Warmer = banana?
Cooler = coves?
In addition to what DB said, pitch rate and aeration also play a role in the ester/phenolic profile the yeast provide. There was an article somewhere regarding pitch rates and a tasting panel preferred the German Weizen that was under-pitched (with other yeasts/beers they usually preferred brews made with 'recommended' pitch rates). I recently made one on a washed cake so I probably over-pitched it and while it's's not as good as the Weizen that made that cake.
Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.- Beer Advocate
