Frosty mug is one reason, in my experience. Them things will foam tap Bud Light.
Try one in a regular, room temp glass.

6 weeks for a pale ale is a long time, but certainly no harm done leaving it in so long.

I had one that was over carbed and the only way to drink it was to slowly pour it into a 4 cup measuring cup and then wait for the head to go down. Then I transfered it to a drinking glass and enjoyed it.

The 5oz they include in many kits is usually a bit too much. 4.0-4.25oz (by weight, not volume) is going to get you closer to the 2.4-2.5 volumes of CO2 that work well for getting a good drinking carb.

For this batch, I like C-rider's suggestion best.
