3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First sake, so I have no idea what this should be like, but here goes...
Clear and colorless, with pretty good legs on the side of the glass. The aroma is green apples, juniper, caramel, and corn syrup. Mild, fruity sweetness, and a herbal bitterness. Fairly thick body, smooth, but with a vegetal feel, slightly grainy, and fairly astringent. There’s a relatively significant alcohol warming through the finish. Overall, this is a fun and flavorful drink.

Yeah it’s plummy alright - easy to drink, light, almost no bitterness, but definite sake taste. It doesn’t have a telltale alcoholic or bitter taste, so it’ll sneak up on you! A little sweet/fruity. Pleasant. Recommended for under $10.

My first sake rating... Pours clear crystal, lightly hazy. Fruity aroma with some rice. Taste is dry and balanced sweet. Body is light, dry and fresh. Nice.

Bottle - crystal clear color, mildly sweet fruity aroma and flavor with a dry finish, a little alcohol down the back of the throat at the end too

Pours a clear color. Mouthfeel is smooth as water. Flavor profile is simple. Some rice some koji and a little bit of sweet licorice. Not offensive but far too simple.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
4/8/12. 300mL bottle. Super clear pour, maybe just a tinge of yellow-ish in there, but mostly very clear. Loose, thin legs that take forever to develop. Sweet rice pudding aroma with touches of marshmallow and a big alcohol aspect. It’s like rice pudding mixed with vodka. Sweet rice pudding and marshmallow flavor as well, again with a big alcohol kick. Thin body. It’s not as bad as I was expecting, honestly.

Bottle... Clear and colorless. Served in a small glass that didn’t allow for legwork. Fruity, rice aroma. Light-bodied and a touch thin. Fruity flavor - warming too. Finishes fruity, refreshing and a bit dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank during dinner at Sake Toro in Frisco. Clear with an aroma of almonds and a little bit of alcohol. The flavor has some nice rice and melon notes in it. The alcohol is not very well hidden. Not a great sake but it went well with our meal.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
No head (still).
Body is colorless (faint tinge of yellow).
Aroma is notes of grain, Elmer’s glue, alcohol, melon rind.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Light to medium body, watery/silky texture, no carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly astringent.
Bog standard aroma for sake, but it’s admittedly clean and silky in the mouth. Easy-drinking and smooth, but not particularly notable or memorable. Average overall.
