Tap at FFF: Slightly lighter than it’s brother with a smaller head as well, very good lace still. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hop, lemongrass, light grapefruit and pear, very bready with a hint of butterscotch. The taste has a strange herbal quality and astringent (not fresh) bitterness with more kaffir lime undertone. Bready pale malt midsection and a dry metallic finish. The mouth feel is twangy and mouth watering but not as bright and clean as it’s twin. I preferred Romulus much more than Remus. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Interesting. In myth, Romulus snuffed bro’ Remus to become first king of Rome. Here, Remus: Bravo slams Romulus: Apollo easily. It has a golden body with a decent enough head. The aroma has a light citrus/grassy bitterness balanced with a pale malt sweetness. Same with the flavor, the malt coming through first. Sessionable.drewbeerme (3921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2007

On tap at brewpub; poured a copper/gold color. Large white head. Aroma of citrus and spice, slightly more fruity than the other version. Flavor was similar; very good tasting, liked both versions about the same. Good for the style. pantanap (3367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2007
tap at the brewpub....brother to romulus...aroma: grassy hop nose that took centerstage with little hints of cintrus hops. kind of earthy....appearance: very much similar to his sibling with a golden boddy and apple-cider like look.....taste: pretty grassy with a malty finish. something didn’t totally click with me on this one. i preferred romulus just a tad bit more.

orangish gold pour. Aroma is herbal somewhat fruity from the hop. Light caramel backs it, maybe a touch of bread. Not bad, but fairly boring. Not up to 3F standards, especially for an APA. You can tell they’re different, but I’m not sure how to put it into words. They are very similar. holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2007
On tap @ 3F for Andrews Bachelor Party. Pours similar to its twin brother, clear gold with an off white head. Carmel grains and cereal in the aroma with a light hop spice, not as pleasant as Romulus. Carmel grapefruit flavors with a lingering light and cloying bitterness. History repeats itself as Romulus kills his brother once again. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2007
On tap @ the Brew pub: Pours a clear copper color with an off white head. Aroma, bready pale malts, some citrusy, grapefruit notes. Flavor, sweet up front, some pale malts, citrus, with some light floral notes as well. I thought it was pretty good. MeadMe (1683) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2009
I took the twin taste test at 3 Floyds. Remus vs. Romulus
A: Light yellow in color kind of cloudy. There was a medium head that died down to a small lily pad.
S: Tons of nice sweet floral hops. Fresh cut grass and grapefruit.
T: Nice sweetened grapefruit taste. There is some malt in there as well to balance things out. Wonderful tasting brew. I liked it slightly better than its twin brother. Remus Rules Rome.
M: Nice and light. Effervescent brew.
