Prom Country Brewer’s Gold: Review
Superb washed rind cheese, using cow’s milk from Wattlebank Park Farm, beer from Loch Brewery and Prom Country’s formidable cheese making skills. From the very start this feels special. While still in its packaging there was something about Prom Country Brewer’s Gold that make you know your are in for a treat. There was some give in the cheese even when holding is gently. On opening the packaging there is a strong aromas of fermentation and sweaty socks. This is the real deal washed rind cheese. The orange-ish rind has been washed in beer. The rich savoury cheese taste is a delight with beer-like flavour infused in the lush creamy mass. There’s a good range of textures too with the rind breaking to reveal a gooey outer paste and firming further in to a fudge-textured centre.
It’s my cheese of the month already!

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing
As it is a washed rind cows milk cheese try a fuller aromatic red such as a bigger pinot or nebbiolo, examples being Stargazer Rada or Vinea Marson Nebbiolo. Or try one of Monceau’s fabulous non-alcoholic pear or apple kombuchas in the style of cider. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
