Do you like cheese?

This is a general question. It means all cheese (in general!). Do NOT use "THE".

Do you like THE cheese?

This is a specific question. It means "the cheese that we are eating" or "the cheese in that shop".

Would you like some cheese?

This question indicates NOW. This is an offer.

Remember, when you offer something, it exists! It is real. You say "Would you like some cheese" and NOT "any cheese" because you offer something real!

 

AlanSpeak. ESL. EFL. Do you like...? Would you like some...?

"Could I have a sandwich with brown bread, please?"

"Yes, of course. Would you like butter?"

"No, thanks. Just a little mayonnaise."

"What would you like in it?"

"Could I have some ham, cheese, tomato and egg, please?"

"Yes, of course! (...) Here you are. Anything else?"

"No, thank you. That's all."

"OK. You can pay over there at the check out."

"Thanks a million!"

"You're welcome. Enjoy your food!"
