Clean dry cold it’s delicious. Better than the large junmai bottle but hakutsuru is the best big boy brewery. This is delicious cold.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a very lightly hazed white color. Still. Aroma was light alcohol notes, some light fruit perhaps. Definite rice? Flavor of slightly sweet alcohol. Served sort of cold - I think we kept asking them to chill it more and more because it was 100 degrees outside. Pretty drinkable and clean.

Little bottle. Pours clear. Has a taste of rice and some alcohol. Rubbing alcohol aroma, especially as it warms. Smooth and easy to drink as long as it is chilled. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kind of mixed feelings here. Starting off with some sweetness, mildk and rice being really smooth this one turns out to be a bit sour and kind of grainy towards the end. Average.
