I had an inkling to try and create an ale that was similar in taste and aroma as a Maibock lager... but without using any colder fermentation or pseudo-lager techniques. This yeast was the last missing piece I needed. Definitely should be a year-round strain. It fermented perfectly at 70deg F. No off-flavors or diacetyl. Also flocculated very well, leaving a nice clear beer. Left me with a finished product that had a nice, clean malty aroma, very pleasant malt taste, and little in the ways of "ale-iness" overall. Great great yeast indeed!!
