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

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2012
Cask, handpump @ The Holly Tree Inn, Exmouth, Devon.
Produces up a sunny orange amber, sparkling, with a thin, creamy white pad atop. Pleasant, bright, fruity hop nose; pear drops, apricot, grapefruit, pineapple and honeydew comes to mind, a real fruit salad mix atop just a hint of pine needles. Lots of fruit esters on the palate; doughy, rounded and supple mouthfeel with a little residual spritz to give it height. The fruits of the nose meld with sundrenched grains and a hint of camphor in back. Becomes vinous in the swallow like a sweet Chenin Blanc before dropping off moderately bitter. Nice mix of flavour and itís balanced to a íTí. Do not know why it is listed as an APA, but hey donít fight the system. Very nice. A solid session ale.

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

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 Iíve come across that I like they are usually flavorless and bland but this is nice and hoppy with a good balance. Itís a perfect session beer.
