A combination of a Caerphilly and Brie style cheese when consumed young, it can be eaten at any age. It has a soft bloomy rind and a lemony interior. As it matures, it becomes paler with a brown tinge and develops a richer flavour. It won a Silver Award for Best New Cheese at the World Cheese Awards in 2000.
