Maybe a Pacman strain? Wyeast suggests 60-72 ferm temp and it attenuates / flocs well. That would also explain the "you've been asking for it!" comment.

"Sterling" sounds like a marketing touch

Yeah, I guess I'm wanting that little sales pitch that says why I should buy this. Given the variation of english yeasts available, it would be helpful to know what it is similar to and what the differences are.
