COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional & bottle conditioned.
Originally brewed as a special to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Nelson’s victory at Trafalgar in 1805. However, production of the bottled version and, occasionally, the cask has continued.
This premium bottle-conditioned ale has been uniquely brewed using our own Cornish Gold malt. Locally grown barley is traditionally malted using a special kilning process which develops a deeper intensity of colour and flavour than ordinary barley malt. Blended with both Styrian Golding and Cascade hops, the result is a deep bronze ale with a delicious rich biscuit flavour and a wonderful spicy aroma.

Clear reddy amber body with little head. Citrus in the aroma with underlying caramel notes. Taste is very similar if a little oxidised, carbonation ok, very drinkable.

Sti stracepponi, beccata ossido; formaggio vecchio, luppolo straandato. Non è così che doveva essere. Peccato, la Proper Job m’era pure piaciuta.
