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

Inital taste on the palate is sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Looks like larger in the glass. May suit those who appreciate sweeter ales - a bit too sugary for my tastes

5.5%ABV. IPA. Tapped out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is beery and laager-like. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is honey, honey comb, wheat malt and pale malt. Hops are lightly bitter with some vegetal tanin. Clean finish. Good effort and was a pleasure tasting something new.

Affichée en pression comme étant une IPA titrant à 5,5%. Mousse qui s’estompe rapidos, carbo modérée, léger goût de pomme et de résineux bien agréable. Bière sympathouille.

Enjoyed in Odense at C4. Pours hazy golden orange. Aroma is grassy. Resin and citrus is equally present. The taste is full of citrus and resin. Cloves and bread is also present. Very well balanced. Bitter, saying that casks don’t tend to be this bitter. Nevertheless I like it. The bitterness and the balance which follows is eminent. Very good.

Strong and intense beer with a light sweet caramel and medium bitter malts aromas. Dark amber clear colour with a minimal foam. Medium bodied with a slick texture, a soft carbonation and a bitter finish. Very generous and loyal.

rekvium (422) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2015
From cask. Pours clear light amber with an off white head. Aroma of mango, tropical fruits, slight malty background, floral. Taste is light tropical, sweet background with light caramel malts, a bit floral and grassy, super clean and refreshing, very well balanced, more hoppy than the casks I normally get, very enjoyable. My kind of cask!!!

Several pints with Mal and John at the Black Bull in Gateshead. One of my favourite bottled beers toned down alcohol-wise to session strength without any loss of flavour. In fact, a tad more florally appetising and refreshing. What’s not to like?
