A numerical expression of the total amount of acidity. A high acid level indicates sharpness and richness, while a low indicates lightness and sweetness.
The ratio of rice remaining after scraping from the outside. By shaving off the surface layer, sake can be made with a distinctive aroma and free of impurities.
"With a distinctive smoky aroma reminiscent of smoked bamboo shoots, this sake also features a sweet flavor like steamed sticky rice or thick soup, creating a complex taste. While it has a lingering sweetness like beet sugar, the acidity makes it light and easy to drink. It's perfect for a barbecue in a riverside or natural setting. We recommend serving it chilled as a cold sake."
