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.

Honestly not bad for a blonde ale, I would actually consider drinking another of these and I cant say that Ive felt that way about this style before. Nice yellow color with a medium white head and some okay lacing. Cereal like aroma with some floral traces and a decent malty taste with a dry finish and some floral hoppiness to it. One of my least favorite from the RR sampler tray, but still not a bad beer.

Very solid for a blonde ale. Not too exciting, but very drinkable. Pours yellowish with a white head, some C-hops on the aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet pale malt and floral hop bitterness. Light and smooth.

Enjoyable beer. Tap at OBriens 15th, golden color, a bit cloudy? A bit of a whit taste to it. Dry finish. A little odd and Im not a big fan of the style. Fun to try.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Pours golden with white head and nice lacing. Smell is light sweet clean malt and a touch floral. Taste is cleanish but slight musty and floral. Very light honey and yeast flavor w touch hops. Med. Body and soft carbonation, but this was surprisingly good fresh on tap. I liked it quite a bit better than I thought I would.

(10/28/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Rather malty aroma. Clear golden. Sweetish bready flavor with light diacetyl notes and light bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. OK.
