    Caffè Romano Porter - 4.8%

    Zestspresso, our take on a Caffè Romano – a shot of espresso served with a slice of lemon. This porter has been zested with lemon and cold steeped on whole coffee beans.

    A complex and intriguing porter. The surprisingly light body is carried by rich, robust coffee notes and a heady, unmistakable aroma of lemon, slicing across your palate with zingy freshness. It shouldn't make sense, but it does!
