COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aud Blonde may be the lightest colored beer we have ever brewed at Russian River Brewing Company, but don't be fooled into thinking that this beer is light in flavor. It has a refined characteristic, which can be contributed to us blending pilsner malt with a unique hop called crystal. The distinctive characteristic of the crystal hop lends a citrus, almost eucalyptus quality in the aroma and mouth feel of the brew, while leaving the beer with a long dry finish.

This poureda lighter golden color with a white head. Aroma was of grassy hops and light Belgian yeast. Flavor was similar. Nothing wrong with it, but a little bland from these guys.

Pale yellow color, nice lacing. Arom ais light. Little bit of leon and grapefruit. Not much going on there. Flavor is maize, malts, little bit of hops. Would pair really well with tortilla chips or Mexican food, I feel.

(En fût au O’ Brien’s pub): Une croûte céréalière légèrement miellée et propre qui se laisse aguicher par des houblons agrumés et délicatement parfumés. Une fabuleuse concoction au service d’une buvabilité pure.

On tap at Russian River. Aroma is of light cereal grains with a touch of sweetness and very nice floral hop notes. Pours a light straw color, white head has good retention and leaves lots of lacing. Nice Pils malt notes, low/medium bitterness, some citrus, finish is clean and dry. Light body, medium carbonation.
