Ale Odyssey - September 2022

Ale Odyssey - September 2022

Welcome to our very first Ale Odyssey Box, we're incredibly happy with this inaugural line-up! Between you, me and the beer fridge, we think it's good enough to be The One LITE; just missing the baller large format bottles and the odd ultra rare or cellared beer The One is so well known for.

You might have been suprised by the blank insert that arrived in your box! Rest assured we've done some serious sensory on all these brews, but first wanted to give you the chance to tackle the tasting yourself. We hope you enjoy exploring the line-up and, when you're ready, scroll on down for our tasting notes. Cheers!
