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. Pours ruby with a short beige head. Flavors of sweet caramel and light earthy hops. Similar flavor. A little bland but smooth and drinkable.

thinnish looking copper pour with little head - aroma of lightly roasted malt and light grapefruit - tastes of caramel and apple. A bit thin on the palate.

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2013
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.

Can't complain about this one. Nothing terribly special about it, just an everyday drinkable beer for the winter season.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Aroma is malt forward. Pours a reddish amber with a rapidly disisapating white head. There was more taste to this beer than I expected. Toasted malts, hints of nuts, grain, and a nice touch of spice in the finish. Medium body with minimum carbonation. Overall, I was surprised . I really enjoyed this beer.

Syzzer (644) - Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2013
This is a weak confused beer with lack of integrity and identity. There is a tinge of bitters, tinge of yawn. Light brown in color weak white head. Mild carbonation. Initial impression is of taquila, very little to smell. Strange & weak 4.85 BD

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2013
A nice holiday red. Honey, hops, and pine. Soft, smooth palate. As drinkable as their lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2013
11oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium brownish-red with a slight bit of chill haze. Just a small white head fading to some splotches after a couple of minutes. A lot of grass in the aroma along with some toast and caramel much like the regular Session lager with a little extra roast. The aroma translates well into the flavor with grass/hay up front followed by some light toast and caramel. There is a little sweetness and a thicker body than a typical amber lager might have along with some light bitterness. Overall, a tasty amber lager and one that, as the name would suggest, is quite sessionable. One to pick up if you see it around.

Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Thin head, dark amber colored body, clear. Smells like licorice, barnyard hay and strawberry. A weird combination, but it’s nice. Taste has a solid malt bill with a balance of medium bitterness. Roasted malt stands out with a barnyard straw flavor. Crisp and lighter bodied, but the high carbonation takes away a bit. An excellent red lager.
