I've made two batches with this yeast. One was an adjunct cream ale and the other was a blonde ale. It is a clean yeast and I'd suspect it's repackaged us-05. With the cream ale there is no flavor there, outside of the yeast, and that's exactly how it's designed. It's to test american lager and mexican lager strains (aka the strains the major players use with adjunct lagers). I'm not the biggest fan of us-05/1056 but that's more of a preference thing. Many others use the heck out of those strains with good results!
