Hops

The most beautiful flower in the world! That wonderful aroma is what give beer its distinctive nose! Hard to believe that we in Britain managed without the hop until the late Middle Ages - all sorts of other flavourings for beer were tried - it seems such an integral part of a pint now. Taken outside the Red Lion at Stathern, Leics.
