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.

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.

Big thanks to golubj. Pours cyrstal clear golden/yellow with a small but strong head. Aroma is lightly bread-y malts with light earthy hops. Taste is a nicely dry with a nice blend of pils malt and lightly sweet white-bread maltiness. Also has a lightly bitter and very calm hoppy finish. I really like it, easy drinking with a pils/Belgian mix.
Growler form brewpub.

Draft at the brewpub. Nice grainy, pale american malt aroma and flavor. A little citrusy. Maybe some mint in the finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Growler thanks to Beastiefan2k. Poured a clear gold with a white head. Light yeasty notes in the aroma and a toasted malt base. Mild sweetness. The flavor is malty with more of that yeasty character. Moderately bitter finish. Semi-dry finish with a light to medium body.

notalush (5513) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Growler shared by beastiefan2k - very light colored beer, with a soapy, lasting head - fairly grainy and grassy aroma, with almost peppery hops, apparent pils malt, and a slightly belgianish yeast character - none of that character in the flavor, though - just clean yet bready pale malts and pleasant grassy bitterness - dries out and gets a bit chalky in the finish, leaving the tongue anxious for more - nice beer.
