In honor of national beer day I'm rating a couple from my home state of Oklahoma. This beer pours a hazy golden color with a small thin white head. Nice crisp beer smell and smooth taste just not a lot of flavor. Mouth feel is a little watery but easy to swallow. Easily a session beer.

A: Very pale gold with an airy head of foam that quickly fades away.
S: Sweet malt aroma, no hint of hops.
T: Fairly sweet malt taste, clean, without graininess. Very low bitterness.
M: Light bodied, soft texture.
O: About as inoffensive a beer as you can get. A true insult to the horny toad, which is a lizard of character.

First had Horny Toad at Hideaway Pizza, Norman, Okla., poured from pint can into tumbler. This pro forma introductory Blonde is even brewed with lager malt and hops.

Nice blonde ale with surprising easy kick to its balance and smoothness. Beautiful color. Easy- drinking and pairs well with food or appetizers.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, malty. Taste is also mild, bready malts, light, floral hops, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall not a bad beer, but seems to be lacking any punch.
