Wyeast's West Yorkshire strain of yeast is known for balance. While producing the characteristic British profile full of fruity esters with some nuttiness, its dry finish keeps these notes in check, making for beers that are delicious and quite pleasing to the palette. It has been said by some to have a slight mineral note that is common in some English and British style beers. Cask-conditioned beers and traditional British beers will benefit from this yeast, as the flavors produced by the yeast lend to the fullness of such styles. A great choice for English pales, bitters, browns and stouts.
