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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.72L bottle with 16% labeled as "Junmai Dai-ginjyo Gekkeikan", so i really hope this is the right sake, any other thoughts will be wellcome. Served chilled.
Uniform light yellow colour, aroma of rice, light sweetness and an alcoholic presence which is not to strong. Pleasant sweetish aftertaste.
Doesn’t feel like an overly complex sake but still a mellow and enjoyable sake which goes well with sushi and makes a great match with pickled ginger.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice clear water color.Thin watery aroma of fruit maybe melon as some have said but it could be something different.I’m just unsure due to my limited access and trials of this kind of brew.The flavor was very nice.Mild flavor with a watery thing going on here with plenty of alcohol and only a mild hint of fruit.I thought that Sake was supposed to get better with the more money you spend on them but this one isn’t that great.i have a cheap Sake that has better flavor then this one does.Oh well gotta try to learn more about’em

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
First off, let me say that this product doesn’t smell nearly enough of toe-fungus for me. Its unacceptable aroma translates into crevice-born flavor when cold, and mellows to almost-palatable fruityness when warmed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a really light pale yellow color with a syrupy texture. Smells of breads, citrus, and kind of a yeaty aroma. The taste has a sweet cinnamon flavor, with a good amount of heat left on the tongue. Definitely has some doughy flavors, but its kind of sweet and mildly bitter. Has a mildly grainy flavor, but nothing too bad. I’m still trying to gather my sake taste buds and differentiate flavors, but I thought this was pretty good.
