    Karankawa Pale Ale

    I did a search and Karankawa did not show up on the forum. I have the Karankawa Pale Ale kit coming from AHS and was wondering if any of you guys/gals have tried it. It is supposed to be an American style pale ale... just wondering. I am really looking forward to my first beer kit. Bill

    Hillbilly Bill from West Virginia
