Clear as water, of course. The aroma is faint yet perfumy with grasses and melons. Smooth to drink. The flavor is grassy with melon and a touch of anise. A very quiet drink - until it hits bottom and the strong abv is felt.maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2006

Served chilled. Clear body. Sweet slightly grassy aroma. Sweet flavor, light rice, some melon hints. oh6gdx (26485) - 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.

Bottled. A light golden sake. The aroma has very light notes of rice. The flavor is sweet with notes of rice and alcohol, leading to a dry finish, where the rice note lingers. The alcohol leaves a slight burn in the mouth. oteyj (2138) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2012
Clear pour with no head. Fermented cider and pineapple in the nose with nectar fruit, white rice water, and alcohol in the flavor. Supple body with a sweet tropical alcohol finish.

Clear. Aroma has alcohol and yeast. Alcohol in flavor as well. A little sweet but chemicals in the finish. bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2016
750ml. Doughy stewed rice and vegetables with some pineapple, Apple and white grapes...hints of plastic. Cooked rice, white doughy bread, white grapes and under ripe pineapple. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2008
300 ml bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (January 2008), consumed a few minutes out of the fridge from a White Wintery Winery glass. Quite clear, with a faint yellowish oily tinge, still, with rather thick and slow-running legs....pineapple-vanilla-ricey aroma is lightly doughy, somewhat strongly alcoholic right out of the bottle but smoothes and softens after a couple of minutes....body is fruity yet dry, rather mineralic from midpalate on; reminiscent of some of the drier, harder Rieslings I’ve had....a bit thick and syrupy in the mouth; the alcoholic and mineralic qualities at the finish are a bit too harsh....my first Daiginjo, and I am not terribly impressed, though I realize that this large commercial brewery probably isn’t the best source for such a thing.... tomer (3743) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 24, 2009
0.72L bottle with 16% labeled as "Junmai Dai-ginjyo Gekkeikan", so i really hope this is the right sake, any other thoughts will be wellcome. Served chilled.
Uniform light yellow colour, aroma of rice, light sweetness and an alcoholic presence which is not to strong. Pleasant sweetish aftertaste.
Doesn’t feel like an overly complex sake but still a mellow and enjoyable sake which goes well with sushi and makes a great match with pickled ginger. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Nice clear water color.Thin watery aroma of fruit maybe melon as some have said but it could be something different.I’m just unsure due to my limited access and trials of this kind of brew.The flavor was very nice.Mild flavor with a watery thing going on here with plenty of alcohol and only a mild hint of fruit.I thought that Sake was supposed to get better with the more money you spend on them but this one isn’t that great.i have a cheap Sake that has better flavor then this one does.Oh well gotta try to learn more about’em
