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

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Feb 2011 at the brewery. Golden. Big, brash, fruity spicy hop aroma. Leafy, delicious and inviting. One of the most drinkable refreshing pints in England.

Aug 2010: @ George Inn, Croscombe. Light amber colour. Powerfully fruity (berry) hop aroma. Very refreshing. Fruity, almost tea-like in the finish. Properly hopped! 8-3-8-4-16 = 3.9

olsvammel (4237) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2010
On tap at Horniman at Hays in London. It poured a clear golden liquid with a minimal white head. It had a hint of hops and some flowers. Fairly mild. Smooth mouthfeel with a light body. A very mild ale, but at least it had a hint of hops in both smell and taste. I wouldn’t have mind a bit more flavour. But it was easy to drink and did the trick without impressing. One of the better real ales I tried during my trip.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2010
I wasn’t convinced about this beer. I felt it was too hoppy for what I wanted at that time at least. It’s more in the vein of American IPAs, without the carbonation. I prefer the more gentle British ales. Nice to try nonetheless.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2010
@ The George Inn, Croscombe. Clear bright amber with nice lace. Flowery and fruity aromas reminiscent of an APA. Balanced with sweet malt character. Very good.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - AUG 27, 2010
This is by far the best interpretation of the classic English IPA I’ve had. The aroma is floral with hints of earthy notes and just pleasant happy. Flavor adds the aroma with a nice medium

jercraigs (8670) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
2010-07-27. Crisp dark yellow, small creamy white head and great lace. 3+ Flavour is mild with pleasant bitterness throughout, modest lemon accents, muted pale malts. 6+ Mild aroma has slight lemon character, lemon seed, straw and slightly odd pale malts. Smooth creamy average palate. Refreshing but pretty mild overall. Cask at Eagle and Child, Oxford
