Very good!
I used this to make a Nut Brown and pitched onto the yeast cake for an ESB. It gives a great dry and malty flavor and works like a beast. My bucket lid blew off overnight on the second ferment! Enjoy!

Nice early, but patience is rewarded
I've used this to make bitters at 1.041, 1.044, and 1.052. The best bitters were fruity and drinkable early, but the stronger beers improved markedly at the month mark.

The taste is flawless on my palate.
After reading some of the other reviews, I just wanted to say my bitter finished out at 1.010 after the week @ 74 degrees after the primary @ 67 degrees. The taste is flawless on my palate. My tasters agree!

Great attenuation
Given time (3 to 4 weeks for me) this strain seems to consistently drop my final gravity to 1.010-012 range (OG 1.047). Clean and clear, great for bitters!

Even better than I expected
I bought this yeast after reading reviews here about it and it lived up to expectations and then some. I'm drinking a dark mild right now brewed with it and it's delicious. Wonderful malt flavor and mild fruitiness. Perfect!

Great strain, agree it should be available year round.
I brewed a light Porter and I couldn't believe how prominent the malt flavors came through with such a light grain bill. It was an immediate hit with everyone and I wish this yeast were available all the time.

Used for a Holiday Brown Ale with Fruit
I got the results I had hoped for. The description was right on. I used this in a Holiday Brown Ale with dried cherries, cranberries, and prunes. The yeast really brought forward the fruit flavors.

Great yeast
I highly recommend this yeast. High floculation. I used this for an English IPA. Clean flavor profile.

Perfect for ESB
I recently brewed a partial-mash ESB, using this yeast for the first time. Did 1 week primary, 1 week secondary with E Kent Goldings dry hop (~72 ¡F for both; OG: 1.053, FG: 1.010). Despite a huge krausen in the primary fermentor that never settled, the beer clarified very well in secondary. Carbonation/bottle conditioning only took about 1 week, and the finished product looks and tastes great! This yeast provides that classic English taste and mouthfeel that I was going for (the mouthfeel in particular is really impressive, almost spot on for replicating a cask-conditioned ale). Very nice and subtle cherry notes, working really well with the English hop profile.Overall, highly recommended!
