Need to add the producer too, there’s already one sake of theirs on the site but under the wrong producer…

There you go! :smiley:

less about ID but a bit more about figuring something out:

This is the common one:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hakutsuru-white-crane-draft-sake/28750/

What are the chances this is the same (an alias):
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hakutsuru-tokusen-jyunmai-namachozoshu/888718/

Numerous online retailers seem to have this entry with the regular Draft label:

https://www.japancentre.com/en/products/15307-hakutsuru-junmai-namachozo-draft-sake

and what are the chances this is also an alias:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hakutsuru-white-crane-nama-chozoshu-sake/83092/

and same for this:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hakutsuru-tokusen-junmai-namachozoshu/888718/

one more from this brewery

Is this
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hakutsuru-nada-kobe-sake/1164865/

potentially an alias of one of the beers already listed? For anyone that can read Japanese @KyotoLefty

It’s here:

and what are the chances that is actually this:

ABV is different but probably the same base stuff.

Hakutsuru is the biggest sake brewer in Japan. Most of the stuff is pretty horrible, even the Daiginjos.

They have a pretty cool museum in Kobe, though, set up like an old-fashioned brewery.

It’s worth a stop to see that, then go straight to some of the other Nada breweries for tastings.
