3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours ruddy dark amber with a very transient head. Moderate malty aroma. Little hop noticeable. Med + body. Flavor is malty in a lightly roasty way. Could pass for Oktoberfest. It’s not exactly dry, and it’s moderately bitter. Could do for a session beer.

Clear brown-amber with a slight red tint pour. Aromas of Brown bread and corn husks. Very drinkable malty flavor. One of my favorite Mexican beers. Is now available out side of Northern Mexico.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is caramel malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and caramel with metallic finish. A decent American dark lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light brown with a ruby hue. Aroma of caramel and something slightly sour. Maybe a little corn. Taste is light sweet. Corn and cotton candy with a hint of caramel and some green apple. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing to seek out but I’ll enjoy this one. Much better than your typical Mexican pale lagers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from buddy at work. I had never heard of this. Not much aroma just malt. Taste was a hair off with high carbonation. Not bad but not good either

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank from the 12 ounce bottle on the Mexican beach, aromas of cereal, corn husk, light bread, and grass. Flavors are the same, light body, breadness in the aftertaste, refreshing on the hot beach.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Indio has a medium-to-thick, cream-colored head and a clear, somewhat bubbly, copper appearance. Practically no lacing is left on the glass. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up sweet brown bread. Taste is of brown bread, sugar, and corn husk. Bitterness is at a minimum. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Indio finishes mostly dry and crisp. Overall, this is pretty dull. I suppose it’s worth checking out, though. RJT

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dark in color only, and then only a brownish red. Watery palate, weak body, very drinkable, but not really exciting. Tried this in Mexico City.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle of 355 ml, ABV 4.1% , reviewed live.
On a google search some days ago for mexican beers to try while at the Yucatan peninsula I came onto one saying that Indio is really for the low class, Indio blooded. Racist, I know. Colour is really impressive, dark amber, and there I was, thinking it would be just another immitation of Corona like beers. No head whatsoever though and no lacing.
I was expecting some caramel on the aroma, based on the colour and yes it’s there, only not so obvious as with other beers of the kind. But with a swirl of the glass it is traceable, you have to try a bit hard though to distinguish it.
Untill now a positive impression, on the taste front though, not much to report. Pleasantly drinkable but it’s as you drink water, seriously, it is tasteless.
Watery also on the palate and very light carbonation.
Overall, if they can add some more taste I can see it turning into a serious challenger for other mexican beers out there.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dirty amber. Slightly cloudy. Smell of fermented yeast and wet grain. Taste is slight malt with hay and wet grass. Thin body. Not great.
