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.

Flavorful with a good nuttiness and a little bit of depth of flavor...For the style that is. Less thin and has much more going on than the normal blond ale. A boring beer made to serve the people at their brewpub who want budweiser. But, like everything else they make its amazing (for the style at least). After reading the description of eucalyptus, I think that hits the mark.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Draft @ Russian River. Pours a clear, light-golden color; white head with good retention and gorgeous fine-bubbled lacing. Nicely dry, crisp aroma of sugar and toasty crackers and light minerals. Medium mouthfeel: lots of crisp mineral bitterness and toasty malts; very dry core, and very drinkable; beautifully put-together blonde ale; I could (and should) drink a ton of this. Medium finish: dry mineral bitterness and plenty of toast.

TheAlum (6146) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Sampler at the RR Brewpub (Santa Rosa, CA). Poured with a straw yellow body, sizable head for the time it sat. Mellow sweetness on the nose and in the taste. Sweetness reminds of bready cakey light sweetness mixed with just a splash of bittering. Smooth and simple, a good "Gateway" beer for many and a brewe my girlfriend liked a bunch.

Draught. Straw and hop nose. Light butter notes. Clear pale gold with no head. Strong pilsner malt character, straw/grass with a bit of hop character and some fruit esters, mostly grapes. Tart finish. Nice texture, dry.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2008
draft @ brewery - straw gold and clear and again with no head; aromas are a grassy mix of lemons, citrus and mild hops; drinks dry with pleasant semi-sweet finish; a little on the bland side, but that’s easy to be against the rest of the menu

~Pours a light golden color with lasting white head. ~Light sweet hoppy scent. ~Light hop flavor, watered down, but decent flavor. ~Light feel, quick finish. ~A great summer brew. I could drink many of these down by the water.

On tap at RR. Pours a gold color with a small white head. Aroma of malt, toast, mild hops. Flavor is a little yeast and mild malt. Mouth is a little light. Finish is lightly bitter. Not a bad session brew.
