Wadworth - Swordfish

WP_20140208_007 Our February half term break in the caravan was at the Camping & caravan Club site on the outskirts of Devizes, which is also home to Wadworths brewery. How convenient. Even more (or perhaps too) convenient was the pub that was just two minutes walk from the caravan site. Some of the Wadworth regular ales, I‘ve had before, such as 6X and Henry’s – and these are already on the blog somewhere.

What the brewer says: With a gentle rum aroma and dark, unrefined sugar adding a rich smoothness, it is a full-bodied, deep copper coloured ale with a base of crystal malt and delicate Fuggles and Goldings hops.

The rum aroma comes from the addition of Pussers rum to  their 6X and brings a slight sweetness to the beer. Would happily drink again. 5% A.B.V
