Funny name, serious cheddar. Pasteurized cow's milk is harvested from the 'lush Devon milk fields' and taken to the Tickler creamery in the U.K.'s Taw Valley. After the 40 pound blocks have been made with traditional cultures they are aged a full 18 months, during which an unusual depth of tangy, sweet flavor develops. The cheeky company so loves their award winning cheese that they specially created a beer that provides the ultimate pairing! Though you can't find it around here, a similar bitter blond ale should do the trick of balancing Tickler's nutty sweetness.
