Beerenberger (1576) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Subtle floral aroma. Pours clear. The taste is Medium sweet. Vanilla, almond notes, alchocol warmth, with a slight graininess in the finish. Full body with a creamy texture. Overall, I liked this, but a little goes a long way.

Erzengel (5800) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2015
Thanks to Simon for sharing! Typical melon-like alcoholic smooth nose. Neutral smooth fruity nose. Very smooth mild, fresh melon with a smooth and mild but a bit neutral body. Easy to drink with a fruity mild aftertaste. Not too bad.

KoRoBeNiKi (133) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pour from a Bottle at Hagi, a Japanese Sake Bar/Izakaya (finger food.) Aroma of rice, almonds, alcohol. Appearance: Water. Flavor is rice, almond, and a lot of alcohol on the end. Palate is alcoholic with some sweetness. I donít see as much of a point of this when there is Shochu instead. Donít let them sell this Junmai for a high price, itís whiskey like.

crossovert (9721) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2014
180ml twist off frosted glass bottle. Since 1711 and evidently produced in California. Pours clear. Aroma is soy and marzipan. Flavor is soy, icing, dryer than other sakeís ive had but infernally boozy.

OldMrCrow (2197) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2014

Flavors of citrus and pear, but sweetish and ultimately a bit harsh. Iím not an experienced sake drinker but this is less impressive than the other couple of dozen Iíve tried.

Sake is really not something I know a whole lot about, but to call this dry is a bit of a stretch. Still relatively easy to drink, though.

obguthr (4769) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Cantaloupe, koji, cheesy aroma. Clear yellow. Koji flavor, melon sweetness on the back of the palate. Light to medium body, not overly warm.

ClubGonzo (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC feat. Yngwie and Meilby. Clear water-looking body. Nose is pear, tropical fruits, fusel alcohol and hints of nuts and meaty umami. Taste is destilled rice, papery alcoholic tones and hints of fusel alcohol and nuts. Dry, parching finish. Not my cup of tea, or sake for that matter.

Inbreak (3111) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
16.06.2014, 0,18l bottle @ BBGTC tasting:
Looks almost like water. Aroma has a mild with a slightly sweet touch of rice, followed by a tiny touch of alcohol and licorice. Taste is kind of dry and harsh, a little boozy, rice, minerals, hay. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea either...

Bottle 180ml @ ClubGonzo
Pours clear as water. Aroma has notes of rice, alcohol, pear and hint of nutty. Taste is light to medium sweet with a warm, dry, rice and slightly nutty finish. Body is medium, texture is oily with no carbonation.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear, oily and flat. Lightly yellowish. The aroma has pears and some tropical fruits, with a touch of alcohol and rice. Itís oily and full-bodied, warming and dry, on the palate. Pears and tropical fruits in the flavor, hints of almond and flowers. Lasting fruity finish with a lemony hint. Pretty decent this one, wouldnít mind having it again. 140616
