    It's still quite good, but I wouldn't expect this one to gain a 5-star rating. More likey 4-star.

    The reason for that is the brewers rice - which is the main grain in the food. That's a waste product and not present in the other formula. Beyond that though, it contains primarily good ingredients, and a level of meat content that you can reasonably have confidence in. Overall, a pretty good food :)
