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

This is by far the best interpretation of the classic English IPA I’ve had. The aroma is floral with hints of earthy notes and just pleasant happy. Flavor adds the aroma with a nice medium

Mild nutty aroma. Smells like sleeping hamsters. Golden amber in appearance. Quite fruity and leaves a hoppy taste at the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snowdog140 (23) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Lovely golden colour and pleasant hop aroma. The taste is very reminiscent of an IPA but has strong citrus notes which add another layer and works really well. Very satisfactory session beer, one to try.
