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.

jbruner (3827) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of nice bready grain with good citrus hop notes. Soft bitterness that leaves quickly, really nice for hop lovers.

dfearnley (1612) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
Draft to taster at RR brewpub Hay and very light funk. Yellow, very clear, white head, good lacing. Hops, wheat, grapefruit. It’s too bitter without some good malt balance.

SinH4 (2324) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2015
Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Hazy golden color with small white head. Some grapefruit, floral-herbal, grainy-malty. A nice dry golden Ale, but well... Not my style again.

bartzluke (533) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2015
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again? Great body. Flavor is subtle. Very drinkable.

rosenbergh (9922) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Draught at the Russian River Brewing Co, Santa Rosa, CA.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small to mid-size white head. Mild sweet malty aroma. Dry hops, moderate bitterness and grainy maltiness in the flavour. Bitterness stays.

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.
