On tap. A clear copper body with a thin white head. Mild retention. Aroma had a nice caramel malt base with some notes of toasted grain. A nice blend of citrus and floral hops. Flavor was mostly caramel malts with a nice hop bitterness. Some light grapefruit notes. Full mouth feel and a dry finish.

Tap. Cloudy orange, thin head. Aroma of pear, caramel, light butter and mild floral hops. Taste starts semi sweet, and moves on to dry, with a hint of dank hops on finish. bytemesis (8772) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 2, 2014

Bottle from Whole Foods Bowery. Been wanting to try some Port Jeff for awhile now. Pours muted cloudy orange. Nose of tropical fruit and slightly dank. Tastes of pears, citra hops, basement, caramel, earth, and some malt. Peppery and bitter finish. Carbonation is nice and this is easy bomber to put down. Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Received in a BIF.
A: Pours a golden orange color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.
S: Pale, slightly sweet malts. A little cereal graininess to it. Grassy hops that a little on the skunky side.
T: Same as the nose. More of a cereal grain malt with some definitive skunky flavors to the hops. Minimal dank and grassy flavors come out as well.
M: Light bodied, medium carbonation with a solid drinkability.
O: A little too skunky in the hop department for me. I needed more assertive malts to make this a true English style pale ale.

The flavor is caramel, citrus. Orange in color, white head. The finish is sweet, citrus hops. Medium in body. Good. notalush (5895) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap at the brewery - probably my least favorite here (but everything was high quality, so still not bad) - slick, slightly oily mouthfeel - lightly bready malt throughout, an earthy, whiskey note - quite buttery on the tail end, which turned me off a bit - finish is some bright American hoppiness - decent brew. theisti (4156) - Kansas, USA - MAR 15, 2013
22 oz bottle purchased at Big Z Beverage in Huntington, New York. This is labeled as Port Jeff Brewing Company Schooner Pale Ale, and is marked as 6.5% abv. The pour is hazy orange copper golden with a one inch tan head that is quite lasting. There are visible particulates in the beer. The aroma is light chestnut, soft pear fruit, a bit of floral hop all on top of a nice backbone of caramel malt. The taste has quite a bit of the fruit sweetness, again its pear, with a bit of apple, then moves to floral hops, and finishes with caramel nutty maltiness. The palate is medium to light bodied, low carbonation level, and the sweetness and fruit linger a bit longer than I would have liked. Overall, an easy drinking beer. blipp (9501) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light pale malty, some nutty and fruity sweetness, and floral hops. Well balanced and drinkable. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Tap at PJ tasting room - packed with malts. Lightly nutty overtones with some sweet malts and peach juice and other fruity notes. Finishes with a citrus note. Not bad.
