This is the second bottle tasted by the Shizuoka Geeks on December 7th, 2007

Hana no Mai Brewery (Hamamtsu City) Kura dashi Ginjo Nama Sake
Rice: Shizuoka Yamada Nishiki
Rice milled down to 55%

Clarity: Very clear

Colour: Transparent

Aroma: Flowers, light

Body: Velvety

Taste: very dry impression.
Turns sharpish with food. Reminiscent of custard/vanilla/almonds.
Tends to go through sweet/sour cycles with food later.

Overall: Sharpish dry sake, but tends to turn “sweet and sour” with food.
Would probably appeal more to gentlemen than to ladies

    I am glad you had a chance to enjoy Hananomai. We tried three kuradashi nama at 9:00 am in the morning while you were busy with healthy cricket game. I have to try it with food next time!

    I must say that drinking at 9:00 am would simply kill me!
    LOL
