so i was at a hibatchi grill last night and i was complaining about how i dont like sake.the gentleman at the table next to us heard me and said "well ya just have not had good sake"so he bought us a bottle of this.i couldnt see the color but the aroma was very sweet.almost a watermelon/grape smell.i was surprised at how smooth it was with only a little alcohol burn at the end.more watermelon and grape in the taste,just like the aroma.i must say this was pretty good stuff

Bottle - clear color, usual fermented rice aroma and flavor, but more well rounded and smooth, moderate alcohol notes, slightly dry finish, pretty good for sake ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Sample from a 300 ml bottle, served at about 10 C. Clear appearance with a slight yellow tinge. Herbal aroma, perhaps some light estery notes. Lightly fruity flavour, but the alcohol finish and light burn is the most notable thing here. Lightly creamy mouthfeel before the burn hits.

A very pale yellow body with an aroma of stale rice and some light sweets. Taste is very interesting, almost like a chocolate rice pudding. Sweet ending.

This a good Daiginjo sake. Not alot of flavor some melon but is drinkable. Finishes very clean and dry. Very little hint of the 15% alcohol.

Clear, slightly yellow colour. Smooth mouthfeel but with a little bite of alcohol. As fridge cold, taste was sweet with rice and some fruity elements. A bit sour aftertaste.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Clear pale yellow-green. Dry, sweet citrus aroma that’s simply delectable. Definitely some watermelon. Alcohol is not terrible for a sake, a kick at the end but overall easy-going, sweet and yummy.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle courtesy of OFortuna. First sake rating. Crystal clear with just a hair of yellow hue. Aroma difficult to describe, perhaps light rice mold, yet not unpleasant. Mild flavor unlike the aroma. Smooth and slick on the tongue. Medium bodied, not quite dry. A little alcohol warming. Slightly sour, dry finish.

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.
