Low attenuator
Apparent attenuation generally around 60-66%. A few brewers have reported getting it up to 70%, but I never have been able to. Reportedly this strain does not metabolize maltotriose.
I think it would be great for Ordinary Bitter, maybe even Best Bitter if you're careful with temps and don't use crystal malts; but it hasn't made a good ESB for me yet. 
Lallemand's instructions call for attemperating the rehydrated yeast before pitching; apparently thermal shock can cause it to get weird. Maybe I haven't been doing that part right.
It does give a nice flavor profile, so if you don't mind the residual sweetness it can make really nice beers.
