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.

mcberko (7226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
On tap at Russian River, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Nose is pretty light, with some crackery malt and some light floral notes. Flavour is very light and subtle, with lightly bitter floral notes and crisp crackery malt to back. Very light drinking on the palate, and highly drinkable. Good stuff for a boring style.
