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

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.

Dirty amber. Slightly cloudy. Smell of fermented yeast and wet grain. Taste is slight malt with hay and wet grass. Thin body. Not great.

Aroma is malts, lager yeast and beery. The flavor is malts, a hint of sweetness and relatively thin. Not nasty but could be better.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty clear amber color with practically no head. Very light bodied. Flat flavor, slightly bitter, slightly skunky but not unpleasantly. Not a bad beer for just drinking a beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at a Mexican restaurant in Lombard: No Way Jose. Served with a frosted mug. Meh. But at least he asked first if I wanted a lime. Nice brown pour, leaving a thin layer of foam. Smell from the bottle carries a good dose of brown malt. Taste also has mellow brown malts. I think there’s some corn, but it’s not that obvious. The mug is causing icy bits of beer to form, so I’m doing most of the rating from the bottle. There I get a good impression of a smooth amber beer with a clean lager finish and no graininess. A good palate cleanser for the really spicy salsa this place serves. Filling, and leaves a good "burp," too.
