This tasty and attractively veined cheddar cheese brings beer to your plate. Sliced thinly and served with apples and crackers, it is a seasonal delight. Look for it in the spring as an elegant and sophisticated addition to a party or as an easy but unusual appetizer offering.

According to Cahill, maker of this cheese, "Marion Cahill made Irish Plain Porter Cheese from pasteurized cow’s milk and Guinness-brewer Porter since 1759. It is blended to create a visually dramatic mosaic pattern which is the most attractive part of the cheese other than its flavor."

It does not disappoint!
