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.
