ilovedarkbeer (2711) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Had on ice at dinner the other night. Clear pour with weak legs. Nose is boozey and rice like with hardly any other flavors. Mouth feel is dry and a bit grainy. I can tell that this is not a high quality sake but the taste is decent and gets the job done. Warming finish.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Glass at Tany 52 (NYC)... Crystal clear, colorless beverage (much like water). The aroma is very vineous and alcoholic. Grainy flavor with a warm blast of alcohol (although the brew is served chilled). Balanced. Extra dry mouthfeel with no carbonation. I don’t know if I will persue this sake rating thing. Sake is just so different that your average "beer". I’m having trouble seperating the apples from the oranges. Hmmm?
