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

Pours a cloudy, but good looking beer. The foam is thick and creamy. The aroma is citrus and apples. It is a very drinkable IPA without any outstanding taste or bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at pump house, Brighton
Slightly hazy burnished gold, tight white head with pleasing cascade citrus and dusty fields of barley on the nose. Medium bodied, light carbonation, pleasing dry bitterness balances butter shortbread malt for a long lightly pithy finish. Top stuff.

The only cornish beer I’ve come across that I like they are usually flavorless and bland but this is nice and hoppy with a good balance. It’s a perfect session beer.

imdownthepub (11929) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Banbury. Pale gold with white head. Had this after watching banbury United beat local rivals Brackley Town 1 - 0, and a real proper job it was too. Clean citric grassy hops, dry and bitter, light pale malts, enjoyable, particularly whilst celebrating.

bhensonb (12949) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Light amber color with a white head. Somewhat citrusy aroma. Medium body. Very mild carbonation. Very floral and fruit hop flavors - but the light malt sweetness is not obliterated. Truly refreshing.

Cask from Cahrlie’s Bar at Københavnske Øldage. Light beer, with a wonderful hoppy finish. Grass, dryness, a fine session beer.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Cask conditioned Handpump Crosse Keys London A golden beer with a tightish white head. Good welcoming citrussy hoppy notes in the aroma. Hoppy and bitter in the mouth too. Orange and grapefruit feature. Perhaps needs a bit more malt to be really good but good use of good hop combinations. Score 3.8
Subsequent ratings scored 3.5, 3.2 and 3.7. Average becomes 3.6
