The name of this beer comes from a story about a group of farm-labourers who thought that the reflection of the moon in a pond was a lovely truckle of Lancashire cheese, and tried to rake it out but ended up falling in! This reddish-brown beer has a strong, fruity aroma accompanied by a rich, sweet flavour. First brewed in 1950.
