COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zeitgeist is an ideosyncratic alternative black lager It seeks to recreate the spirit, attitude and autonomy of an age gone by. Its inspiration is found more than 200 years ago. Zeitgeist takes an age old classic, a forgotten masterpiece and gives it relevance and an avant-garde edge. Zeitgeist encapsulates our view of contemporary society, yet simultaneously endeavours to improve it. There is too much conformity. Not enough thought, not enough individualism, not enough alternatives. Our military line ups represent conformity to a higher authority, be it political, brand, celebrity, religion or trend. The subjects in our dystopian landscape further seek to repress their identity through uniforms and masks. Yet underneath their body shapes reveal cracks of personality and individualism. Zeitgeist is about identity, non-conformity and idiosyncrasy. It is a collective, an idea, a movement. It is about giving up ownership of itself to those who care enough to listen.

I en tid dr trender sprider sig ver, mellan och igenom folklagren som ngsligt fljer den samflla strmmens minsta vink fr att inte sticka ut, dr det ska tas pulled pork och kras elbil fr glatta livet innan det blir otrendigt, r det intressant att nn gr nt s otrendigt som mrk lager. Och ganska bra ocks. Aromen domineras av choklad och smaken r hmtad ur boken ver hur tjeckisk lager ska presenteras. Inget som sticker ut t ngot hll och ganska trivsam i sin otrendighet.

Aslely (22) - Lovund, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2015
Siden kaffe er langt fra mine favoritter s var dette kun for smake. Tydelig lukt av kaffe, smaken er en kombinasjon av kaffe og mrk sjokolade, slettes ikke feil for de som liker denne typen, men for min del er det nok med en smaksprve.
