Color preview too dark

Bug Description

Having a beer glass image for color preview is nice feature! Thank You!

However it seems that the displayed RGB color in BrewTarget is consistently too dark for the calculated SRM color value. This is evident, when one compares the color preview of BrewTarget to other free and commercial brewing software (BeerSmith, BeerTools Pro, BrewMate, StrangeBrew) as well to SRM color charts.

As an example please see attached image. Altough the image is for SRM 7.3, the result/conclusion is the same across any SRM value -- BrewTarget beer glass is always too dark for the calculated SRM.
