What's the date on the Fullers beers? Honestly, the ESB still tastes fantastic past its prime, but it's a night and day difference if you can get a fresh sample. That is a killer haul, by the way. Your taste buds are getting spoiled this weekend!
I just got a mix-a-six myself tonight. Here in RI you can only get beer in liquor stores. I was just over the line in CT at a supermarket and was surprised when I saw a decent mix-a-six section. I got three brews from Connecticut breweries I've never even heard of, plus Sam IPL, Batch 19, and Blue Point Octoberfest. I've been meaning to try the Batch 19, but never found it available as a single until tonight.
