I prefer a cleaner strain for nut brown ales, but of those two I would go with WY1028. Are those just what you have around?

I think you'd want a more attenuative English strain like Wyeast 1028 or WLP013. Either of those would be ideal for a nut brown ale

I just used wyeast British ale 1098 on a batch of English mild. It was exactly as expected, attenuation and lower fruity ester profile than some of the other English yeasts. Might be a good choice for you...
