Beemster: Farmer's Choice

 Beemster is a Dutch company that specializes in Gouda.  Their Farmer's Choice is aged 6 months and according to some online reports is the bestselling cheese in Holland.  Here are my notes from our tasting: 

Very deep golden color. Smells strong, smells like it will be acidic, a little undertone of well used cheese room in hot summer,  just a very slight undertone. Very creamy, acidic isn’t as bad as it smells.  Much creamier and milder than other gouda's I have tasted.  And then Andrew ruined it but saying it tasted like high-end velvetta.  On that note, it would probably make really good mac & cheese.
