    “Ingredients: Water, Sorghum, Hops, Yeast”

    Tastes a lot like molasses (almost a little burnt flavor) but with a much smoother mouth feel, not nearly so thick.

    wikipedia tells me

    In China, sorghum is fermented and distilled to produce maotai, which is regarded as one of the country’s most famous liquors.

    and

    Sorghum is in the subfamily Panicoideae and the tribe Andropogoneae (the tribe of big bluestem and sugar cane).

    witch I’m guessing is why¬† it was chosen as a fermentable material to replace wheat, barley, rye and oats. Though I wonder if that would make this not beer but maotai. Also I’m gonna say the relation to sugar cane would explain the molasses flavour.

    While hops are on the ingredient list they are almost non existent in the flavour profile leaving a very sweet sweet beer.

    need to make a rating system for my reviews …. rating coming soon.

    Reviewing (drinking) away,

    Stacey
