COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Previously 4.3%. Alcohol content of the cask version reduced in 2014.

Ingredients: Pale malt, Crystal malt and cane sugar; Fuggles hops (85% of total) in the copper and Goldings hops (15%) on the hop back plates.
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.

Cask. Deep amber color, small white head. Brown bread and some toffee on the nose. Grainy. The taste is lightly sweet, a bit of wood and caramel. The finish is watery, not particularly bitter. The bodys medium but lopsided, the finish too light. Overall, not my favorite.

Vladivostok (461) - 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.

Bif (2121) - St. Charles, 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.
