OVER ALL:
This is my last large can of sardines in tomato sauce I will be rating, mostly due to the fact they all seem to taste like nothing of worthy mentions. *Saying that to my self, I slice my thumb while opening this can, I must of pissed off some Sardina god of some type.*  A very strong tomato aroma upon opening, aroma reminds me of Pork -N-Beans, * Now i'm stuck with the song from the 80's by Junkyard Band "Sardines & Pork & Beans" in my head* A tart almost flavorless tasting fish. 9 large pieces of fish to the can. Very spiny, the fish crumbles while removing from the can: would not eat again. No Sardines.

A very faint tomato aroma upon opening can. very runny sauce, a good textured fish.  Sauce is a tad sweet, with a slight tart after taste. Surprisingly, a can this size, does not posses large chunks of fish; but is actually small fish cut up into chunks.(A first for me, very nice) No fishy after taste nor is it a spiny fish. I may would eat again. This is a can that would be great in a pasta or another type dish. 3 1/2 sardines.
