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.

SB Oskarshamn, flaska. Svart och med mrk skumkrona. t det genombeska hllet. Brnd doft och smak. Med lgre alkoholhalt n imparna r den fin framfr brasan utan att man blir knckt av beskan. lillebror till Celebrator men utan dess elegans.

SkillsFactory (631) - ITALY - DEC 26, 2016
4,7% ABV. Nera limpida con riflessi caramello ed una schiuma beige di buona persistenza. Aroma tostato, leggermente affumicato, nocciola, con una punta di ossidazione e cartone. Al palato acidit tostata seguita da un lieve caramello coperto subito da legno, nocciola bruciata ed una nota di cacao, il tutto accompagnato da un amaro erbaceo comune in molte lager. Ben carbonata, corpo poco pi che leggero.

Donker gekleurd bier. Aroma is wat licht geroosterde mout en dat was het wel. Smaak is ook wat licht geroosterde mout. Licht bittere afdronk.

jasonbenali (164) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Pours dark black with minimal head and reasonable lacing. Aroma is citrus, coffee, milk, pine and hint of straw. Taste has some sweetness and a bitter short to medium finish with good body for the ABV. Im sure its a good example of Schwarzbier, but its not one of my preferred styles.

Taste: like the aroma, smoky/roasted malt, coffee, bit of dark chocolate, some dark fruit notes, slightly sweet but the finish is quite bitter. Somewhat thin, soft carbonation, lingering bitterness.
