Eikun being a comparatively small brewery, a lot of its brands are mainly sold very locally.
I found this particular bottle in their own minuscule shop.

Eikun Brewery: “Oninama” (Goblin Unpasteurized) Honjozo

Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in April 2008

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Almost transparent
Aroma: Light. Complex and fruity: apples, vanilla
Body: Velvety
Taste: Short tail. Fruity: green apples, bitter chocolate. Smooth on palate. Complex.
Very soft in spite of its “nama”/unpasteurized nature.
Pleasant and elegant.
Almonds making an entry when drunk away from food.

Overall: Surprisingly smooth for a “nama”/unpasteurized sake. Light and feminine in character.
Complex and gentle.
Perfect with food, especially sashimi and vegetables.
A sake for all seasons.
