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.

yngwie (13555) - 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
