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.

Theydon_Bois (16635) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. It is a clear pale golden beer with a white head. The aroma has pale malts and fruityness, quite straight forward and unexiting, but pleasant. The same goes for the flavor, where there’s also some bitterness. Pale malts and a generic fruityness. Medium to thin on the palate. Far from the most exiting beer I’ve had, but a quenching and nice one anyway. 130806

On tap @ Russian River. Clear straw colored beer with a white head. Floral and white pepper notes on the nose. Light bread and dough, some cracker, and a touch of orange pith. Palate is quite crisp and dry. Light sweetness of dough and bread. Crackery malt, white pepper, and a light grassy, pithy bitterness. Mildly hopped. Pleasant and easy drinking.

mcberko (13952) - 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.
