Brewed specially for the 35th anniversary of "Det frie Gymnasium". Concept, recipe and graphics are done by the pupils of the school, in cooperation with Ølfabrikken. This is a single hop ale, using only whole leaf Cascade. To underscore the fruitiness of the English ale yeast and the hops, coriander seeds has been added during the boil. Ølfabrikken Det Fri Pale Ale is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers. Only available on tap.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Draft @ Lord Nelson, Cph. Very fruity and floral nose, soft hoppyness. Very hazy orange brew with a thick off-white head. Smooth flavor, very fruity and spicy, good piney hop flavor, and ends in a pleasant bitterness.

madsberg (11370) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2005
Draught @ Lord Nelsen: Dark orange coloured. Unclear. Small dense beige head. Sweet, fruity, light herbs and spices in the nose. Flavour is very fruity and quite spiced. Light herbs and light chocolate is notable. Is medium bodied. Is a little flat in the end and has some sweet bitterness, which has a long lasting. Is quite easy to drink. Is fairly well without beeing great. These guys at Ølfabrikken is really doing a good job IMO.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2005
[Draft at Lord Nelson in Hyskenstræde] An unclear dark orange beer with a dense orange head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy leaning towards lemon. The flavor is sweet spicy - with hints of coriander and caraway seeds, but also contains notes of yeast, on a slightly lemony sour background (probably the hops). The end is very dry spicy and grassy.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Tasted from bottle. Pours unclear orange golden and a small head. Full, sweet and buttery in the aroma with lots of malt and some spicy notes in the background. Tones of orange. Sweet flavor as well, malty and buttery with obvious notes of coriander and flower. Tones of toffee. A bit on the sweet side, but tasty and interesting. The coriander suits this beer very well!
