A traditional Czechoslovakian lager strain, Urkel allows for a nice balance between hops and malt. This strain can be slightly sulphury during fermentation, but it cleans up during lagering. Fermentation at the higher end of the range will produce a beer with minimal sulphur and a light ester profile.
