I kegged my Clara Bell batch 4 days ago, filling a couple of Corona
bottles also, as I usually do so that I can check clarification
progress. You all may remember the Clara Bell batch as the one with a
pound each of cara pils an crystal malt with 7 pounds of light
unhopped syrup. A total of 1 1/2 oz Hallertauer hops was used in the
batch. Well, last night I couldn't wait any longer to taste it. So
even though it hadn't yet fully clarified my wife & I opened one of
the bottles, and it was _delicious_! It can best be described as an
Oktoberfest-style beer (Papazian describes these beers as expressing
themselves with a malty sweetness) even though it was brewed with an
ale yeast.

I will probably make this one with two oz. of hops the next time, but
this batch show promise for being wonderful as-is.
