Boss Tom has brought a new golden era to Kansas City.
Looks like a dark golden version of your standard American pilsner, actually. The deeper hue gives it away that it's not standard issue, but the untrained eye might not immediately recognzie the goodness that is within.
Full malts are at the fore, with an underlying hoppiness that are somewhat difficult to find, they seem to pull the nose of the beer together.
Malty, with a creaminess that comes through as sweet - almost like honey. A spark of hoppiness awakens the tongue to everything else the beer holds.
Clean with a crisp bite on the tongue - slowly fades to reveal only a lingering bit of maltiness.
So easy to drink - a complete non-thinker. This is a great summertime beer. Best served with a deck chair and the warming sun.

Pretty basic, dark golden/amber color with sweet malt aroma from the wheat, a little hop and not much carbonation. Pours with normal head that disappears when you turn away from looking at the glass...
Malty aroma and no hop presence until tasted and even then, weak with no aftertaste.
Light mouthfeel--just above water and short of oily-- and bland flavor. Not much better than generic megabrew lager, IMO. Not impressed but not sent screaming from the glass either---smooth drinker for being slightly over 6% abv. Needs either a different hop variety or more of same. Perhaps a second malt of rye would also help relieve the "blandness". Just slightly better than OK. A Disappointment from Boulevard, who brew the outstanding "Smokestack" series.
