Have you ever had Anchor Steam Beer? That uses that San Francisco Lager strain. If you have had it, you'll notice that it's slightly different than your typical lager, so if you go into it expecting results exactly the same as commercial examples you've tried you may be a bit disappointed. However, using one of the California lager strains walker mentioned will get you very close (IMO) and nothing else short of temperature control and the proper yeast strain would get you closer.
A Kolsch yeast will be better than any other ale yeast, but to my tastes you can definitely tell it's an ale. If you can keep your temps around 65 the San Francisco/California Lager strain is the way to go IMO.
