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

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

On cask at the Kenilworth. Pours golden, slight haze with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has grassy and citrus notes. The taste has soft ripe grapefruit. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a lovely clean finish. Overall, a well made pale ale.

jmgreenuk (4074) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2014
Cask at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is honey fruit citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with an earthy, sweet fruit hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a light smooth fruit bitter finish. Compared to the bottled version there is less hops and a whole lot more fruit. Very drinkable.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Cask at the Roebuck, Nottingham. This pale ale unsurprisingly features aromas and flavours of citrus and soft fruit. I enjoy the American hops. It is very hoppy for its strength but somewhat unbalanced; it’s not quite as good as Dark Star’s APA or some of the better ones from America, like 3F Alpha King or Piece Full Frontal.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2011
Cask at The Oxford, London. Deep golden color. Sweetish aroma and flavor with grassy, citrusy, perfumed and flowery hops, bitter enough. Honeyish also. Nice summery ale bringing flower fields to mind.
