Courtesy boboski. Served chilled. Clear, with faint, pale yellow hues. Aroma is sweet, floral, and yeasty. Sweet, rice syrup background in the flavor with floral highlights, dough, and faint citrus. Slick, full mouthfeel that is a bit cloying. Smooth swallow with a clean finish. Alcohol does not interfere. Nice, but I found to be a bit too sweet. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Pours a really light pale yellow color with a syrupy texture. Smells of breads, citrus, and kind of a yeaty aroma. The taste has a sweet cinnamon flavor, with a good amount of heat left on the tongue. Definitely has some doughy flavors, but its kind of sweet and mildly bitter. Has a mildly grainy flavor, but nothing too bad. I’m still trying to gather my sake taste buds and differentiate flavors, but I thought this was pretty good. taunusmies (357) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2007
Clear, slightly yellow colour. Smooth mouthfeel but with a little bite of alcohol.
As fridge cold, taste was sweet with rice and some fruity elements. A bit sour aftertaste. Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle courtesy of OFortuna. First sake rating. Crystal clear with just a hair of yellow hue. Aroma difficult to describe, perhaps light rice mold, yet not unpleasant. Mild flavor unlike the aroma. Smooth and slick on the tongue. Medium bodied, not quite dry. A little alcohol warming. Slightly sour, dry finish. thedm (6148) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled sake from an online bottle shop poured absolutely clear with with no bubbles at all. The aroma was mild rice. The mouth feel was crisp start with a mild vinous finish that lingered well into the aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild vinous semi-sweet rice. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

First off, let me say that this product doesn’t smell nearly enough of toe-fungus for me. Its unacceptable aroma translates into crevice-born flavor when cold, and mellows to almost-palatable fruityness when warmed. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Clear pale yellow-green. Dry, sweet citrus aroma that’s simply delectable. Definitely some watermelon. Alcohol is not terrible for a sake, a kick at the end but overall easy-going, sweet and yummy. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2006
Bottled. My second sake, if I remember correct. Clear see-through no-coloured and no headed.<!-- br -->
Fridge cold (7-8 C). Aroma is alcohol, rice and citrus fruity. Flavour is rice, a bit alcohol, watermelon and some citric hints. The alcohol noteable is quite "sharpedged". Dry palate. <!-- br -->
Room Temperature (17-18C). Aroma gets a bit "fuller" of the same as colder. The main difference is the alcohol which now fits in better both in aroma and flavour. Dry palate. <!-- br -->
Warmed up to about 30C. Smooth as whole impression, the alcohol in not as sharpedged anymore, and it somehow feels even more full than the lower temperatures. A bit warm vodkaish, but the fruityness (citrus and watermelon) was a big positive thing compared to Gekkeikan (Laurel Crown) Traditional Light Sake. Quite easy to drink, especially when warmer. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Served chilled. Clear body. Sweet slightly grassy aroma. Sweet flavor, light rice, some melon hints. Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2006
A very pale yellow body with an aroma of stale rice and some light sweets. Taste is very interesting, almost like a chocolate rice pudding. Sweet ending.
