It depends on the style. You have to pretty much use liquid strains to make a nice hefe or Belgian. That said, I feel that US-05 is pretty great for any kind of pale ale or IPA.

I love this yeast! If I don't need some sort of specialty yeast this is my goto yeast.

To my knowledge s-05, wlp001, wyeast 1056 are all of the same yeast strain. I have used 05, and 1056 both with great success and I almost always have a pouch or two of 05 in the fridge. I personally like to use 1056 instead because I feel like I have better control over how many cells I pitch by using liquid yeast and an appropriately sized starter. I almost exclusively use 05 for ciders and other small 1 gallon experiments. Some people have reported being able to taste a difference with liquid yeast coming out on top but I can not comment on this since I have never compared them side by side with the same beer.

I say "safe ale" and have not been corrected yet.
