I like it. The main thing I like is it is easy to use: starts fermentation fast when rehydrated (I haven't tried pitching dry), clean tasting, easy to clear with gelatin. No hint of diacetyl or other off flavors ever.

I have used it 3 times. All 3 have had similar results.

Without a side by side comparison I am having trouble distinguishing it from US-05, except maybe a subtle fruity ester flavor (pleasant flavor, not quite Kolsch flavors but good).

This time I mashed at 153F. 74% AA. Beer finished at 1013. Not terribly crisp. That may be fixed with a lower mash temp.  I made another batch with similar grain bill with same yeast once before with mash temp at 151.5F and got 79% AA and finished at 1011. According to my notes that time the beer had a nice crispness.

I used it in my SABL clone attempt and liked it there too. Mashed at 155F and got 70% AA. I really like that beer.  Not the right yeast for an exact clone but the beer tastes great.

I fermented at 60-62F all 3 times I have used it.

Yeah it's more of kolsch and alt yeast then it is us-05. Different ester contribution.

Sunset, coming through the window.  Nothing more.  Crazy florescent though.  Lighting can do crazy things to beer.
