    Cheese is aged until it matures.

    I'll rephrase my question. What would be the difference between aged cheddar and mature cheddar?

    It would seem that what Americans call "aged cheddar" Britons call "mature cheddar".

    'aged cheddar' is not a term recognised by the British Cheese Board - British Cheese Board - Cheddar. It's probably a term thought up by some marketing whizz-kid.
