Default Strawberry Pale Ale

CAn anyone refer me to a recipe for or any ideas towards creating a smooth seasonal strawberry ale?
I have been wanting to surprise my girlfriend with this, and of course pleasing my palate as well.
I really appreciate the input, thanks!

^this

Blonde really lends itself well to strawberry, especially since it is easy to lose the strawberry flavor in complex beers. I just did a strawberry blonde and ended up using about 1.5ppg of strawberry and it came out with just the right hint of strawberry flavor to not overtake the rest of the beer.

My favorite strawberry beer was a Maris Otter/Willamette SMaSH that came out great.
1# frozen strawberries per gallon in secondary for a week.
