Blue Corn (Santa Fe) End of the Trail Brown Ale
Drank a sample of this beer at the brewery in Santa Fe. The beer had a full brown color with a slightly lighter hue and a good-sized foamy off-white head with average carbonation, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured caramel malt, along with notes of bread and grain, and some lighter toffee and barley. The beer was slightly sweet with a blend of roasty caramel, toffee, and bread, along with a very modest grainy bitterness for balance. It was a mostly wet and watery beer with low-to-average carbonation and a smooth and lighter mouthfeel.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Gold Medal Oatmeal Stout
Enjoyed a pint of this beer on tap at the brewery in Santa Fe. The beer had a rich dark brown to black color with a modest, creamy off-white head with average retention and good cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a wide mix of roasty malt notes, include chocolate and coffee, along with oats and caramel, and a bit of bread and barley hops. Its taste was somewhat sweet and malty with a blend of caramel, bread, oats, and lighter touches of chocolate and grain. The beer had a slightly creamy, but mostly wet and watery bottle with average carbonation and a smooth, rich mouthfeel. Pretty good beer overall, even in warmer weather.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) McLeonards Single Malt
10.1 percent. Pours a rather clear gold with a fat pillow head that keeps growing. Seriously fun to behold. Strong candy honeycomb aroma. Some light berry sweetness under all that. Banana berry cereal punch flavor. Ice cream in the finish. The booze keeps this drinkable and almost balanced. Glad it is only 10 ounce pours though. Honeycomb finish with a roast almond flavor.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Pucker Up
6.1% hazed red orange body with a thin white head. Smells of orange juice and black berries. Mild fruit tart flavor that reminds me of lik em aid from when I was a kid. The acidic fruit notes are a bit heavy for my tastes. Bit of a saw dust like yeast note underneath it all. A banana and strawberry flavor emerges as it warms.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Atomic Blonde Ale
Draft @ Blue Corn Cafe in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Initial waft was pleasant and sweet, lacking usual skunk from other blondes. Slightly hazy with very little carbonation. This is not a crisp pilsner, but a medium bodied lager with a slightly viscous texture.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Monk's Mesa
Draft at the Brewery and Cafe off the Plaza in Santa Fe.

Curiously crystal clear yellow pour with a tidy white head. Fruity orchard esters dominate the aroma, and the flavor more or less follows with a slight sweet-tartness. Beyond the esters I don’t get a lot of yeast character. Light refreshing mouthfeel, this one goes down very easily alongside a tasty plate of green chile tamales, much easier than a 7% hop bomb IPA would. I can’t say I love the beer, but I’m very pleased to see American breweries experimenting with <5% Belgian styles.

Blue Corn Razz
Sampled September 2013
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a 1/4-finger thick, pale head. The beer is a light red color that shows a lightly hazed, red-stained, golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells fruity, almost more like a NyQuil than specifically of raspberries; the fruit character has a floral quality to it, and definitely a sweet smelling, bright raspberry aroma to it.

The beer is quite dry up front, the fruit character is quite present, especially towards the finish where it really lingers on the palate. A bit of cracker like grain, and a rounded bready malt character are lightly noticeable in the middle, but really the raspberry character is the dominant flavor in this beer; because this is not sweet though, the raspberry flavors are held somewhat in check. The beer is pretty light bodied, and there is a light carbonation that provides some prickle to the finish. There is a light tartness to the finish that seems brought into play by the raspberries. There is a juiciness to the raspberry character in the finish, and it even brings out a soft sweetness, again which reminds me of NyQuil for some reason.

A straight up raspberry fruit beer.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Decadent Porter
listed as the chocolate porter. had most of a pint with dinner with my sister, really liked it following the adovada and the light belgian pale i had before. pour is black with a very thin head that does not last. cocoa nose with a bit of peanut butter. rich chocolate flavor with a very nice cocoa finish. the sweet chocolate is balanced by the dry cocoa. i picked up a couple of growlers to take to some beer folks back in denver tomorrow in exchange for a couch to sleep on, cheaper than a hotel room.

Blue Corn (Santa Fe) Road Runner IPA
On tap at the brewery, pours a copper red tint. Again, I think this brewery uses melanoidan malt in a lot of its grain bill, resulting in a red tint. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citrus and grapefruit. The body is medium with a nice level of CO2 framing a good malt-hop balance. Finishes clean and hoppy. A solid IPA.
