Default Frozen keg :(

Went out to pour a beer this afternoon and thought my keg was empty, turns out it is frozen solid. Should have turned down kegerator. Any ideas to as whether this might be a wasted batch?

Let it thaw and re carb, it will be ok.

I've never had it happen to me before, but I believe I've read that it will be fine once it completely thaws out. Imbibe away!

This happened to me once as I was setting things up. Honestly, there was a noticeable drop in the quality of the beer after it thawed, but it wasn't undrinkable.

Happened to me too. Beer was fine once you thaw it.

This happened to me once. I don't think it hurt my beer any, I still drank it. Didn't notice any difference.
