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.

2010-07-28. Dark amber with a small frothy white head. Flavour is malty, sweet with caramel accents and tangy notes, bit of an odd melange and a rough finish. Mild aroma, toasty character. Average palate. Meh. Cask at Victoria Arms, Oxford

Cask, Eldon Arms, Reading. Thin white head, clear copper body. Branded glass. Sulphur dominates the aroma. Plenty of sweet biscuity malt character, with hops also. Sweet and bitter to taste. Dry clean finish. Not exactly my cup of tea.

Hand pumped from the cask at the Whole Pig in Malmesbury, England. This was a clear copper color with a nice foamy off white head that lever vey rich lacing rings. . Nose of caramel malts and light floral hops Medium body and a very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is rich and contains nuances of fruit to go with the malts and hops. Bitter finish. Nice..

Alphadelic (2080) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Clingy, off-white cream of a head. Clean as a whistle brown. Lihtly metallic but mainly heavily malted shredded wheat aromas. No hop, no bitterness, no satisfaction. Nothing to it really. Malty, flat and super bland.

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009. Yep, another one of those obvious British beers, I’ve not rated. Deep brown colour, lasting cream head. Distinctive Wadworth yeast aroma. Yeast carries on throughout. Some toffee. Faint hop on finish. Great condition and mostly about the yeast character in this bitter.
