Keen's Cheddar, a cow's milk cheddar from Somerset, England, has been made by the same family for three generations and is among England's finest farmhouse cheddars. The Keen family uses the West Country tradition of clothbinding and larding their cheeses and age the large wheels for nearly two years. Keen's Cheddar has a hard texture, distinguished grassy flavor, and hint of spiciness. Pair it with your favorite India Pale Ale, British or American. Thinking wine? Try Pinot Noir, Beaujolais, Syrah, Port, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, or Chenin Blanc.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
