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.

Had this on tap at the pub in sampler. Pours a very light colour. Not much aroma, very easy smooth beer. Obviously more on the larger side.

Golden blond colour. Although its quite thin and watery theres a creamy, malty feel and a fresh hop taste.

phaleslu (9854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft in a sampler at the brewbup. Pours a pale gold with a white head. Light all around, but especially in aroma- notes of straw, pale malts, crackers, and faint lemon and herbs. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a nice, crisp, dry mouthfeel. Good blonde ale.

kaser (6016) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Pours golden from the draft. In my opinion just a standard blonde ale. Nothing special but not bad at all ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
