fell a little short for me. Body seemed thin, but some nice notes of citrus, caramel malt and honey. Finish was citrus, spice and Earth.
