OVERALL:
A pleasant oil and a faint sardine aroma upon opening. A tightly packed tin of fish; twelve little fish to the tin. A fresh-tasting fish with no strong fish taste or after. A delicate textured fish almost falls apart while removing from tin. The oil leaves no after taste, not a spiny fish. I would eat again. 5 Sardines

OVERALL:
No noticeable aroma upon opening. A beautiful golden hue to the oil. Four, plump, tightly packed fish to the tin. Oil really compliments the fish. A great-tasting fish, the fish, taste as if they jumped straight from the ocean to the tin. No strong flavors or after-taste. A roe-filled fish, roe is not noticeable while eating. An even medium texture throughout the fish. Not a spiny fish. Would and will eat again. 5 sardines.

OVERALL:
No aroma upon opening. Seven fish to the tin, a flavorful tin of fish. A medium-textured fish. Fish have a skinless and boneless likeness to them, without the dryness and denseness S&B sometimes have. No strong flavors; oil does not over-power the fish. This is a perfect tin of fish; tin leaves you wanting more. I will eat again. 5 Sardines

OVERALL:
A faint, almost undetectable aroma of lemon upon opening. Four plump, tightly packed fish to the tin. The oil possesses a lovely amber hue. A soft textured fish, a fresh-tasting fish; no strong or overpowering flavors. The lemon flavor is subtle, with no after-taste. Not a spiny fish; scales are present, not noticeable. A refreshing tin of fish. I would and will eat again. ( could easily be a favorite)  5 Sardines.

OVERALL:
A brief marinade aroma is detected upon opening; it disperses as quickly as it lets itself known. A medium-textured fish. A very mild and flavorful marinade. A great blend of spices, nothing is fighting to make itself known, a very well balance of flavors. The best-marinaded sardines I've had to date leaves no strong aftertaste, a very clean-tasting fish. ( I wonder if they have a master blender for spices and marinades as the states do for bourbon?) Perhaps they kiss each sardine and pack them with love. They are that good. I would and will eat again. 5 sardines.
