Another vote for Nottingham.
How do S-04 and Nottingham compare?
I've never used S-04, but I bought some recently with the intention of doing a comparison.
I don't get "bready" from Nottingham. I do find it to have more esters than you might expect as it is usually described as a "neutral" fermenter. Mostly, for me, that's been expressed as a tartness on the finish. I'll get a similar tartness from some commerical English ales, but not as pronounced.
My hope is that I'll like S-04 and use it instead of Nottingham. I've been disappointed with most of my lower gravity beers that used Nottingham but it seems to be a champ on the bigger beers. And I don't get the tartness. Maybe it ages out?
