    Very good, maybe the best “with lemon” tin I’ve had to date? Had a solid amount of lemon flavor that is more than most tins that claim to have it. Fish texture was semi-firm – not dry – but also different than most other tins. I’d maybe call it halfway between sardine in oil and sardine in water? Certainly came across as less rich, less oily than a usual tin and that was a nice change. Had a BIG slice of lemon underneath the fish and I absolutely loved that (even if the slice had already given up most of its lemon flavor to the fish/oil). Salt level on this is lower than my preference but that’s an easy adjustment.

    I liked these slightly more than the Matiz in lemon (which have better fish but don’t have enough lemon). Pretty interesting first try of this brand for me and it was definitely a good start. I do think this could be my regular “with lemon” tin in my pantry. Recommended!

    Between the description of the fish and the look of the packaging, I had high hopes for this tin from the moment I ordered it. The sardines are big boys – mine had 3 large fish that were flaky, perfectly tender, virtually no texture from any of the bones, and underneath was a huge chunk of preserved lemon. The citrus flavors were 100% there and this tin knocked it out of the park and was on the nose per the description it offers. Agreed with the other reviewer – these are more lemony to me than the Matiz tin, but both are great options (especially at varying price points).

    I ate mine garlic confit on toast topped with hummus and lemon zest – incredible. I will be ordering these again.
