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

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.

snowdog140 (58) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
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.

Cask at The Flag, Watford on 27 April 2013. Poured a clear, deep golden colour with a rocky white head. Aroma was mild citrus and grapefruit hops, mixed with biscuity malt sweetness. Good amount of tropical fruit and grassy hop on the fore, mixed brown sugar. Finish was slightly lacking depth, but maintained some pine and resin.
