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

From cask at Castle Tavern, Inverness. Clear golden, uneven off-white head. Aroma and taste of citrus zest and lime marmelade. Bitter grape fruit and lemon in aftertaste. Good drinkability. A drinkable bastard between an English Pale Ale, a very moderate American IPA and a Golden Ale.

Not sure Iíd class this as an American Pale Ale. For me itís a very hoppy English ale. Anyway, thatís just semantics. Itís good. Iím assuming there are some American hops in there as itís notably citrusy. Smooth (from cask) and goes down very easily.

Cask@the longhorns, walsall. Golden amber beer with small head and good lacing. Aroma is malty. Taste is malts, dry and some citrus. This is another of yhem uncommon occasions when the bottle is better than cask. Ver disappointing.

Mild nutty aroma. Smells like sleeping hamsters. Golden amber in appearance. Quite fruity and leaves a hoppy taste at the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the first ales I really enjoyed. Good times! Refreshing and rather moorish. Yum.

Cask at The Haymarket. pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of citrus and biscuit. Taste is more of the same, nice hop presence. Not too bitter, caramel sweetness on the end. Pretty decent.

Lovely golden colour and pleasant hop aroma. The taste is very reminiscent of an IPA but has strong citrus notes which add another layer and works really well. Very satisfactory session beer, one to try.
