8 x 500ml bottles
6X best bitter is one of the most famous ales from the south of England and was first brewed 5th December 1923.
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.
Originally 6%, Coopers would mark XXXXXX on the wooden casks to indicate the beer's strength. One day a 'lazy' Cooper simply wrote '6' followed by a single ‘X’ on the cask and that's how it got its name! The ABV reduced to 4.3% due to rationing of raw ingredients during WWII and remains that strength in bottles and cans to this day. The ABV is 4.1% on draught - take a look at our Micro Casks to enjoy cask fresh beer at home!
