I recently received a few bottles of Indio from the agency representing the brand. Indio is brewed by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. in Monterrey, Mexico, and is new to the US within the past year. Not available in Florida yet, though.
The label depicts an Indian warrior in full battle armor. The phrase "La Cosa Es Buscarle 1905" is written at the bottom. Loosely, that means "The thing to find [since] 1905". Please let me know if that's not accurate since I only took one semester of high school Spanish (15 years of marriage to a Colombian hasn't rubbed off yet).
Sweet caramel aroma with some toasted bread and herbal character. Similar flavors. Sweet caramel starts but is met with a decent hoppy, grassy answer. Some herbal tea sweetness and hints of bread also stand out. The body is pretty thin, though the flavors are solid. Crisp and refreshing, even on this 50°F Florida afternoon. Brrr. Overall, an enjoyable easy drinker.
