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.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 "better than most blondes, but still a blonde. the addition of hops adds a little to the flavor level and aroma, but this one suffers in comparison to other great RR beers."

On tap at the brewery. Pours light golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale malts, and light dough and bread notes. Flavor the same with a decent amount of hops for the style. Average texture. A solid blond ale.

Theydon_Bois (16866) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Keg at Russian River (I didn’t come 6,000 miles to tick Golden Fucking Blondes - but I had to of course), Santa Rosa, 27/04/14. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off white swirl atop the glass. Nose is orange, citric rind, light florals, bread dough. Taste comprises floral hops, straw, lemon rind, orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lemon bitterness. Ok GB, may benefit from being cask conditioned to work the flavours out a little more.
