The Connetable Les Enfandines Sardines in Oil were as good as one could expect from fish lacking in skin and bones. Firm and not overly dry and not too fishy. They tasted clean in some nice light oil yet had an indescribable aftertaste. I find that sardine filets lack the moisture and flavor that comes with having skin and bones in the mix. If having sterile sardines is your thing then these puppies are for you and would probably receive a five tin rating.
Now onto the Eva's. The Eva brand never disappoints and these were no exception. These sardines were a pleasure to eat. Moist and flavorful with a hint of lemon that was not overpowering. I opened the can to notice a piece of lemon resting, partially dissolved, on top of some beautiful fish. Oh, man! I totally recommend these to any society members or to those who have the fortitude to appreciate tinned sardines.
The Coopers Sparkling Ale is one of my favorites. It is an unfiltered, deep colored ale with tiny bubbles representative of a trappist style ale. Delicious!
