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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head (still). Body is colorless. Aroma is light notes of grain, flowers, peach, apple, honey, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Light body, watery texture, flat carbonation, moderately alcoholic. I've had [cheap] sake a few times in the past, but this is my first serious attempt to review one. Figured I'd start with something reasonably serious but not terribly pricey. Seems to have slight elements of white wine, mead, and beer alike...I've had examples of each that were similar to this. This is not an exceedingly interesting or complex example, or so it seems, but it's quite pleasant and better than any sake I'd previously had. Giving an appearance score may be difficult with sakes, I expect, as a great deal are pretty much colorless...in what case would you give a 1 or 2, if it had dead insects floating in it?

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.
