For me I found a consistent odd flavour from a few of the strains I have tried just as @strange-steve says.. Maybe it is a palette thing? But for me every brew I made with them contain a profile which I am not overly keen on and is less clean. The Kolsh one I tried twice, one was decent the...

Agreed with alot AA says , I would say I have had two types I woudl say are gushers
1) - absolute fountains which go like mt versuvius - for me these tend to be unique to that bottle so in other words not clean and thats caused the isolated issue, these tend to rip up any bottle trub too.

I have seen so many clones for this mostly with styrian goldings in as well as fuggles and some cascade in!
I think this style you'd need a good or right liquid yeast. I think a lot of the clones I seen were burton, i think the best dry would be s04 but I just dont think you get great results...
I am not going to pretend especially with my life circumstances that I prefer teh ease of dry yeast..
Howeevr there have been a few styles where liquid has been the superior option and one I coulnd;t create with dry.
Personally I love London Ale III for ewxample and could never get that...
