COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NAMA SAKE is a draft-style sake that is purified not by heat pasteurization but rather through micro-filterization. Since high temperatures can often change the subtle flavors of sake, this micro-filterization process better retains all of the original flavors of sake. "Nama " means fresh, indicating that it is bottled immediately after production rather than being aged for a few months like our other sakes.

First sake. Poured from a cold bottle. Very clear liquid with a very subtle hint of yellow. Smells like fruit and plum. Slight grain flavor, plum and alcohol flavors. I don’t have a base for rating, there for I will rate off of personal likes.

Pour is clear, still, and light yellow color. Warm rice aroma with alcohol. Flavor is slightly vegetal and warming alcohol.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear with a faint yellow tinge. A bit of soft banana, warm rice. Medium bodied, soft rice and a bit of isopropyl. Warm and full of rice. A touch of melon, a bit astringent. Decent enough.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours clear in color with just a touch of carbonation to it. There is a strong anise aroma with some apple juice, vanilla, graham cracker, and butterscotch. It’s lightly fruity with some hints of green melon. The flavor is quite off-putting to me. Heavy butterscotch sweetness, alcohol, and melon. Light vinegar on the finish. Sort of a medicinal flavor all around.

jolo (877) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle 300 ml. A clear yellow colour with a no head. An aroma of melon and alcohol. The taste is light sweet. A medium body, oily texture, no carbonation and a long finish. Sorry but I do not really like Saké.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2011
180ml bottle - $6.00 at Kuroshio Sushi Bar and Grille in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours clear, pours still, baby. Smell: Floral, rice-scented, boozy notes with some subtle sweet accents to it. Taste: Sweetish upfront, with qualities of mashed flower petals and rice. Hint of sweet vanilla cupcakes. A drop of distilled fruitiness. Slightly boozy and warming, finishing out the same, with a slow fade out. Mouthfeel: Light, cool, and easy on the tongue. Overall: Not the best, certainly no, but fairly easy to drink.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Colorless and smelled like watered down vodka. More specifically, musty like rain (in the best way possible). The taste was like rice vinegar with a slight gin taste that warmed the belly as it went down. Worth the price, just not that impressive of a sake at all.

bhensonb (10792) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle from BevMo in Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek, CA. Pours clear with no carbonation. Pleasant melon type scent. Thick, medium body. A bit gluey. Flavor is clean. Fairly fresh. Something like melon is mostly what I get. Much more palatable than many.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle from Jungle Jim,s. Served cold. Poured clear color with good legs. Light rice, melon and alcohol aroma. Light to medium body with a dry texture. Light green apple sweet flavor with a light sweet alcohol finish that was of short duration. Drinkable sake.
