Someone posted here awhile back that they had a beer in the fermentor that was pitched with Northern Brewer's Wyeast 1945 Neobritannia ale yeast, and said he would post how it turned out.
Maybe he did, but I didn't see it. Has anyone used this yeast, and if so, how did you like it? I like that it is an English strain but not overly fruity, and pretty attenuative. Sounds like the ideal English strain to me.

Might have been me? Not sure. It's a great yeast, although a little on the neutral side for an english yeast. I've used it in my standard best bitter and an APA and both were great. That's the test for me. It's not as good as 1469 though... Still, being a year round yeast it could be the one for me. Most of my beers are cask English styles and hoppy american beers. It works well for both.
