2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured like a spirit, clear, off white with no head. Aroma of sweet alcoholic rice. Little body, flavour of slightly sweet green tea. Far closer to a spirit than beer.

375 ml Bottle. Taka sobie ale dosc dobrze zaromatyzowana zapachem owocow zwlaszcza cytrusow. Ryz wyczuwalny, pasuje do sushi to sake bo ryz tu bardzo dominowal z ta owocowoscia. Wyglad to jasno slomkowa barwa klarowna. Alkohol bardzo wyczuwalny i lekko rozgrzewajacy

Gekkeikan Sake employees are very unclean, they spit, blow snot rockets, urinate around the tanks and do not use gloves when handling the product. They also let mold grow inside the tanks with no regard for months.

had both warm and chilled with sushi. i don’t really have an established scale to rate sake, so this score is in relation to how much I enjoy beers, and the perceived quality of this compared to beers of the same score.
Fairly generic but pleasant. A plum like sweetness and some abv showing no matter how it is sampled. Seems a standard.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not a sake drinker. Given this bottle as a gift. Chilled. Tastes like slightly mellowed watered down vodka. Some light notes of grape or flowers, but significant alcohol burn and not much flavor. Couldn’t stomach more than a few ounces of it. My wife could only have one sip.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear white, spirit like look.
Grainy, rice and alcohol aroma, notes of spices.
Flavour is much of the same, reasonably pleasant alcohol warmth going down.

Bottle from Sushi bar. No clue how to properly rate this actually, but I served it in a small spirit glass. Clear white stuff, no color or head or anything. Aroma of spirit, alcohol, bit grainy perhaps. Alcoholic stuff ofcourse. Bit spicy in taste perhaps, alcohol, bit white wine so grapes. Wow, this is probably a useless rating, as I got no clue how to appreciate it. At first I thought it was just alcohol, but it gets better after a few sips actually.
