UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 08.02.2014, 0,75l bottle sampled @ home:
Clear straw colored, flat. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, rice, alcohol, hay, yeast. Taste is kind of raw boozy, rice, alcohol, harsh hay, hints of licorice. Slightly medical bitterness, warming alcoholic mouthfeel. Not bad, just too plain and raw.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
From 0.75l bottle @ Matbřrsen. Crystal clear with an appearance that looks scary much like water. Server somewhat hot, the aroma is watery sweet, clear rice and hints of orange zest. Warming! Both on the tongue and in the throat. Alcohol, rice and a strange banana/apple sweetness. To raw. By far not the best sake I’ve had. 27.10.2012

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Body is almost clear as water and a bit oily, no head. Aroma is alcohol, fusel and a faint scent of marzipan, feels sweet in aroma. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic with a hint of harsh bitterness. Behind the alcoholic flavor the body feels more soft and almost chewy in palate. More fruity in aftertaste. A bit rough in style but not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 75cl. A clear one, flat and quite oily. Slighlty alcoholic on the nose, with cooked rice and somethng earthy. That goes for the flavor too, to me it’s too rough. Cooked rice, earth, mold and a little citrusy touch. Lightly oily, warming and sort of smooth on the palate, with a warming finish. Not bad in any way, just too plain, rough and boring. 120124
