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

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 Pint from cask at The North Star. Lightly hoppy IPA, easy drinkable. Pale yellow and soft aroma

Cunningham (8410) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2017
Nice tasty and refreshing even as a cask ale. Lost a little bit freshness. But very session able.
Hazed deep golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing. Ok hop intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a soft carbonation level. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Citric, mellow malty, mild fruity and some pine in the flavor.
[Cask at Edinburgh in Liverpool - Wavertree, England]

Salian (132) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Golden colour with a creamy white head, more reminiscent of a Manchester bitter than a hoppy ipa. Bready, malty and a bit of floral sharpness it’s an ok commercial beer but needs more bite to make it stand out.

tommann (3949) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Cask at the Crafty Pint, Halesowen. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is bready tea. Taste is bready to start and a creamy hop finish.

p0urmeac0ld0ne (208) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - AUG 22, 2017
a phenomenally hoppy brew for a british cask ale. an absolute pleasure to drink, especially in a traditional pint glass in a olde-worlde cornish pub! not one to miss; a credit to british brewing, and to the st. austell brewery.

ansalon (4123) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2017
Pours clear golden with a moderate frothy white head. Aromas of rye bread, floral and herbal notes, light fruity notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Kebabman (14) - Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2017
A beer that I used to like but now seems bland. My taste buds must have changed after trying far better beers. More bitterness needed for me.

Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 19, 2017
Draught at the London Inn, Padstow. Aroma: grapefruit. Appearance: clear light gold, 5mm. of fine froth. Palate: medium-bodied and oily, light carbonation, very astringent at the finish. Taste: locally popular but too astringent for my liking.
