I was WAY too harsh in my previous review of this beer, and I chalk that up to being a n00b brewer and not appreciating how time can really change a beer for the better.

Now that this beer has had some time to bottle condition (not much, a couple weeks?) it is much better.

The beer starts off with a sweet taste and finishes with a nice bitter hoppiness which is what I was looking for all along.
Even the sorghum twang has mellowed to a great extent.

Would I brew this again? Yes, but with the changes I mentioned above.
Am I happy drinking it? ABSOLUTELY, it's still better than any commercially produced sorghum beers I have ever had. It's just not quite as good as some other beers I have made myself.

Here is my first try at a GF...

Pale Ale, turned out good. I haven't tried any commercial GF brews to see where it stands but compared to my regular brews I think it is a success. Will keep trying to see if I can get it better.
