COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional;
Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. Proper Job is dedicated to the 32nd (Cornwall) Regiment who stoutly defended their garrison during the Indian Mutiny in 1857-58. Throughout the siege the traditional "Sunset Ceremony" (beating the retreat and lowering the national flag) was ignored as an act of defiance to the mutineers. In recognition of a "Proper Job" Queen Victoria awarded the 32nd the honour

mR_fr0g (4745) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Cask at the Henry Addington, canary wharf. Bonus tick, I thought I had had this beer already when I ordered it. Nice clear golden coloured pour with a lasting steadfast creamy head.. Aroma is a little hop resin grass and pine, little subdued English yeast esters. Some berry. Flavour is light grains, biscuity grains, little resin, grass, hedgerow hop. Palate is really nicely conditioned, moderate carbonation, medium full bodied. Really drinkable.

Taste starts moderate sweet and rich malty with resinous and fruity following with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate.

Cask @Kings Arms, St. Just, Cornwall. 10-08-2014.
In short: hoppy refreshing ale.
A very refreshing ale, quite hoppy, herbal, fresh aromas and flavours, with nice creamy white head. After trying the bottled versions several times for years, this cask one was amazingly better.
