Not going to give the flavor of an English strain. Other then that it will be a brown beer.

Agree, this yeast ferments out very dry with no estery flavors or aromas. Good for high-gravity beers, highly flocculant. I have made a San Diego-style double IPA with it most recently, and the flavor is almost austere. Malt comes through to a fair degree, and dry hopping aromas are very prominent.

Cool as you know the yeast will eat the molasses if you are not able to keep it at a cold temperature. With all that flavor Sd will be fine.You could just use a pack of us-05 and save some $$ since the yeast is not going to contribute much to the flavor.
