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.

Can 330 ml with ABV 4.7 % from Drinker’s Paradise, Kentish Town. Aromas of dark malts, some fruitiness, subtle coffee and chocolate. Fluffy beige head and black body. Watery taste with dark malts and notes of caramel and chocolate. Disappointing.

mt_hall (201) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2017
Can. A dark brown, cola-coloured beer with a large, foamy, light brown head. Lager yeast and dandelion & burdock on the nose. Smooth and easy to drink, with a relatively light body for a dark beer. A nice dryness and a just a touch of coffee and chocolate.
