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.

BeerViking (4450) - 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.

BeardedAvenger (490) - 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 theres 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 didnt find pleasant. Bland as. Cant believe this is a mates favourite beer, especially a they used to work in a decent pub.

Malty bitter, hint of fruits, some nut, decent full body. Satisfying if somewhat generic bitter.

FCox143 (44) - 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.

Possibly a slightly rough pint from bad pump but it was cloudy and sour, Ive had good pints of this before but more than one bad pint, maybe doesnt like warm weather or travelling. Even when good too fruity for my liking.

The_Osprey (7386) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Cask at The Swan, Hammersmith, last week. As Wadworth 6X, 4.1%. Amber orange, clear, still, small off-white head. Aroma is bready, a bit farty and sulphurous. Body is light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is thin, watery bread, some apple and resin. Basic and thin. Just OK. Probably wont come back to this one.
