Default Frozen Keg

I just found out the hard way that when I have 6 kegs in my fridge the one in the middle at the front freezes because of where the cold air blows into the fridge. I had a keg conditioning and now its frozen solid. I have 2 questions, will it taste like it should when it thaws and should I let it thaw slowly or pull it out and let it sit at room temperature? I'm bummed.

Pull it out of the fridge. I had a keg freeze once and it took 2 days at room temp to not still have any ice inside. Don't purge or touch the release valve. Once it's cooled back down the co2 will absorb back into the beer
