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.

harrisoni (13215) - 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.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 28, 2009
Hand-pumped at the George Inn Backwell. A clear copper-brown ale with a small off white head that nevertheless provided decent lacing. Nose of caramel malts and light floral hops. Noticeably fruity on the tongue with hints of marmalade and a gentle malty hop finish. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Pretty good but not outstanding.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2008
Cask, various locations over the years. Never had a pint and wanted another. Pretty much a real ale of last resort. Nearly always cloudy, I guess it should be a coppery colour. Predominately malt qualities in aroma and taste. Criminally under hopped. Half decent body. If it’s all that’s available, I now go for the Guinness...

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2009 [On draught at Sweeney & Todd’s, Reading] This was ubiquitous in Wiltshire when I was growing up, and at the time I didn’t like it. I’ve avoided it for years, and was going to avoid it tonight as well. However, my first choice (Adnams The Bitter) turned out to have gone off, and so I thought I’d give the 6X another chance. And Wadworth’s rewarded me well - It’s sweet, malty, smooth, treacle, some raisin flavour, a hint of smoke; all in all, a beautiful pint. I can’t believe I avoided it all those years! [Re-rate, 31/1/2009 at Wadworth’s brewery] My previous notes stand, with added straw flavour. One of my favourite British bitters, very enjoyable indeed.
