Default A few new beers to try ?'s

I bought a few new beers and I plan on having them over the next few days. I was wondering if there was an order that would bring out the best of each beer. I've not had any of these before so input would be appreciated.

1: Whitbread Pale Ale
2: Hobgoblin
3: Old Engine Oil
4: Skullsplitter
5: Sam Smith Nut Brown
6: Old Peculier
7: Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale

If I wanted to sample them all in a row, the order I'd drink them is:

SS Nut Brown
Hobgoblin
Whitbread Pale
Kona Pale
Old Peculier
Old Engine Oil
Skullsplitter

But I'd rather split them up into "flights" - each to be enjoyed at a different time:

Whitbread Pale
Kona Pale

SS Nut Brown
Hobgoblin

Old Peculier
Old Engine Oil

Skullsplitter

That way you can do a side-by-side sampling without getting completely schnockered by the time you get to the bigger beers.

Thank you

I will be doing them slowly over the next few days.
So time for a Whitbread
