Strawberry-Mint Pale Ale
Source: Dor Alon
Recipe added: 07/16/99
This ale turned out to be really great. The ale has a very soft strawberry aroma and some fruit sourness.
After 3 months the ale has no mint flavor though you can
feel your tounge go numb after a couple pints.
Next time I'll add more mint leaves.
