Poured from bottle into an imperial pint. Best by 06/11/2011 stamped on bottle. This beer is named after Tom Pendergast, the infamous mob boss of Kansas City between 1925 and 1939.
A: Clear, golden, and highly carbonated. Thin off-white head dissapated fairly quickly.
S: Earthy hops with other herbal aromas.
T: Nice hops throughout with caramel notes. Hops and maltiness throughout, with the hops taking the front seat.
M: Medium-light bodied with nice maltiness throughout. Hops bitterness at the end. The hops is more noticeable than the malt but they play off one another quite nicely in taste and body. Active carbonation adds to the dryness at the end.
O: A great spring offering from Boulevard. This is one to look forward to as the green returns!

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.
