    The lemon essence was subtle,but unique. I will buy this again.

    As others have said, the lemon flavor was really subtle which I enjoyed. The sardines themselves were large and pretty firm. I really enjoyed these and will buy them again.

    An excellent tin, at a great price point. This is my favorite lemon-flavored sardine tin so far. The essence is subtle, as other reviews have mentioned, and I additionally found that the fishiness was muted, and well balanced by the lemon scent and taste. I ate these heated and then smashed, on top of rice. A must try!

    rocking. 3 firm large fish packed into the tin. greeted by lemony oil scent.

    firm fleshed fish. skin and slight soft bones factored into the tactile chew. the citron, salty umami bomb made the darker fleshed portions of the sardine my favorite.

    These are great; I enjoyed these on some crackers with chili crisp. The fish are big, tender, and have a mild fish flavor. The flavor is called “lemon essence” and I think that’s quite accurate. It’s not sour like lemon juice at all. It reminds me of a lemon jolly rancher, but not sweet obviously. I would get these again, especially for $5.

    Like others mentioned, the lemon essence is exactly that – just a mild, subtle lemon flavor. The fish were firm and fairly large, perfectly flavored with salty and umami notes without being too fishy thanks to the lemon.

    $5 price point is stellar and I will definitely be back for these.

    Great tin, great price. 3 large intact fish, that look way more “natural” (i.e. colors less muted) in color than others. Skin was intact as well. No scales in this tin though I’ve heard that can be a problem with Matiz. Can’t say I really tasted the lemon unless eating them plain. The subtle flavoring won’t really stand up to any additions, but that wasn’t really a problem since the fish themselves were high quality.

    Really enjoying Matiz, seems like a great quality of fish for the price. Very robust little fishes, beautifully intact in the tin.

    Flavors were literally perfectly balanced, citrus didnt overwhelm and allowed for the fish to remain the star.

    Couldn’t recommend Matiz, and this tin in particular, any higher.
