OVER ALL:
A faint fish and tomato aroma upon opening. Four fillets to the the tin. These fillets are boneless, not skinless. A dry fish, a bland tasting sauce, tin needs a shot of vinegar (more vinegar) or hot sauce. A slight watery after taste. no strong flavor or after taste. I was informed after eating this tin that I smelled of fish... strongly. Would be a better tin with something than alone. (that's not how I rate them)  2 Sardines.
