Similar to the Josen in every way, but just a slightly more pleasing aroma and flavor - still grain plum and rice...maybe hints of citrus and grass. rocbyter (2118) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Lightly fruity grain aroma. Nearly clear in color. Lightly sweet beginning with a moderate burn in the finish. danlo (3019) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2016
180ml bottle from the Japan Centre. Very pale yellowish colour, no head and aroma of rice, melon, alcohol. Taste is rice, hints of melon, citrus & caramel, with earthy & grassy alcohol, warming. Slick oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering dry earthy warm boozy finish. Quite drinkable. Inbreak (5804) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2016
27.05.2016, 0,28l bottle @ home:Beer5000 (6440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015
Flat, looks more or less like water. Aroma is slightly mineraly, rice, minerals, grass, alcohol, hay, hints of citrus. Taste is slightly dry boozy, minerals, rice, booze, paper, weeds. Medium bitterness, boozy mouthfeel. Boring.
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.
