Not really a big problem, but it's something to try to avoid. It's definitely better to chill and then aerate.
It can cause chill haze and some off-flavors. Not a crucial thing at all, but ideally, you try not to aerate while it's hot.
Oh don't give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
No, don't you give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit
For my head will fly, my tongue will lie, my eyes will fry and I may die
Won't you pour me one more of that sinful Old Janx Spirit
