Flour preferences

I have been a long time beneficiary of this site, having tried several of the recipes. 


I am am looking to develop my baking a little further and I was looking to get some advice on the different brands of flour that are readily available in the States. 


Is there a major difference in taste between a loaf of ciabatta baked using Unbleached AP Gold Medal brand versus King Arthur Or any other brands.

can always be discussed.  Bake two loaves using different flours and tell us what you think of them.  Are they different?
