Default What is your bitter ale?

Hi,
Recently I have been brewing lots of bitters. Mostly ESB's but I really would like to be able to get an Ordinary Bitter and a Special Bitter going.

It's really to get a quaffable and sessionable beer.

I often use Safale S-04 or Wyeast 1028.

Do any of you guys prefer a strain from these labs over the others.?

I use Wyeast 1968 London ESB in my ESB and am pleased with it.

I use WY1318 mainly too. I also have had good results with WY1968 and WY1187.
