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.

Drake (14109) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear orange with a large frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted grainy malts, spices, apple, nutty notes and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, berries and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Pretty drinkable.

On tap at Barcade Jersey City. Some chocolate and a stouty characteristic to it. Not a bad one. Cross-style.

deyholla (12445) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bread and grain notes with not much of a hop profile. Flavor is similar with bread and grain throughout with a crisp finish.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Back to all styles rated. Lol. Light amber pour, white head. Malty aroma with a hint of crackers and hops. Sweet malty flavor up front, lager flavors, pale hops. Refreshing and pretty easy to drink but nothing spectacular.

2.4
BVery (11390) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2012
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.
