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.

330ml bottle. This is a great example of a black lager. Dark in appearance with an off white head. Smells of cocoa powder and coffee. Mouth feel is thin but not watery. Taste is of bitter hops and malt - none of that overly sweet flavour you get with macros and also not too carbonated. A very sessionable and enjoyable beer.

Kolanvrinen, kohtalaisesti vaahtoava olut. Tuoksu tumman maltainen ja paahteinen, siirappisen karamellinen ja limppuinen. Maultaan tumman maltainen, paahteinen, ruislimppuinen ja jopa aavistuksen hedelminen. Kiva pieni katkero hilyy taustalla. Keskitytelinen suutuntuma. Loistava maitokauppaolut!

Tap at Brewdog Soho. Mild flavour. Nose of roasty malts and dark fruit. Nice balance of sweet with a bitter finish. Very tasty.

minihame2 (524) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Black, slightly translucent body, thick tan head. Looks a lot like cola aside from the head. Fairly strong aroma of malts, syrup and sugary sweetness with a bit of hops in the background. Taste is a bit dry and somewhat watery with some bitterness. Smooth, tingly mouthfeel. Weak body and medium carbonation. Its alright but not great.

From draught. Pours black, with slight cream coloured head. Pleasant dark beer. Slightly carbonated. Smokey/malty aroma. Flavour wise, hints of chocolate and malts. Nice.
