This is a very fine cheddar cheese imported from England (Dorset coast).
The cheese has a pale off-white color, not the usual yellow color found in US produced cheddar. This is not a “hard” cheese. It’s relatively easy to cut and a little crumbly. The cheese has a nice nutty flavor with a little bit of a tang. It’s not a sharp taste as might be found in a New York sharp cheddar, but still a very flavorful cheese. It reminds me a little of an aged Gouda, but not as hard. Similar to an aged Gouda you can feel (and hear) a few little cheese crystals crunch between your molars as you chew. Because of the pale color it’s difficult to see them in the cheese. I could easily get to like this. And I do.
