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 England’s 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 wasn’t going to work selling a beer called 6X, which sounds like it’s meant to be strong, but definitely isn’t.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in UK. Dark slightly sweet but not overpoweringly ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (4756) - 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.

MichaelAwesome (4750) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from AASDA in Eastbourne shared with McTapps.Absolutely average and dull with quite no real aromas beside a bit of malt and some nuts. Boring, easy to drink, uninspiring and quite tasteless.

ianwelby (567) - SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2014
Amber beer with a thick frothy head and a light nutty aroma with a touch of caramel. Flavour is nutty as well with a tangy fruit edge. Finish is a touch sickly-sweet but it’s decent enough.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark copper with a slight white head. Aroma is malt with a hint of floral/fruity hop. Med + body. Flavor is slightly roasted malt with a fair amount of fruity/spicy hop. Decently bitter. Works for me. Oh to be in England!

Bottle. Pours gold/red/brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is malt, fruit, nuts, and caramel. Pretty good and easy to drink.

I didn’t enjoy this one. Try Swordfish, version of 6X mixed with rum. Tastes much better.
