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

Theydon_Bois (17944) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2016
Cask at the Victoria Inn, Salcombe, 28/04/16. Clear golden blonde with a well appointed off White head that stays for the show. Nose is pale malt, light floral hop, toasted grain, lemon rind. Taste comprises tangerine, soft bread, grain, lemon jus, straw. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with grassy hop bitterness. Ok sessioner but more akin to a golden blonde than an APA.

Fet som cask Noget af det bedste jeg lnge har smagt. Rigtig godt humlet, ikke p den der skarp humlet mde, men en god rund smag af bitterhed. Selve smagen er meget prget af det l nu en gang er lavet af, korn. Lige hvordan smagen af korn er, er lidt svrt at definere, men nste gang du kommer p landet, s besg en bondemand og tag en tur p kornlagret, og smag p kornet. Det er smagen. Humlen sidder i munden lnge efter hver slurk. Det at jeg har fet den serveret p restaurent lige ud til atlanterhavet, en varm sommerdag, pvirker jo selvflgelig ikke bedmmelsen

Bof. Nez plutt fruit, dominante tropicale, fond chlorophyllien. Bouche assez faible, trs verte, amertume timide, finale sche. Pas super intressante.

Inital taste on the palate is sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Looks like larger in the glass. May suit those who appreciate sweeter ales - a bit too sugary for my tastes

drjoeng (1044) - SINGAPORE - MAR 26, 2016
5.5%ABV. IPA. Tapped out gold. 6SRM. Nose is beery and laager-like. Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is honey, honey comb, wheat malt and pale malt. Hops are lightly bitter with some vegetal tanin. Clean finish. Good effort and was a pleasure tasting something new.

Enjoyed in Odense at C4. Pours hazy golden orange. Aroma is grassy. Resin and citrus is equally present. The taste is full of citrus and resin. Cloves and bread is also present. Very well balanced. Bitter, saying that casks dont tend to be this bitter. Nevertheless I like it. The bitterness and the balance which follows is eminent. Very good.

Strong and intense beer with a light sweet caramel and medium bitter malts aromas. Dark amber clear colour with a minimal foam. Medium bodied with a slick texture, a soft carbonation and a bitter finish. Very generous and loyal.

rekvium (425) - Odense C, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2015
From cask. Pours clear light amber with an off white head. Aroma of mango, tropical fruits, slight malty background, floral. Taste is light tropical, sweet background with light caramel malts, a bit floral and grassy, super clean and refreshing, very well balanced, more hoppy than the casks I normally get, very enjoyable. My kind of cask!!!
