Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015
280 ml bottle. Body is clear like water with slightly oily consistence. Mild aroma of sake yeast, light rice water and hint of almond. Flavor is stronger, and quite sweet with perfumed/floral sake yeast, a bit fruity and warming alcohol. Medium body and average aftertaste. Not very complex, quite easy to drink, no off flavors. Might be a nice introduction to the world of sake.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - looks like water. Nose - total solvent note. It has a pure alcohol note too, maybe some fruit. Taste - alcohol dominated, the esters create some sort of banana thing. Palate - full bodied with a tangy boozy follow through. Overall - booze dominates.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. More or less colorless, clear and oily. Weak on the nose, with a pleasant, subtle apricot touch. Hints of rice and alcohol. Fruity flavor with both apricot and apples, all quite subtle. The rice and alcohol are quite subdued, but there’s a warming touch to it. Medium, oily mouthfeel. Lasting finish with alcohol and some fruity hints. A quite nice one, subtle all the way, but well balanced. 110129

KyotoLefty (8450) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Light and a bit thin, not a whole lot of flavor but nothing off either. A bit of spice, fruit, rice. Decent but forgetable.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle 30 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. 14.7% in my version. Very sweet rice aroma - amost sugary. Medium body, again a candy-like rice character before a very boozy finish. Perfect for a complete booze up I reckon. 290111
