OVERALL:

A faint hot sauce aroma upon opening. Nine little fish to the tin. A medium-textured fish. The sauce lets itself known on the first bite; it actually has a mild heat. No strong flavors or aftertaste. The hot sauce flavor and heat stick around for a few seconds or so. Not a spiny fish, no scales detected. I would eat again. 3 sardines.

OVERALL:

A faint smoke aroma upon opening. Five good-looking, uniformed fish to the tin. A firm fish, the smoke flavor hits you on the first bite, does not overpower the fish. Not a spiny fish, a clean-tasting fish. I'm pleasantly surprised, no fishy taste or after taste. The only aftertaste I detect is the smoke flavoring. 3 sardines. Would eat again.

Even though both tins are Great Value brands, both are a product of Thailand, and both can be found sharing the same shelf at the market; the tins with the double green fish art is the better tin of fish of the two labels.
