2.0 out of 5 stars How can we possibly know? 1 Mar 2013
Beer hops come in basically two types: bittering hops and aroma hops. Each of these categories contains many different varieties, giving differing degrees of bitterness in the first category, and an eye-popping range of flavours and aromas in the second.

There appears to be absolutely no information on this product whatsoever, other than the worryingly vague "beer hops". Well beer hops could mean a lot of things, you could be buying anything here, and you wouldn't know. Are they high quality hops or low quality hops? Are they really bitter or not so bitter? If they're aroma hops, what aromas and flavours do they bring? - are they nutty, are they fruity, are they citrussy, are they floral, are they earthy, are they spicy, are they pungent? Do these hops go well when making British beer, continental lagers and pilsners, or Belgian ales?

How could you possibly know? It doesn't tell you.
It's like advertising vegetable seeds and describing them as "ingredient vegetable seeds". Ingredients for what, for heaven's sake?!

If you're hoping to grow your own hops, I'd go to a specialist producer, like Castle Farm for instance (and no, I'm not connected with them - I just did a two second search on the internet). If you're just after a quick gift, and the person you're buying for isn't really into making beer from scratch, then it's a little bit expensive for seeds. If you're buying this for someone who likes gardening and wants lush climbing plants, then I guess it's probably okay.

A few seeds and a fibre pot. Nothing emerged from planting. Buy a pint instead of investing in this Secret Santa gift.
