Cask at the Gunmakers. Lovely deep golden color. Big citrus, floral nose. Light but firm bitterness backed by real citrus-hop flavor. Very quaffable and refreshing. Nothing revolutionary here, just a damned fine and drinkable hoppy ale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London on 7th October 2009. Slightly hazy gopld with white head of foam. Strong hop aroma then exquisite and intense hop kick with delicious grassy herby hop notes. A long satisfying dry hoppy finish. Given the St Austell beers to which I have become accustomed, PROPER JOB really took me by surprise as it had the flavour of a good Dark Star IPA! Excellent!
