After 4 days, it is good and drinkable. It quenches like water but satisfies like beer. I look forward to mowing the lawn with this is my keg. Lightly bittered, but no hop flavor. May try to increasse the Aroma steep to 3 min., but its actually quite good as-is.

Just as advertised. A tasty, refreshing drink - and you can have a few with no worries. Just what I wanted for the start of summer.
