WLP023 Burton Ale Yeast

This is one of the best beers I have brewed so far. It is a modified version of Jamil's ordinary bitter from Brewing Classic Styles. I can drink this all day. And I have. Mmm, mmm! I have never really had a commercial example other than Boddington's, but I think this is infinitely better.
