A very bland beer of low gravity and taste. Copper in colour with a distinctive malty taste this beer is about as bland as a 4.3% ale gets. You have got to be a pretty boring old fool to like this as it really is poor. National advertising costing millions of pounds makes things worse. Why push such a tastless product when a tin pot micro in a garden shed can make something better. I would suggest Wadworths learn to give up on this crap before they waste any more money.

Wadworth really do need some tastebuds. Some pubs even have the gaul to call this a guest ale. Any pub ordering this by choice isn't worth frequenting!!!!

I can remember when 6X was a passable beer. Unfortunatley the national market has meant the beer has dropped from fair to poor

It's been a while since I had this, but as I remember it, the commercial description seems pretty accurate. Good cask ale! Rerate: Nope, not really that good after all! Drinkable, but far from brilliant.

Mmmmmm.Had this one as it was recommended.
It was like a meadiocre kebab at 0230 hrs so God knows what it quite tastes like in reality.

Reddy, brown coloured flagship ale from a brewery that used to produce fine beers. This is now only a passable drink at best. Fruit and malt dominate the tatse but it should have more body for an ale of this strength. Minimum of bitterness.

Had this recently in my local Wetherspoons in Saltcoats, June 2006. First sampled this bitter way back in 1990 and this beer now lacks the complexity of yesteryear and has become a ghost of its former self. Copper red in colour with a sweet fruity aroma. Thin body and mouthfeel. Pale malt complexes giving a digestive biscuit maltiness with raisin fruit notes. Metallic hop resin in the balanced but poor aftertaste.

[On draught at Sweeney & Todd's, Reading] This was ubiquitous in Wiltshire when I was growing up, and at the time I didn't like it. I've avoided it for years, and was going to avoid it tonight as well. However, my first choice (adnams The Bitter) turned out to have gone off, and so I thought I'd give the 6X another chance. And Wadworth's rewarded me well - It's sweet, malty, smooth, treacle, some raisin flavour, a hint of smoke; all in all, a beautiful pint. I can't believe I avoided it all those years!
