Looks like mold to me.

Any strange smell or taste to it? It doesn't really look like brett or pedio but I'm no expert.

If it smells and tastes ok, rack from under it and leave the moldy stuff behind. If it tastes sour, then it might be a lacto or pedio infection.

Richie, those chunks in yours are just yeast.

yea, I scooped a bit up with a strainer just to give myself a nice clean path in there for my auto siphon without getting it on the tip.. got it in the keg.. we'll see how it tastes.. it finised well though.. so that's good.. 1.049 down to 1.010.. and it smelled decent..

what would cause mold to get in there?

My amber looked like that, too. I racked from underneath the mold and bottled it. It has been in bottles near two months now and while it's not great, it is certainly drinkable enough that my wife is going through it like crazy. I can detect a slight off taste but my wife and friends who have tried it say it's fine.

Good luck.

This is the second beer that this happened to? If it is, then you've definitely got a problem, more than likely in your plastic equipment. You can throw away all plastic, and bleach bomb anything that isn't plastic.
