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

Leighton (14752) - 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 (1494) - 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.
