Big thanks to OHLRangers.
A: Pours a nice light amberish hue with a light white head.
S: Peach, peach, and more peach. Very peachy with subtle notes of fresh cream. Light wheat notes, a touch of tart.
T: Very much peach mostly sweet, but there is a very subtle tart element in the taste as well. Dried apricots make an appearence with a nice milky creamy quality. Fruity, malty, creamy, good!
M: Rather light to be honest, sort of snappy carbonation.
D: Not bad, I really liked this one.

Bottle dated 8/20.12. Thanks to Adam for this one!
A - Medium yellow/orange in colour with some darker amber hues in the middle. A small layer of white head formed and immediately disappeared.
S - Peach is present up front without being overwhelming. Some other citrus notes are present as well, specifically grapefruit. Bready malts are present in the background with lighter caramel aromas.
T - Peach up front that is definitely front and centre without being over the top. The sweetness from the lactose sugar is present next, followed by lighter bready malt notes. Not overly sweet or overly peach-y. The flavours come together very well. ABV is slightly warming at times but overall is exceptionally well hidden.
M - Medium body. Creamy. Light carbonation.

Short's peaches and cream pours a hazy orange colored body with a dirty white head. The head is thick and the retention is substantial. Lots of lacing left behind on the glass.
Great aroma; I spent a good bit of time sniffing this one before I started to drink it. Fresh peaches mix with something reminiscent of a peaches and cream candy. The background keeps things interesting with just a bit of tartness from lactose.
The flavor starts with fresh peaches, which once again is followed by a flavor that is reminiscent of a peaches and cream candy. Amidst the peach flavors, a solid amount of lactose tartness is noticeable, but it definitely is in a complementary role. Next comes just a hint of woody flavors, and the finish has a substantial amount of pale malts.
The body of this beer is smooth and creamy, but I hesitate just short of calling it full bodied.
There is no trace of alcohol in this beer, not even around the edges or in the finish. I was pretty surprised by the size of the ABV actually. This beer is both unique and tasty.

Bottle # 331 of 820. Thanks to Deuane for bringing this back from MI for me. A capped 750ml bottle poured into my Selin's Grove 10th Anniversary wine glass. The ale appears a hazy, particle filled deep amber color with a healthy looking two fingers of light ecru colored foam. The head lingers for a bit, leaving a thin lace in it's wake. Nose and flavor consist of sweet, yet tart and slightly sour peaches, peach puree, peach cream of wheat cereal, evaporated and/or condensed milk sweetness, brown sugar coated peaches, a pleasant bitterness comes through in the finish. The lactose coats the mouth and tongue. Notes of apricot brandy come out as the ale warms. Very smooth and drinkable. The 9.5 ABV is nowhere to be found. This one is holding up quite well. Thanks again D!
