Wifey and I were taking Carlsons CLO for a while and liked it a lot. It isn't expensive and the lemon flavor was very tolerable.
I've read some conflicting things about the quality of Carlsons. I bought a bottle of Green Pastures "Cinammon Tingle". With shipping, it cost me $60! For an 8oz bottle! This is absurd!
Secondly, the taste is awful. Cinnamon Tingle was the only one the company had in stock. I also do not like the fact that it leaves a film like sensation in my mouth.
Is Nordic Naturals any good?

The reason that Green Pasture is the most frequently recommended cod liver oil is that the way it is anufactured is very unique. It is made without the use of heat, so it retains all of its natural vitamins and minerals, unlike the majority of products on the market. Most companies use a heated method which kills off all of the natural nutrients. Some add in synthetic vitamins some don't bother. Green Pastures Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil is a natural, whole food source of Vitamins A and D. Green Pasture also has an encapsulated version of their cod liver oil that is much easier to swallow, and Peaceful Planet offers free shipping. If you wanted straight [fermented cod liver oil], the price would only be $30. A good tip is that popping your capsules in the freezer will keep them frozen until they travel your intestines, preventing fish burps.

I'm not so sure this brand would be more affordable when it comes out, but I'd imagine it would have most of the benefits of the fermented type without the taste.
