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.

Sort øl! Smag af lakrids, let humlet. Mørk lager når det er bedst. .......

SgtMattBaker (22) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2017
Black color, small tan head. Aroma of malts, bread and coffee. Taste quite balanced, little watery. Nothing special.

loscovar (259) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle from the brewery. For a dark lager, it’s good stuff, great aftertaste

jooilakon (169) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
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.

Lidt kedelig mørk øl uden det store særpræg. Lidt bitterhed med en smule sødme til at balance det. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Turtles (2653) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a medium size khaki head, rich lacing. Roasted barley aroma, chocolate and caramel. Light and smooth feel. Pleasant toasted and roasted taste with lots of toffee and chocolate. Dry and chalky bitter finish.

Piw (1127) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2017
Frisch gezapft. Klar und schwarz mit cremiger, mittelgroßer Schaumkrone. Aroma von Beeren. Leicht fruchtig. Spritzig. Leichter Körper.

MrOrla (3207) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2017
Can. Pours black with a tan head. Toasty, caramel, red berries. Bitter with loads of toasted malts, fruity, quite bitter with a dry end.
