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

On tap, half pint at The Argyll Arms, London. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, peach, flowers and caramel malt. 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. Pretty mild, very sessionable, but still great...

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.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
Tap @ the Taphouse Sydney. Restrained floral hops and caramel notes. Caramel malts are prominent, but there is quality floral and citrus hops intertwined throughout, ending in a medium bitterness. Might not be fashionable, but I love this English style of ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
