1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
