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

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 (426) - 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!!!

Several pints with Mal and John at the Black Bull in Gateshead. One of my favourite bottled beers toned down alcohol-wise to session strength without any loss of flavour. In fact, a tad more florally appetising and refreshing. Whats not to like?

jjsint (2745) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Cask at the Empress, Cambridge. Dark gold, clear. Soft ring of white head. Light aroma of spruce and tropical fruit. Bittersweet but slightly unbalanced taste. Finish is bitter without the flavour to back it up. Not great for an APA.
