Butterkase ('butter cheese' in German) is a semi-soft, cow's milk cheese moderately popular in Germanic Europe, and occasionally seen in the rest of the cheese-eating world. Although primarily produced in Germany, this Butterkäse is produced in Wisconsin.

As suggested by its name, Butterkase has a buttery flavor and appearance. It is often described as mild, partly due to its brief aging time. The softness and mildly salty or acidic flavor is reminiscent of Muenster or Gouda cheeses. The texture of Butterkase is smooth and creamy. Butterkase is often sliced and added to rolls and sandwiches or melted for cooking.

Butterkase is light in color, ranging from white to light yellow-orange. It is commonly found in a loaf shape convenient for slicing. It can also be found in a smoked variety.
