This will be my third with 2035. One coming up on the calendar,  one in the fermentor,  one has been conditioning in the kegerator for a few weeks. I've sampled that one and I think it quite nice. Clean but not sterile. Subtle tartness. Works well in a low malty low hoppy beer. Will see how it does in a malt bomb all MO beer.

I'm glad you like it.  I found it very grainy and did not like the tartness.  To each their own!

Ok cool then I would be hitting my target if its not like bud

2007 is believed to be Bud's yeast......

http://www.mrmalty.com/yeast.htm

Wyeast seems to confirm this http://www.wyeastlab.com/hb_yeaststrain_detail.cfm?ID=26

Wyeast 2007 is the classic American lager strain. This mild, neutral strain produces beers with a nice malty character and a smooth palate. It ferments dry and crisp with minimal sulfur or diacetyl. Beers from this strain exhibit the characteristics of the most popular lager in America.

Maybe it's the power of suggestion, but I'm definitely picking up a Bud-like note 3 weeks into lagering on my hoppy Helles Bock. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it does stick out as a distinct American lager flavor.

The times I've used 2035 I thought it produced too many fruity esters.  I did a split batch CAP with 2035 and 2124 and much preferred the German yeast.  Let us know how the final products turn out.

Well my evil scheme on this one is to make a transition beer for summer time BMC visitors. A beer that might guide them into the world of beer with flavor

Is it like green apples?  I always get acetaldehyde out of bud.

I believe bud leaves Acetaldehyde traces in on purpose

To me Bud is always just too sweet. I don't know if that's the acetaldehyde or not.

I'll have to crack into another one tonight and see if I can pick that out specifically. Between the 7 day diacetyl/dry-hop rest and the large amount of Citra/Amarillo/Mosaic/Motueka I used I don't know if there would be much acetaldehyde left or whether it would be drowned in hops even if it was present.

I don't drink enough Bud to be able to say it was something specific to Budweiser, just that there was a hint of something that made me think in the vein of Bud/Busch/PBR/etc.

i have never noticed it to be sweet. i find it to be more crisp, which could be interpreted as sweet.  i still like plain bud on occasion.

I agree with you.  When we got to American lagers in our BJCP study group, I decided that for Bud I'd sit on my deck on a hot day and taste it.  Figured that would be the perfect setting.  I couldn't drink more than half a bottle.  It was just too sickly sweet.  I got a glass of water and decided I preferred that.
