This was brewed as a tribute to the local hot rod club. Bottled may 08

Pours copper with a finger of beige head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Bready & toasty malt

T: Caramel, toffee, & breadyness up front along with leafy hops & apricot. Dryness & toasty malt assert as this warms, along with orange slices. Finishes toasty, dry with a hint of toffee & citric hops

MF: Medium body with low carbonation & good balance

Drinks easy, not enough fruittyness to raise this up as a great ESB example, but very solid
