280 ml bottle. Body is clear like water with slightly oily consistence. Mild aroma of sake yeast, light rice water and hint of almond. Flavor is stronger, and quite sweet with perfumed/floral sake yeast, a bit fruity and warming alcohol. Medium body and average aftertaste. Not very complex, quite easy to drink, no off flavors. Might be a nice introduction to the world of sake.
