I've used it in two different beers, to good effect. One was an IPA fermented at ale temps (66F or so) that turned out nicely -- very clean, and attenuation in the upper 80% range. The other beer was a "sorta lager" CAP. I was only able to get the ferment temperatures down to 55F or so, but still ended up with a clean, easy drinking CAP.

It's a decent yeast. Aerate well, and pitch a large starter for best results.
