Wadworth have been brewing 6X in their Devizes brewery for over 80 years. This delightful copper-coloured beer has a malty, fruity nose with a restrained hop character. The same characteristics emerge on the palate but with more intensity,leading to a lingering malty finish. The beer is full bodied and distinctive but with a high drinkability, ensuring its position as one of the South of Englandís most requested beers.
6X is brewed from 93% pale malt, 4% crystal malt and 3% cane sugar. The bitterness units of 22-24 are obtained from Fuggles hops (85% of total) in the copper and Goldings hops (15%) on the hop back plates. Colour rating is 28.

But I guess it just wasnít going to work selling a beer called 6X, which sounds like itís meant to be strong, but definitely isnít.

Aroma is toffee, nuttiness and malts. The flavor is nutty malts, light fruit and a mix of tart and slightly in the finish.

Brown with an orange hint. Smaller head that settles to a dense lid of taupe colored bubbles and a heavy sheet of lace. Aromas of caramel and light fruit. Dry malts and traditional English yeast scents. Light caramel sweetness is quickly erased by Dry malts and dry herbal hops. Mildly earthy. Traditional English ale.

Sampled from a can. Copper colour with a white head. Slight aroma of malts. The taste is of malt, slightly sweet with hints of molasses. Earthy, but not particularly bitter, hop taste. This is a magnificent English bitter, one of my pub favourites. Not very strong, but well-balanced and highly drinkable.

Pour is a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is a decent mix of sweet molasses and earthy malt. Flavor is again a sweet malt with a bit of dark honey. Kinda watery all around but this is kinda spot on of a beer you would get in a traditional English pub. Malty and low alcohol makes it a decent beer.

McTapps (5847) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Pours out of the bottle ( purchased at the local Asda in Eastbourne) in a light hazy amber-red colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of cookies and roasted bread. Taste of mild hops, bread, caramel, biscuits, cookies, straw and nuts. Easy and smooth to drink, yet nothing extraordinary nice. Good for a warm summer night.
