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 Englands most requested beers.
6X is brewed from 93% pale malt, 4% crystal malt and 3% cane sugar. The bitterness units of 22-24 are obtained from Fuggles hops (85% of total) in the copper and Goldings hops (15%) on the hop back plates. Colour rating is 28.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Aroma like coffee and traditional pubs. Dark brown colour. Quite a fruity taste and surprisingly doesn't lose much from coming out of a can. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic local beer, with a nice malty body. Nice coppery light brown amber colour, with a head that disappears before you take your first gulp. Nice easy drinking beer with a nice bitter after taste that leaves you feeling nice and refreshed.

This was one of the beers which I started on when I was getting into proper beer, thefore it will always hold a place dear to my heart. Remember having this on cask and enjoying it thoroughly. Good clean beer with some caramel and a good hop balance. Recommended.

scotty (1167) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle from Victoria Wine Kelso,Clean dark copper, the whitish head pours big and fluffy but this dies quickly to a thin covering. Fruit and hops dominate the nose, malt in the background. Good smooth mouthfeel, fairly full bodied, slightly sweet malt, but overall well balanced palate, nicely alcoholic, reasonable finish, a satisfying brew, liked it.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is nicely malty with a sweet light caramel, toffee and a rich sweetness. A lovely spicy/earthy base. Quite a nice balance with a soft fruity finish. A touch of apple/pear esters and some lightly toasted malts. Lovely and rich. Spicy and fruity. Quite nice for a bottled bitter.

A decent effort, without being anything special. I would have liked more strength, adding depth of flavour.

Sulphur on the aroma with a nice malts-hops balance. Earthy flavours along with a long dryness. A good bitter.

The_Osprey (7132) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2013
Jan 2013 - can, room temp. Drank initially out of can, poured most into a glass. Frothy in the mouth and mid body, sweet toffee and old ale flavours, malty. I like this actually, and I wasnt expecting to particularly. Its got a good balance about it, is drinkable with some interesting flavours. As you drink more and get used to it, it does become slightly watery tasting, but overall this is certainly a decent example of a British beer.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark copper with a slight white head. Aroma is malt with a hint of floral/fruity hop. Med + body. Flavor is slightly roasted malt with a fair amount of fruity/spicy hop. Decently bitter. Works for me. Oh to be in England!
