Imagine a cheese with the pleasant qualities of cheddar but with a funky finish- you've got Amber 16. Washed in Amber Sun Ale from 16 Mile Brewing Company in Delaware. The bright orange rind has a very slight bloom while the paste is a slightly funky and bitter with a long and sweet finish.
This award-winning, interesting and creamy washed rind is the perfect introduction to stinky cheese. It is clean and savory with a smooth and pliable texture- not too pungent but still earthy and interesting. It is hand flipped and washed every other day using a liquid of water, salt, and the cultures geotrichum and brevibacterium linens
This strapping gentleman is best when you take his top off. No- seriously- just cut off the top before it warms up and spoon it out. It has a very loose and spoonable paste that is woodsy, lactic, and vegetal with a coating palate and a very long finish.
