Default impact of differnt yeast on brew

I am preparing to order a Big River Brown Ale from midwestern and was wondering what difference the offered yeasts have on the brew. There are four : London Ale Wyeast 1028, Munton's 6 gm dry yeast, London Ale Activator Wyeast 1028, and White Labs British Ale 005. What do you think?

The two wyeast strains are the same, they say the activator doesn't require a starter but I typically just get the propagator pack fr a couple bucks less and make a starter. The White Labs strain is similar to the Wyeast, though I've never used the W.L. strain before. Most dry yeasts are good to use, and you don't need a starter, but I've never used Munton's, I usually use Nottingham for a dry English yeast

The Munton's will probably have the highest FG and give you a sweeter finish. Then 1028, with WL005 being the driest.
