Even the names of these two types of cheeses sound similar. While the Semi-hard cheese Maasdammer comes from South Holland, the Almdammer, originates from GOLDSTEIG in Bavaria.
As for the Maasdammer, the large maturing holes and golden yellow or bright yellow colour are typical of the Almdammer . Its flavour is aromatic and mild with a subtle hint of nut.
Green meadows, a blue and white sky, beautiful mountain pastures! All of that is Bavaria, and that is why the Bavarian version of “Maasdammer” was given this traditional name.
