Appearance: Cloudy copper; medium, light head; long lasting

Aroma: Spicy; malty; biscuity; little vanilla

Taste: Thin and a little watery; pretty well balanced between sweet and hops, but doesn't jump out as anything special

Remarks: Probably a good session beer

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Jan 2013. Purchased a while back from a B&M store. This is a classic ale that I've enjoyed in the past.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A coppery-amber colour with light carbonation and floating sediment. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer. Aroma of caramel malt with hints of toffee, fruity ale yeast, faint raisins, stewed hops and a whiff of cardboard or sherry in the background. Slightly sweet.

Tastes of caramel malt with a mild fruitiness and a dry finish. Notes of fruity ale yeast, faint toffee, earthiness, stewed hops and hints of wet cardboard. A faint harshness in the background, followed by a mild, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with light carbonation and decent body. Slightly astringent, with an aftertaste of fruity caramel malt and harsh stewed leaves.

OK, but nothing spectacular. A fairly humdrum malty flavour with mild bittering hops and little hop aroma to be found. Cardboard notes suggest that it might be a tad old. Decent body. Rather average, although I suspect it would be better on cask. Worth sampling, but don't go out of your way.

Hand-pulled pint in The Euston Way (a plastic pub) in Telford on 17 Nov 2012 as I wait for my transport to a beer festival.

Dark gold/old gold in colour with a good covering of off-white foam as a head: lacing followed the beer down the UK sleeve it was poured into.

Slight aroma of fruitiness and malt semi-sweetness, but nothing strong.

The taste was as the nose: malty and fruity.

I used to love this before I started to stretch my taste buds and bounderies: still a good example of a UK Best Bitter but it could be so much more with a little more care and alcohol content.

While visiting friends in England, of course we had to try some real ales from hand pump.
6X has become one of Wadworth's flagship brands, and is available every time you turn around. Served a proper pour, pint glass, cellar temperature.
Clear golden brown color, with a thin head that left thin lace sheets. Aromas of earthy malt and slightly fruity hops. Tastes clean and crisp, lots of flavor but without one element coming through too much. Not as full bodied as I was expecting. Slight balancing hop bitterness to finish. Dry, slightly herbal finish. A decent sessional English Pale Ale.

Cask at The Farmers' Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a dark golden copper color with amber edges and a thin half finger white head that immediately disappears.  No lacing.

Slightly earthy aroma with delicate grassy hops countered by sweet and spicy malt notes.   Slightly spicy with caramel, rye toffee and hazelnut.

Medium body with very soft carbonation and a nice balance of subtle hops and sweet malt notes.  Minimal dryness and not too bitter with soily hops countered by spicy rye, sweet caramel, toffee, nut and light fruit.  Not terribly complex but well balanced and very quaffable.
