Alright. I've had an amber ale in the kegerator for some time now. It was previously somewhat hazy, but clearly an amber beer. I stopped drinking it for a couple of weeks, just poured myself one, and now its a light, milky brown. Still smells fine. I'm letting it sit for a minute to see if it clears up at all, but I'm still confused as to why it turned out like this.

Anyone else have this experience?

Pour another pint and see if it's the same. That haziness could have all settled to the bottom, and gotten poured in that glass you have now.

Yep, was just about to post this. Even though I'd already drank 3/4 of it, the haze re-settled and the first pint was all of it.

Thanks!
