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.

Vladivostok (446) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Dark for a bitter with a hard nutty flavour. Hops provide bitterness but little aroma or distinctive flavour. Medium-long finish. Not a beer I would like to drink every day but I do like a pint once in a while.

Pint at the Broad Street Tavern in Wokingham. Clear amber with very little head. Tastes bitter, hoppy and of sulphur. Easy to drink but not the best tasting. Indistinct light fruity aroma.

Cask at GBBF 2011. Pours a brown copper colour with a slight head. The aroma is all bread and malt, the taste is quite biscuit like with some bready warm malts and a dry bitter finish.

Bif (2049) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Served a deep copper color with a small head and nice lacing. Primarily a malt aroma. Mainly a malt flavor with a bit of fruit. Has a nice touch bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Easy Drinker and true session beer. This is my go to beer when in the "South of England". Worth a try.

gunnar (7884) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2011
Cask at The Bridge on Wool, Wadebridge. Pours clear copper with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of fruity malts, pretty weak that is. Taste is overall on the sweet side, with nutty malts, ends on the light bitter side. Ordinary and boring.

EdKing (2391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Copper in glass, thin white head. Nose is smelly - ’Burton snatch’. Sulphurous and eggy. under that it’s bread yeast and fruity hops. Taste is earthy and minerally with a fruity flavour. Bit of roasted malt. Standard English country bitter.
