Sake temperature has an effect on both the aroma and taste of sake. Cold temperatures can emphasize the crisp, clean, dry, and even bitter aspects of sake, while warm temperatures can bring out the sweetness and umami, and mellow the flavor. A good middle ground is room temperature, or about 70 F.
Sometimes you may drink sake at this temperature just as a result of leaving your chilled sake out
