Cooked and pressed, Nena has a firmer texture and a slight tanginess up front. Nena is aged in Kenny's white cave, and as it begins to develop a white wooly rind, they start washing that back with various ales, sometimes from local breweries when they can make a beer run in time to make the cheese. Look for limited releases with special ale-washings from various breweries.
