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.

On tap at brewery: Pale hued but not pale on flavor. Great lace. Crisp texture. Flavors of crackers and grains blended nicely with citrus and herbs. Finished with a healthy amount of bitterness and some dryness.

Draught at Russian River. Very light blonde ale. Low ABV. Taste is nice and somewhat citrus. Not as intense as I expected. I guess that’s the problem with reputation’s bending. Very sessionable.

pleasantly surprised by this beer. I wasn’t expecting much from this style but it was quite good. Nice citrusy nose and flavour. Surprisingly full bodied. nothing to jump up and down over but a very easy drinking and flavourful brew for the style.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 On tap at the Pizza Port Session Ale fest. Pours with a rocky white head over a hazed golden body with great lace. Aroma is spicy, and herbal hops, with a light melon note, pepper and a trace amount of wheat. Taste is light, bready and slightly metallicy bitter with a grassy and eucalyptus note. Fizzy and dry.

The second tap we finished at City Beer. Nose was very lemongrassy - Warrior hops? Flavor was like spiced Sprite and grain. Seemed anemic, especially in color. Pilsner malt indeed.
