Is my homemade 'kraut supposed to smell/taste like this?

I made homemade garlic beet sauerkraut (using green cabbage) and it smells a bit old gym sock (but does not taste like it). Is this how sauerkraut is supposed to smell? It also tastes mostly salty and not very sour even though I let it ferment for well over a month. Is homemade 'kraut just milder than store bought?
