OVER ALL:
Probably the hardest damn pull top I've had the pleasure of opening(this brand). The tab broke off toward the end, sending sauce every where. Very strong smell ing sauce. There is two the tin, a sour aroma creeps from the tin.. Scales, Scales, and more damn Scales. A very vinegary tasting sauce, it really overpowers the fish. A very crumbly fish. After the vinegary wang goes away, a nice heat is made known. The heat is the only thing good about this tin. 1/2 a sardine. That's based on the heat alone. I would not eat again.
