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.

BeerViking (5046) - Brentford, Greater London, - FEB 2, 2013
Cask at the Ship, Alveston. Sulphurous nose more like Pedigree than the 6X I remember. Sulphur and sweetish malt body, drying finish.

minutemat (6062) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours amber, off-white head. Caramel on the nose. Caramel to the taste. Light and palatable bitter with hints of earthy brown bread.

JaKeAFC (1283) - ITALY - MAY 13, 2017
Sample at sebar. Amber color, big offwhite head, lacing. Aroma is a bit weird, caramel with some plum and vague yeast. taste sourish, light sugary. Dry finish, soft carb, light body, aftertaste is similar to kit beers and fermented sugar. Mh.

gnoff (10985) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2017
Cask at Broad Street Tavern, Wokingham, on April 4, 2017. As a ½ pint for £1.90.
Malty, a tad grainy, biscuit taste. Medium full low CO2 mouthfeel, low bitterness. Clear amber color, small white head. Light fruity aftertaste. Malty, light fruity scent.

BeardedAvenger (1124) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Cask at the Alma, Upper Hale. Slight maltyness of an aroma. Amber. OK white head.Sweet with a bitter edge. Again there’s as maltyness to it. Light bodied. A carbonation that became more prominent as I started to finish off to get pack to work, which I didn’t find pleasant. Bland as. Can’t believe this is a mate’s favourite beer, especially a they used to work in a decent pub.

kwik-lime (2044) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Malty bitter, hint of fruits, some nut, decent full body. Satisfying if somewhat generic bitter.

FCox143 (133) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Aroma: not strong, but some fruity hop smell with notes of malt bitterness. Appearance: dark copper colour with thin foamy head. Taste: more fruity than other British bitters. Not first choice, but not disappointing either.

ShivanDragon (4614) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
copper with a white head. Aroma of dried fruits, pale malts, citrus, some nuts. Taste of caramel, malts, biscuits, mild, some nuts, some dried fruits, a slight bitter finish

gegwilson (3800) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Cask in a Wadworth pub in Woolverton. Amber with a cream head. No aroma. The taste is nutty with toast. Very light citrus and spice. OK

ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2016
St John, 5/27. Amber.  No head, light lace.  Malty and clean, lightly sweet.  Caramel and some earth.  Softer feel.  Drinks nicely. 

Quafco (10) - - APR 3, 2016
Possibly a slightly rough pint from bad pump but it was cloudy and sour, I’ve had good pints of this before but more than one bad pint, maybe doesn’t like warm weather or travelling. Even when good too fruity for my liking.
