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

Vladivostok (237) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
A little more astringent than most brews from St. Austell and noticeably more flavoursome than Tribute. Pale, citrusy with a solid body and good level of bitterness. Quite decent.

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2012
cask at Charlie’s in Copenhagen. hazed gold body with a fine bubbled white head. dry and musty lightly pungent noble-like hop nose. grassy dried leaves and a rustic but light cheese and citrus flavor is superbly clean. mild oiliness and pillowy natural carbonation work really well with the flavor profile. has a lovely tenderness and softness throughout. a touch of raw cereal grains and semi-sweet citrus surround it. quite good.
