danlo (1634) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
72cl bottle. Pours clear with a slight yellowish tinge, no head and aroma of rice, melon. Taste is similar, rice, melon with woody, earthy, grassy notes and boozy alcohol. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, dry finish. Quite OK.

DSG (8444) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Max. Clear water-like appearance. Aroma of rice, mild fruitiness and alcohol. Sweet flavor with rice, light fruitiness, a bit of wood and lots of alcohol. I don’t like this at all.

oh6gdx (22632) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottled. Very pale pinky colour with no head. Aroma is mild tart wood, some alcohol, slick sweet rice notes as well as some mild minty notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden and slightly alcoholic with some mild strange acidicness to it.

Marduk (3978) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Since this is my first sake rating I rate it as a strong alcohol. Slighlty pink color. Sour, medicine, spirit, woody aroma. Not too repulsive I have to admit. Citrus, woody, lemonade and alcohol im taste. Smooth, but at the same time you can feel the alcohol bite. Feels cheap, but since I got no experience on that field I might be wrong.

McTapps (5732) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle bought at an Asian supermarket for 2.49 Euro and shared with MichaelBruch. Soft taste of sparkling wine without the sparkle and mild roses. No carbonation, no bitterness or dryness. Delicate sake.

MichaelAwesome (5681) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. First sip was a bit tasteless and disappointing but after a few sips more a nice aroma of plum and maybe apple developed. Would’ve loved to have a second bottle. Great.

gregwilsonstl (1391) - Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Cold. Tastes like rice wine vinegar but nice and sweet. This is my first sake so I dont know what to compare it to. Drank at fin.

AshtonMcCobb (3925) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Pours completely clear. Nose of mild black bean and generally sweet, dry and like an old cellar. Taste of more fermented bean curd, sweetness and some alcohol. Palate medium to full, long persistent finish. I think this is good but it is my first sake so difficult to judge.
