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

katrinaez (1622) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Claiming to be hoppy but far from it. Very creamy, which seems to be the thing over here. Not bad but not as advertised based on what we are used to. Tap in London

Cask at the Henry Addington, canary wharf. Bonus tick, I thought I had had this beer already when I ordered it. Nice clear golden coloured pour with a lasting steadfast creamy head.. Aroma is a little hop resin grass and pine, little subdued English yeast esters. Some berry. Flavour is light grains, biscuity grains, little resin, grass, hedgerow hop. Palate is really nicely conditioned, moderate carbonation, medium full bodied. Really drinkable.
