Off Kilter

Off Kilter is semi-soft cheese washed in Pike Brewing Company's "Kilt Lifter" Scotch Ale. This results in a French-style tomme with a pungent, earthy and malty finish and slight stinky aroma, typical of washed rind cheese. The pale straw interior has a supple, fudge-like consistency and is dotted with small "eyes" or holes. When young, flavours are milky fresh, tart evolving to become malty, nutty and meaty.
