Well, both beers are considered English, the Iron Maiden being an ESB and the Sword being a EPA. The Trooper has an interesting almost citrus taste going on but it isn't a mind-blowing amazing beer. If you like Pale Ales I found the Iron Swan to be really tasty and very drinkable and it's not too hoppy. But at $6 for a 16.9 oz bottle for The Trooper vs $8 for a six pack of Iron Swan, I'll certainly be drinking more of The Sword's beer.

Interesting. Never sampled an ESB, but I don't mind EPA's. I'd like to try it if I come across it.

Just turned 21 9 hours ago and my first legal drink was a Bud Light Lime, not my choice of drink but it was all that they had around.

I technically finish up in June, but my job prospects are looking crazy slim so I might stay another quarter just to try and have another "college internship" over summer.

Dude, there was a day when I spent over 14 hours in the Engineering building just doing a Matlab project. Those kinds of days are sobering to say the least. I thought you already graduated?

Yeah I'm taking a couple Graduate courses now, wasn't planning on going back but you know,
my job prospects are looking crazy slim
Depending on how the next month goes I might have to bite the bullet and work part time at an intern level and just go for the Masters degree in the next year and a half.

I wish I could do grad school, but my GPA is way in the hole. If I spend another quarter here I'd retake classes over summer, which would hopefully help things.

They told me "engineering major = job." No one told me that what they really meant was "computer science major = job." :(

I feel you. When I was in HS they were like "college degree=$$$ and job" all lies. I graduated last year and no real opportunity has been given hell I cant even get a job at a bank to make some decent $ thus I'm back in school and thinking bout a Master's :hecho:

I'm like legit boned if I can't get a job right out of school because of the aforementioned GPA preventing grad school thing. I'm hoping to god that I get something by like March or something, otherwise shit will be so fucked. I really really don't wanna move back in with my folks. :(

Well for me it's more a matter of having a hard time getting my foot in the door, I didn't have any kind of internship or experience outside class until a couple months before I graduated.
But yes, shit is fucked these days.
