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.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
@ Royal Oak, Widcombe. Dark golden-amber. Caramelly-toasty aroma with light yeast fruitiness, but also hints of pedio. Toasty character, with light, fruity tartness.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
@ the "other" Royal Oak" in Bath on Pultney Rd. Red/amber/copper. Scant lace. Aroma is slightly flawed with a possible infection, smells sour and metallic. Some acetone in the flavors too. But, has a very good malt character similar to the Bass Ale profile. Should revisit.

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..
