3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home (300mL) picked up at Wilbur’s for $14.99. New sake style tick and a point in RBSH3. Pours a very clear, just a touch yellow tinted appearance with no head. Sweet green apple, pear, sticky rice, a touch candy-like aroma. A little bland and watery but very smooth. A touch of booze on the finish but mostly just a light apple/pear, slightly grassy flavor. High boost.

Had with my sushi dinner. The aroma is subtle. Flavors that are citrusy, fruity, pears. Very delicate.

Very affordable but not the best check for your first daiginjos. This s the current emperors choice but but buy a good bottle of a smaller brewer to pop your daiginjo cherry pardon the crude analogy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Much cleaner smell that the Gekkeikan Gold I just had. Clear color. Taste is more ephemeral, lighter alcohol and again a hint of plum flavor.

Clear pour with no head. Fermented cider and pineapple in the nose with nectar fruit, white rice water, and alcohol in the flavor. Supple body with a sweet tropical alcohol finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first sake rating, so this might sound a bit like a newbie rating.. clear very light off-white pour. Aroma of white wine, some fruits and sour apple. Flavor is quite sweet and alcoholic. Very thin palate and watery texture. I’m not sure sake is for me, but I should give it another shot sometime.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 So it has come to this, rating a sake...
No idea whatsoever so here goes:
Aroma is sour vinegary white wine. Flavour is sweet rice goo. Oh yeah and alcohol.
I’ll stick to beer.
