Indio is a regular beer, it is very nice to drink in a hot day at a beach, yet it is not a very good beer to drink outside thirst quenching.
It has a very watery mouthfeel and I would even dare to say that it lacks flavour.
The smell is very faint and it has a pretty high carbonation.
In my opinion it lacks bitterness or hop aroma.
I would choose negra modelo over Indio any day.

Picked up a bottle in Mexico City.
Really odd 1970's space future pyramid lego. Like a Disney ride logo in Tomorrowland.

Amber-ish clear color, no head.
Nose is grainy malt. Maybe some slight hops.

Taste is metallic malts, again a tiny hint of hops. Tastes mostly like a macro lager. Not much there.

Pass.

Tasted 23 December 2011, reviewed from notes. On a family trip to the Yucatan, and wanting to try some Mexican beers not available in the US. The odd label on this one caught my eye.

Pours a deep amber color, quite a bit darker than I expected. Clear, with minimal head and essentially no lacing. Color might be the highlight of the beer - it's a rich, warm brownish amber color.

Smell is faint lagery hops, but not much else. I can't really detect much of anything in the smell, even after letting it warm up.

Taste is more malty and a bit more potent, but still pretty weak. The bready malt character surprised me. Hard to describe the flavor because there's so little of it, and it fades really fast.

Mouthfeel is actually pretty bad. Has a tiny burst of carbonation early on, that's gone in about a second, leaving it feeling flat, dull, and sad. Maybe worse than water.

Tastes like a bland amber lager. Not terrible, but almost totally flavorless. Definitely not worse than most of the offerings around here, but not much better.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a nice medium amber, with a small white head. Poor head retention, no lace. The nice colour is all this has going for it.

S: Sweet Munich style malt, caramel, classic nose for the style.

T: Very grainy, light flavour. Mild malt and carbon dioxide. Quite disappointed given the promise of the nose.

M: Light-bodied, very fizzy odd carbonation. Seltzer like for sure.

O: I was intrigued by a new Mexican beer, in a Fest style no less. This reminds me a lot of Victoria, a lovely classic nose gives me hope then the flavour and mouthfeel stink for the most part. No real off-flavours, I can finish the bottle, just wish there was more than basically a light lager here. Frankly, I'd prefer a Corona over this, the carbonation in this beer is just weird.

I drank this from the bottle into a pint glass in Puerto Vallarta.

The pours red brown like any marzen, pretty clear with light tan head.

The aroma is very malty.

The tasty is way to sweet, too much spice and just an total unpleasant taste.

I would not drink this again.

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.

First reviewing a saved brew from my trip, then adding my notes of this same beer.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is amber, suprisingly good head, light tan in color.

Smell is mild caramel malt, but thin, with grainy undertones.

Taste is thin, light caramel malts, lighter malt backbone with just thing graininess.

Mouthfeel is solid for a lager, slight caramel sweetness what would probably be a too crisp beer, that said a touch too carbonated.

Overall, just a thin caramel lager that looks very good; some solid malt flavors and backbone are just lacking

This was my favorite beer in mexico. Mostly cause i knew it wasnt going to be corona. I also was a bit naive in enjoying their art labels on the 2010 bottles.

A: Pours a amber to brown color, medium to no head and absolutely no lacing.

S: Grainy, no discernable hop notes. Predominantly sweet malts.

T: Caramel, but light.

M: Fizzy lifting drink. Goes down fast and finishes quickly.

D: This beer has a bit more going on than your typical mexican beach beer, but it does serve a purpose of being refreshing and it is.
