COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crisp and clean, Horny Toad is a premium blonde ale with a hint of Noble hop bitterness to balance the two-row and pilsner malt body. This refreshing libation is a great introduction to craft beer and COOP Ale Works.

Poured from pint can to brandy snifter, big thanks to 4balance for this one! Pours a middle gold without much of a pulse... Fat two fingers of white head, a bit of lacing. The nose showcases some corn, wet hay, leafy hops, faint pale malts, pretty damn clean. Smells like a nice BBQ beer. The taste exposes a lot of the same things... mild grains, soft corn, a bit of hops near the end. If this was my local brew it would quickly become a staple summertime beer at my house. American blonde? Not really... But still a quality hot weather beer from a brewery that I wish had a spot in MN.

Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting and fair lacing. Moderate straw malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium straw sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft brew.

Can to snifter. Nothing special, but itís better than itís averages suggest. Great for mouthwash, and no need to spit!

Sampled at CanFest 2011 in Reno. Pours a really light yellow. Solid but unremarkable. Could have used a skosh more hops and a little more fizziness to kick it up.

I was totally disappointed in this. Didnít have any of the crispness youíd expect from a pils. Seemed more like a poor pale lager.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Light golden pour into lingering foamy head that slowly dissipates into a ring of melting lacing as carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of malty corn and yeasty biscuit. Initial flavor of malty corn that fades into grassy, bitter finish.
