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

From cask at Charlies. Pours cloudy orange wth a bubbly white head. Orange and towards grapefruity hops aroma. Very fruity hops flavoured, a bit flat even for a cask. Mild caramel malt base but dominantly orange/citrus fruity flavoured. Mild earthy touch, vague though. Bitter and fruity finish, quite dry into the far finish.

Blond color; creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, citrusy. It has a quite good malt flavor, with a very good hopping, aromatic, citrusy, a bit resiny. Strong ending bitterness. Very good.

<i>2008-10-22, Cask Conditioned at The Cove, London, 7-4-6-3-14=34</i>
Hazy golden color. Nice grassy hops aroma. Quite weak mouthfeel, with some good malt flavor (dry) and a good hopping, grassy and citrusy, but more powerful than aromatic. The final is well bitter, but missing caramel or better hop oils. Pleasant.
