Bought this on a cruise because it was $9 in a world where a Bud Light costs $7. Pours slightly yellow, like urine if you’re fairly well hydrated. Aroma is cheap vodka, sour grapes, and rice water. Taste is abysmally bad when chilled, blandly harsh when room temperature, and barely okay to swallow when warmed. When warmed, tastes like apple juice mixed with the water left over after cooking rice... plus some Popov-grade vodka. My wife would have nothing to do with it, and I don’t rember how I finished the bottle. For the price, I guess this is good if you like sake, but I learned the hard way that I do not. This is better than Gekkeikan, at least.

trapped (1359) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 9, 2015
Clear slightly yellowish, very light fruity aroma, very little rice taste, no palate at all. Not being a sake expert, I am assuming that this is pretty generic one since there is no specific taste.

200€ worth of beer event. This, if served extra cold might so the sake thing. I am not a guru of sake, but i have tasted better ones already. Probably good with raw fish.
