6X 4.1 Wadworth Brewery

6X is our iconic ale, brewed for over 90 years with a national following of drinkers always seeking it out; it’s a beacon on the bar for many ale drinkers. 6X is the classic premium ale that has made Wadworth famous.

Tasting Notes: This hand crafted ale is a timeless amber-hued beer distinctively full bodied and eminently drinkable. The nose is malty and fruity with a balancing hoppy note. The delicious malt and fruit character emerge even more intensely on the palate with a long lingering malty finish.

Corvus Stout 4.1 Wadworth Brewery

Corvus breaks the rules of stout, it is the result of a passionate endeavour to brew the best black beer, which has been perfected over time. It’s evocative with a familiar rich, deep flavour, contrasted by an unexpected light body.

Tasting Notes: Looks almost black, served chilled with a thick creamy head. Distinctly smooth with a subtle aroma of roasted malt and coffee, followed by a creamy bittersweet finish with excellent drinkability

Fosters 4.0 Heineken

A pleasant, fruity, lighter-styled quaffing lager

Tasting Notes: A light-coloured lager style, it presents full malt character with a balanced clean hop bitterness. Combined with a slightly hoppy, but yeasty/malty nose, Foster''''s lager is a full bodied beer with excellent drinkability.

Henry's Original IPA 3.6 Wadworth Brewery

This golden brown beer, named after Henry Wadworth, has a good balance of flavour and a long lasting aftertaste, becoming biscuity. A good session beer.

Tasting Notes: Crisp, Biscuity

A smooth beer that delivers real drinkability pint after pint with a superb chilled and creamy taste.

Tasting Notes: 

Kronenbourg 1664 5.0 Heineken

Kronenbourg 1664 is a lager with a noble history, characterized by its fine taste. Its golden hues and delicate bitterness come from selecting the best hops (the Strisselspalt), and the unique know-how of one of the French master brewers.

Tasting Notes: This exceptional beer originated in Alsace in Eastern France and is brewed with the exclusive Strisselspalt hop, known as the caviar of hops, which gives it its unique aromatic and fruity flavour.
