Very clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitiness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This strain makes a wonderful "House” strain. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler 60-66°F (15-19ºC) fermentations. Normally requires filtration for bright beers.

Review Comments: I used to dislike Wyeast, but I've taken a shine to it lately. The smack packs are the bomb and it exactly like having a big starter when it comes time to innoculate your wort.
