Well, hard to say, German Style Lite... um, is this a Lager, an Ale? What temp has it been sitting at? Personally I let all my primaries sit for 3 weeks, then I either bottle or now (yeah!) force carb them and wait another two to three weeks to even think about drinking them... sure I'll taste them along the way but it is really worth waiting for...
That said, I would surprise him that you made beer, explain that it will take a long time but it will be worth it. Then divert him for as long as it takes for the beer to mature :-)
