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.

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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Easily the worst Mexican beer I’ve ever tasted. Perhaps I got a skunked sixer down in Sonoyta, Son., but this tasted solely of adjuncts and sandpaper, with little caramel or malt anywhere. Highly unrecommended.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured up a really nice amber with a decent head. Looked really good and made me all set to try this. The smell was a bit grainish with not much else to make me think this was going to be good. The taste was about the same with a hint of caramel in there. Very week, watery beer that might be good for taking care of a thurst on a hot summer day but other than that wouldn’t want it. So while it looks nice in a glass it is not really much for beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of corn tortillas. Taste is light, slightly malty, pretty bland. A definite sub-par brew.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
AROMA: A malt forward smell - hints of caramel. APPEARANCE: A deep clear amber pour with a short lived tan head and minimal lacing. TASTE: There is not a strong presence here. A pleasant sweet pallet which seems watered down. Slight bitterness on the finish. A bready aftertaste exists. MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light bodied with minimal carbonation. OVERALL: Once I saw the beautiful dark amber pour, I'd hoped for more than the blandness I got. This wouldn't even go well with Mexican food.
