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.

The wife and I had this a few weeks ago at a Mongolian BBQ restaurants of all places, but they spelled it wrong on the menu, I saw it today at a local State Store
Poured clear. Aroma was of sweet candy and herbal. Flavor was sweet and hot alcohols
OK, nothing stood out.

Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Looks like water! Didn’t smell of much and tasted even worse. Weak, watery and no fun at all. Why did this ever become populat?

This rating is of little value. This is the only sake I have ever tried. I tried it at room temperature, warm, and chilled. I like room temp the best and the flavor is certainly different than anything I’m used to.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 750ml bottle, pours nearly colorless crystal clear, a slight beige opaqueness. Aroma and taste of alcohol, rice, overripe melon and a hint of vinegar. Dry, sweet and sour. Medium body with a long lasting finish. Tried both chilled and room temperature. Compared to common sake imported from Japan, this tastes and looks similar and is also very affordable in Europe.

Easy going cider without being classy. Loads of lemons and some citruts fruits in the back. Quite drinkable, refreshing but in a way to sour and thin.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours out watery with some light vanilla colour hints. Nose of rice and flowers. Taste of rice water, citrus, flowers and perfume. Finishes little bit too dry and acid, otherwise it is quite nice and easy to drink.

750ml bottle. After a very long day, ive decided to do a shot of this since thats all left in the bottle anyway. Plus this has been taking up space in my beer fridge for the last year, so lets finish this puppy up and make some room! Pours clear. Aroma of mineral spirits, fermenting rice, and alcohol. Taste is boozy, grainy, sweet rice, and rubbing alcohol.
