Default what does chill haze look like?

I've brewed a few gallons now and not sure if any of my brews exhibit chill haze. Since my 3rd brew i have been using Irish moss and do see proteins settling in my hydrometer test tube when i make my sg draw. Since these proteins settle out and i also secondary my brews i don't think i've seen the haze and am curious what it looks like. When i chill my bottles the beer is still clear to see through but when i pour i can't see through it.

Hmmm i think mine def have the haze then but is it hard to tell with darker ales? The lightest i've made so far has been a cream ale but most have been ipa or darker. My kolsch is still in secondary so haven't had a chance yet to determine. I'm also drinking from a guiness pint glass eon't know if it makes a difference.

Chill haze is irrelevant in darker ales (porter, stout, etc.).

when a beer is clear at room temp, but it's hazy when it's told, that's chill haze.

Would the haze occur in the bottle when chilled? Once opened and poured? Does it happen with extract brewing? I know i don't chill fast it takes around 30 minutes in cold water bath for my wort to get pitch temp.
