Default Yeast for English Dark Mild

What yeast do folks like for an English Dark Mild?

I was going to use WLP005 but I'm also considering WLP037 Yorkshire Square, although I've never used it before.

WLP005 is my go to English Yeast.

I used it in a Black Cat clone and was very happy with the beer.

Default Yorkshire Ale yeast

You couldn't go far wrong with either... but I would use the Yorkshire Square yeast, if available. Just seems appropriate for a nice dark mild. (Just had a bottle of Black Sheep's Riggwelter Yummm!)

Wyeast 1968/WLP002 works great. You wanna use a yeast that doesn't over attenuate so you have some mouthfeel left in the beer, IMHO. Can't comment on those other yeast as I haven't used them, though.

+1 on 1968/002. You want a less attenuative yeast and this is a great choice.

I used WY1968 in one, and Nottingham in another - far preferred the 1968.
