Default white spots on top of my kolsch

so yesterday i grabbed my secondary filled with some hopefully delicious honey Kolsch and put it on the kitchen counter to settle out and ready it for bottling today. i noticed there were a couple small spots floating on top of the beer. i figured maybe it was some trub or air bubbles that had just floated to the top. no biggie. i just got home with some bottles ready to light this bottling candle and noticed that the spots have grown a little bigger. i don't notice any mold growing and as i said, the spots look like a collection of tiny bubbles. but i'm of course worried now because they got bigger over night. any suggestions?

Posting a picture would help. My computer didn't load that until after I posted. Is it like film? When did you add the honey?

How does it smell? Have you been brave enough to taste it yet? It shouldn't kill you, 'nothing pathenogenic to man can live in beer'.

Very true. It might just go sour. You could age it for a while and see how it turns out.. One of mine went sour a coulple months ago because I was sampling and showing it off to my friends and some wild stuff got in.

Okay, obviously you're brave enough.
A whole school bus? Really?
