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.

Cask at the Ship, Alveston. Sulphurous nose more like Pedigree than the 6X I remember. Sulphur and sweetish malt body, drying finish.

Cask - copper beer with decent white head. Little aroma but easy on tongue and mouth. Bitter finishing taste - unremarkable easy drinking.

Cask at the GBBF 2015. High fluffy lasting white head. Clear dark brown body. Weak malt caramel aroma. Thin and watery malt chestnut cocoa flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish.

R2k2 (396) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
A cloudy, ruby-red beer with a firm, compact layer of foam. It has something nutty in the aroma, but that’s about it. A full bitter, somewhat watery taste bij the lack of carbon, and it leaves a somewhat bitter aftertaste which hangs on for a while. Een troebel, robijnrood bier met een stevige, compacte, lichtbruine kraag. In het aroma zit iets noterigs, maar verder niet veel. Een volle bittere, maar verder waterige smaak door het gebrek aan koolzuur. Een iets bittere nasmaak die even blijft hangen.

jfb (4759) - Freising, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2015
(cask) hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of butterscotch and caramel, with a hint of brown sugar, wheat, some smoked eel and sugar icing. flavour is mostly butter, black tea and herbal hops, slightly chalky, with a hint of raisins and a semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
