Nose: Heavy waft of tuna fish when you pop the top.
Eye: Ugly. I like the visual variety of the skin and bones.
Fork Feel: Firm, almost too firm. It feels hard-packed.
Tongue: Honestly, my nose impression is carrying
through, tastes like tuna fish to me. It says it’s packed in olive oil but I don’t pick up much of that. I thought the higher than normal calorie count for a can of sardines would suggest a lot of oil I realized it’s just a bit more fish – not a bad thing. However, I think I would prefer flavor – either from oil or skin and bones.
Mouth Feel: It’s still very firm. And dry. The inner suburban kid in my is dying to add mayo. Maybe it should be flaked with a fork more that just devoured out of a can.
Nose: Pop the top and it’s not too lemony or peppery. Fairly office safe.
Eye: No skin viewable. I like skin. Does filleting mean take off skin? I’ll have to look that up.
Fork Feel: The fishies are solid and chunky on the fork. I like it when you can stab the little bits and it doesn’t just squish. It helps it feel like a meal.
Tongue: I get a lot of pepper but not much lemon. Not much fishy either. A few bits in I get some lemon but it’s more of a bitter lemon.
Mouth Feel: Solid flesh on this fish but fishiness doesn’t hang around. Not too oily. I miss the bones. I like to feel the bones of small creatures nash between my teeth. It boosts my confidence.
