Indio by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma

Rating: 3.25/5

Indio by Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma is a 4.5% ABV Märzen / Oktoberfest style beer. This is made by the same group that makes Tecate, Dos Equis, Sol, Noche Buena and Bohemia, which is one awesome lager.

Label: 

Hecho en Mexico, La cosa es Buscarle 1905. (Made in Mexico, What’s important is too keep looking)
A darker color lager, brewed with caramel malts that gives indio a rich taste which balances its bitterness.

Finally got around to getting a review out of this one. This is not the typical Mexican beer. In fact, some of the other beers like the typical lagers cannot emphasize the greatness unless they use darker malts vs pilsner malts. Although Pilsners have been proven epic in other instaces…*cough*.. Staropramen lol. I have had Bohemia before which to me possibly along with Pacifico some of the better lagers from Mexico out there. This one, just like Victoria, Bohemia or Dos Equis Amber is made in the traditional German style Marzen or Munich lager. The complexities are different but the styles create beers that are sweeter in flavor, stronger, and darker. With that said, on to the review! 

It smells somewhat like a caramel biscuit but dipped in a lager. This beer is diferent from Victoria and the others as its bitterness is more like wheat cereal (Total perhaps). Dry finishing beer so you wanna try more. Flavors of sweet caramel, sweet grains, some pilsner, hints or almond or hazel, little bit of earthy hops, this awesome but very faint yeasty after taste like that of Rogue Dead Guy but it is quickly dismissed by the grainy cereal flavor. Regardless, this beer is pretty good. Definitely alittle bit above the average beer. LOL unfortunately many will still choose their bud, coronas, or what ever yellow lagers they try. It is somewhat of a shame because this one is pretty good 😛
