Did You Know Cheese Can Be "Subtly Earthy"?

I’m anything but a food snob. Food is fuel for me, not a culinary experience to be savored. I’ve posted about my active-person’s diet, or about gorging myself in Reno. I’d just as rather go to In n’ Out Burger as to a really fancy restaurant. I’m sure my ways will change, but for now, nothing epitomizes my attitude better than the descriptions attached to wine and cheese. A "premium cheeses" catalog came in the mail today and lists all their cheeses with descriptions. Did you know cheese can be:

  • Semi-soft
  • Pungent
  • Smooth
  • Meaty
  • Mild
  • Mildly musty
  • Subtly earthy
  • Floral
  • Herbaceous
  • Dense
  • Complex
  • Beefy
  • Vegetal
  • Firm
  • Fruity
  • Luscious
  • Mineral tang
  • Hard
  • Crystalline
  • Beautifully balanced

Please people, this is cheese! Can someone tell me what the fuck "subtly earthy" cheese tastes like?
