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.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, pine and malt. The finish is dry with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Had this on tap at the pub in sampler. Pours a very light colour. Not much aroma, very easy smooth beer. Obviously more on the larger side.
