A hard, English, close-textured cheese with a mild flavour that develops as the cheese matures; it is at its best when about six months old; when it is softer and less acidic than Cheddar. It is one of the oldest British cheeses, but now more commonly found flavoured with sage and called "Sage Derby". See 'Sage'
