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.

KeefOz (833) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2013
Tasted 17/4/2013 draught "The George Inn", Sandy Lane, Wiltshire. Poured a clear honey brown with a thin bubble line for a head. Head retained OK but did not produce any real lace. Aroma-less. Taste was slightly bitter to start then increased on back of tongue. Light body. Moderately long bitter finish. OK.

Cask. Copper amber colour, thin white head and fruity yeasty aroma. Taste is caramel malt with fruity nutty notes and a light dry bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied, low carbonation. OK bitter.

wimpyjoe (3468) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
A regular cask bitter, not too high on bitterness and certainly a session ale. Copper coloured without a head.

On cask at JDW Market Drayton - Copper body with a nice white head. Aroma is not very powerful, but with enough effort you can just make out the fruity notes. Somewhat bitter taste and finishing with a pleasant bready taste at the end. Obviously, this is easy drinking, but, as others have said, this beer lacks any real complexity.

Cask at Sweeney and Todd, Reading UK. A well balanced beer to go along a nice pie in a jolly rainy day.
