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

AshtonMcCobb (2674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2012
On cask at the Kenilworth. Pours golden, slight haze with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grassy and citrus notes. The taste has soft ripe grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a lovely clean finish. Overall, a well made pale ale.

ALLOVATE (2436) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
Cask, handpump @ The Holly Tree Inn, Exmouth, Devon.
Produces up a sunny orange amber, sparkling, with a thin, creamy white pad atop. Pleasant, bright, fruity hop nose; pear drops, apricot, grapefruit, pineapple and honeydew comes to mind, a real fruit salad mix atop just a hint of pine needles. Lots of fruit esters on the palate; doughy, rounded and supple mouthfeel with a little residual spritz to give it height. The fruits of the nose meld with sundrenched grains and a hint of camphor in back. Becomes vinous in the swallow like a sweet Chenin Blanc before dropping off moderately bitter. Nice mix of flavour and it’s balanced to a ’T’. Do not know why it is listed as an APA, but hey don’t fight the system. Very nice. A solid session ale.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, sturdy foam head. Looks great. Zesty lemon, straw and fine dough in the nose. Nearly perfect flavor, light to medium sweet with sun-kissed straw bitterness, light dough, mild citrus. Wonderful balance. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Superb condition. Sweet finish with mild dryness, light lemon zest and rind, faint grass, straw, modest dough. Here, now, this beer is near perfect stuff.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
First tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a creamy white head. Citrusy hops are evident in the short pleasant aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a juicy citric note of pink grapefruit and thick cut marmalade. Citrusy hops compliment the malt well with a dry bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly bitter but not too astringent with pithy grapefruit peel detected in the palate. A decent session APA.
