I've not tried 002, but I have used 023 plenty of times and have compared it to other English yeast strains including dry and liquid. I think 023 is very unique in it's ester profile. I've used the same recipe with different yeasts, including S-04, Windsor, and White Labs Essex Ale Yeast. All were good (except I wasn't real fond of the Essex Ale Yeast), but none compared to the ester profile of the 023.
I also prefer it fermented in the lower half of it's temperature range. I've found some fusel alcohols in the higher end, but the lower end still keeps a good amount of pleasant fruity esters without the fusels.
