A nice treat to try this little known brew, while at the brewery over the summer...(this one has the Apollo hops), typical P.A. presentation, medium light almond amber, light tan head, with plenty of fine, clinging lacing. Light nose of herbal smelling hops. Smooth and easy drinking pale, pleasantly balanced, user friendly if non descript creation, worthy and workman like sessioner

The second of the Roman twin challenge at 3 Floyd's.

A: A little darker than its twin brother. This beer was more golden yellow/orange in color and its also nice and clear. Pours with a nice two finger head that dies down nicely yet remains.

S: Nice and floral like its big brother. Tons of citrus with grapefruit peel front and center. Big smelling brew.

T: Grapefruit baby. Romulus is a bit more bitter than its sweeter brother Remus. I really like this brew, but the malty sweetness in Remus puts it slightly ahead. I liked Remus a little better making Romulus the heir to the throne. If given the chance Romulus could rule Rome.

M: Medium body and Effervescent. Nice brew.

D: Drank a half pint but could drink it by the bomber easily.

Overall: Remus and Romulus are in a battle to rule Rome. They are evenly matched brews with equal ABV and IBU. The difference is the hops used. Both are great beers but I am leaning slightly toward Remus. I love 3 Floyd's.

this was billed as one of the two twins, the concept being two brews being exactly the same except for the single hop type, which in this case was the apollo hop variety. both romulus and remus clock in at 56 IBUs. this was a deep, clear straw/light apricot in color with a big herbal nose, i swear it was rosemary we smelled in this. also some citrus notes and sweet malts as it is a 3fs brew. taste was a nice balance of the sweet doughy malts and a good amount of crisp hop bitterness to balance. almost medium-bodied and a very sessionable brew at 5%. these two beers were a good lesson in the two hop varieties.
