OVER ALL:

Aroma is quiet pleasant, reminds me of stew. # large meaty pieces of fish. half a hand full of veggies. I'm impressed this much stuff was in that little can. First bite really threw me off. my taste buds were confused as hell. Semi soft fish, peppery sauce is very prominent, lingering fishy after taste. The can suggests to serve them heated. So I heated them up next. After heating, the aroma became lots more prominent. Heating would be the way to go with these. It made them alot more tolerable. Fishy after taste remained dominant. Fish is on the dry side. i'll give these guys 1/2 a sardine and that just may be the beer talking. Would not eat again.
