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.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2010
On tap at Russian River in August 2009. A: Yellow straw with a nice, light white head and a good deal of lacing; carbonation visible in the brew’s transparency. S: Light and refreshing--some pilsner malt with a bit of citrus and is well-hopped for the style. T: Slightly sweet with some citrus and earthy hops; nothing overpowering, but quite flavorful for the style. M: Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. D: Excellent. Very sessionable and would love to be able to grab a sixer of this one. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-04-2009

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Had on tap at RR brewpub. Pours clear golden with small bubbles and nice lacing. Muted hop aroma with slight malts and some alcohol. Flavor has nice hop balance, but slightly astringent with a lingering flavor that didn’t sit well.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2010
At brewery. Pours pale yellow clear. Nose of fruity hops. Corn grainy with a few hops thrown in. Watery and kind of like a Randalled Coors or Budweiser. Yuck.

joeneugs (3552) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma is grassy hops with a hint of fruity sweetness and grains. The flavor is nicely hoppy with a clean, crisp palate. Pretty dry. A very nice blonde.

trevor211 (1356) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Sampled at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Pours a transparent light yellow. Stale, grassy hops dominate. Very light on the palate. Not at all bad, especially for a blonde.
