This beer really lives up to my expectations - the best lager around! I drank Indio quite a bit when I was working in Monterrey, Mexico. I'm living in the Chicago area now & have just started to see it sold at the Jewel chain stores. This is the 3rd 12-pack I've bought in the past month (current price: $11.99). All my friends & relatives enjoy drinking it. It goes down well alone & with all kinds of food. Na zdrowie & salud to Indio!

I remember drinking this before I got into craft beer, during trips to Mexico. Then it started showing up on shelves in the states and what can I say? Nostalgia aside, I enjoyed it. For a “dark beer” (back in those days everything was “dark” or “light”, right?) it has a malty profile but manages to stay crisp and finish clean. My best comparison would be a less-sweet Dos XX Amber, something I would drink again in the right context even.

Appearance: Clear, deep amber in color with an off-white head, which soon dissipates to a scatytering of foam. Thin fine-beaded lace leaves a small ring on the glass walls.

Aroma: Lightly-toasted malts, biscuit, and some grassy hops dominate the aroma. .

Taste: Opens with lightly toasted malts, followed by a wave of mildly metallic hops. The malt ascends a bit, presenting a mild toasted dark bread flavor. Later in the taste, mildly earthy hops appear. The hops and malt bring the taste to a balanced close.

Mouth feel: A bit thin, with slightly sharp carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Not bad, but certainly not the equal of better German and American Märzen / Oktoberfest. Still, better than many commonly available Mexican beers.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at CEFCO in Texas in August of 2013 for $8.99/ build-your-own six-pack plus tax.

Poured a thin layer of head on a clear, caramel colored body.
The aroma is heavy on the malt, lots of caramel and a touch of lemon.
The taste is mild to moderately malt sweet without any complexity though. It taste fine, just not interesting.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
Not bad, not great.
