COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale ale made in honor of the twins who founded the city of Rome. Using the same malted barley recipe as his twin, Remus, they differ only in the single hop variety, this one with Apollo hops.

Cask at Great British Beer Festival ’07. Dark gold. Grapefruit aroma with something else, yeasty and spicy. Sweet fruity taste with grass and rocket leaves. Some late bitterness. Very smooth and eminently drinkable.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Tap at FFF: Clean golden hue with a solid frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of grapefruit, apple, slight pine and grassy hops, bready malts and earthy yeast esters. The taste starts with a nice moderate hop bite with citric tones. The finish is dry, biscuity, and peppery. The mouth feel is lively and crisp, quite refreshing and easy to drink. This is really good and a pleasant surprise, get ya some. (Unlike Cornfield, I preferred Romulus over Remus)

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF. Dark gold colour with a thin rim of white bubbles. Amazing grassy hopfest of a beer. Lovely and crisp with peach and grapefruit and a whole manner of other citric stuff. Sharp bitter finish. Yum yum.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
GBBF 2007 - Amber, small reducing head. Devilishly hopped. Long taste with bitter, mild and bitter elements. The malt is light and the hops are unconventional (perhaps the solo Appollo hops additions?). All in all a very tasty beer. Can’t wait to try this one again.

Svesse (6080) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2007
(Cask at GBBF, London, 8 Aug) Pale orange colour with brief white head. Fruity, very hoppy nose with pine needles and grapefruit. Fruity, seriously hoppy taste with notes of pine needles, resin and grapefruit. Very bitter finish with a grapefruity hop character. On the sweet side. Hardly balanced, but lovely hop character.

maeib (8682) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2007. A bright orange gold coloured beer. The aroma has lovely hops full of grapefruit, orange and lychee. The taste is sharp and bitter. Good citrus notes, both orange and grapefruit. Good stuff.

A pale ale with a malty finish and a nice hop touch to it.This was true to FFF style and very enjoyable.CHEERS to Nick and guys for trying two types of pale ales with a twist to them.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2007
On tap at FFF, and served in a pint glass. This pale ale poured a hazy golden color with a minimal off-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was made up of citrus hops, including orange, grapefruit and lemon, and also a hint of sweet malts. The flavor was mostly bitter, followed by a sweet mandarin orange taste and a bit of bittersweet grapefruit. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with a slight bit of carbonation. I greatly prefered this one over the Remus.
