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.

But I guess it just wasnt going to work selling a beer called 6X, which sounds like its meant to be strong, but definitely isnt.

Bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. A dark amber fruity ale with sulphur, almond and chrisatmas cake flavours with a slight burnt toffee finish. Pretty good.

Bottle at home. A yummy, slightly spicy ale that could go the mile down the pub.

A true English bitter and that is a compliment. Good malt, mild bitter hops and a beer that you can just keep drinking and enjoying.

(Bottle)Typical of a English bitter. Light in taste,not really bitter. Lack of a head. Amber in color. Sits ok on the palate. Decent bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2016 Pours copper yellow. Small white head. Poor retention. Smells fruity along with caramel malt. Medium body. Thinnish viscosity. Its a bit like white wine...grapey? Floral hops counterbalance sweet malt. Dry astringent grapey finish. Not bad.

BeerNinjaUK (438) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Really dont understand how Ive never rated this before as its pretty much the staple beer in our house! Pours rich copper with red orange hue, very frothy head. Aroma treacle, sherry and bread dough. Sweet and bitter on the palate and rather heavy on the carbonation.

500ml bottle from Asda. Pours a brownish copper with a minimal off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, some floral notes. Initial caramel sweetness met by a more interesting dry malty flavor. A little too carbonated, but overall I was pleasantly surprised.
